    Can someone advise which of the above is best. I need something easy to use with timeslip, 8hr rec time, jpeg, and good quality/reliability. Oh and I understand some DVD recorders have fans which run all the time, are these noisy? Are there any known problems with either product other than the menu thing on the Panasonic mentioned in the forum?
    For info I already have a JVC TV (1 yr old). Thanks.
    Nigel.

    If you do a search of the Forum you will see that the JVC has some reliability issues (I should know, I'm on my second). Some members (presumably more knowledgeable than I) have posted that there is a fix for the problems, but even my current machine does an occasional green flash with certain DVD-R.

    The fan is not always on on the JVC unless you place it in Sat mode (i.e. it can be triggered by an external source). In normal mode the fan comes on every hour when the clock re-sets itself. You can turn this off through the menus. As with most background noises, when the fan is on you notice it starting and you notice it stopping, but once on it blends into background noise.

    I find the JVC is easy to use (and timeslip is a fantastic invention), but as I've not used any other recorders, this shouldn't be taken as a guide

    You should perhaps ask yourself whether you need RGB input (which means the Panny) or DVD-RW support (which means the JVC).

    Thanks John,

    Looks like I'll probably pitch for the JVC but I'm curious to know what went wrong with yours and whether the replacement is any better?

    Thanks
