Hi, For the past few months I've been trying to pull together an entirely new home entertainment system through my new NEC 61XR3 61" Plasma. Now, I've been looking for a DVD Recorder for quite some time and finally decided on the Sony RDR-HX900, but upon contacting a few stores they informed me that it had been discontinued and will be replaced by a new model in Q4 of this year. Now, I don't really want to wait that long (unless it's worth waiting for??? Anyone know what the new model is?), so I'd be really grateful for any suggestions any of you may have. I'll tell you why I liked the Sony RDR-HX900: - Large HDD (160gb) - Region free out of the box - Support for a large range of recordable media; DVD-R and DVD+R - The ability to automatically create chapters, menus and thumbnails for backed up recordings on DVD+-R. - Different recording modes such as Ultra HQ, HQ, EP, LP, SP, etc... Any suggestions for good (and recently released) alternatives would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
