but which DVD recording format will eventually win the war ? As a DVD recorder is the next logical step for most people wishing to upgrage from VHS are we any further forward with the great format debate ? Just seen a news review for a new DVD recorder combined with 40gb hard drive which is due to be lauched in the UK this autumn. Looks and sounds fantastic but is it worth buying or will it be obsolete in a year ? I think the player in question uses the DVD Ram format. What do you think ?.
