I want one
oh yeah..... Just order mine, should be here sooooon...
exceptional, but still has major room for improvement .
Anyone know where I can rent one ????
Now isn't that a good business to start ???
Toshiba have the RD-X1 due in 'Autum 2002' (very non-specific) as well. I think I'll wait for a few models to increase the competion.
lol I bet this guy is another overpaid cockney <BLEEP> <-- sounds abit like bowler hat
damn I am so jealous, does anyone know if its multiregion and macro disabled?
Haven't been there but if it is the HDD one it still needs a DVB-T tuner to sell it to me!
why what else would you require?
the one thing I dont like is mpeg1 is part of the DVD specification yet none of these recorders use it, which is ghey!
What else - DTTV tuner of course with bit stream recording rather than decode/encode
these guys are doing it for £80 less
okay i only have 2 brain cells, tell me why please?
From what i've been told by a few dealers the multi region is ok but the macrovision probably wont be there unless you cook the price by another £100 or so and add an aftermarket chip.... .... I let you know closer to the eta of the player...
So it records a widescreen BBC picture rather than a 14:9 letter box on multi path interfearance vision!
Why bit stream record rather than decode/encode?
Better quality - record the MPEG2 stream rather than decode to component or RGB then reencode back to MPEG2
For me, the one big feature missing is DVD-RW support.
Ideally I'd like a machine with a built-in hard-drive that supports both DVD-R and DVD-RW, but there doesn't seem to be anything like this on the horizon.
Desk. No HDD/-RW combi stand alone machine planned as far as I know. But there will be a a multi computer DVD recorder drive soon to be available that will read/write to RAM/ - RW/ & - R discs and of course you have your computer hard drive too. With a TV tuner in your computer you have much of what you want!!!!!!!
