Hello all. This is my first post although I've been visiting this forum for a long time. I would like to buy a DVD/HDD recorder but the choices that are available to me are quite limited (ironic considering that I live in Hong Kong). Recently, LG Electronics have released one of their new DVD/HDD recorders onto the market here in HK. More details are in the following webpage: http://www.lge.com/catalog/prodmode...lobalCode=RH7800&globalSuffix=000000&model=1# The HK model is actually RH7823 but it is virtually identical to the Korean model. This LG dvd recorder has everything that I want... - 160GB HDD - multi format - dvd dual layer recording - DV input (essential to me) - 4 hour full resolution - divx / xvid playback One thing I can't verify is whether it has component in/out. RGB scart is irrelevant as HK doesn't support it. So what I want to ask is whether it is worth getting compared to the big brands (eg. Panasonic, Sony, Toshiba, Pioneer etc.)? I know a lot of forum members gave good marks to the Toshiba XS34 and Panasonic EH50, but unfortunately both models are not yet released here in HK. Thanks in advance.
