Has anyone got one of these? I am thinking of buying one, and wanted to know how good it is?
The recorder is brand new so experience of it is minimal as of yet. It is one of the first JVC models to feature RGB in/out so there is alot of interest in it - the JVC range of recorders are excellent bar the RGB input omission. The other models you could look at are the Panasonic ES20D and Sony GXD500 - both have Freeview tuners. For info on those models have a look at this thread.
I understand that the Panny also upscales DVDs to 480p or higher. Does this also mean that this kind of upscaling DVD player/freeview tuner will/can upscale digital TV broadcasts?
Ideally I'd like to see a machine which also incorporates xvid/divx and the ability to connect a DTS/5.1 speaker setup. I don't fancy a HTPC or Reelbox - just too many features which I would never use.
