    hi

    just like it says above i'm after a multi region dvd recorder with prog scan playback
    on the prog scan front do they all do a good job on R1 - judder / 50-60Hz?

    not too fussed about recording frills - plain old recording should do ....

    any help much appreciated

    budget could be £150 - £350 really so fire away !

    Are you sure you want a DVD recorder? ;) Seriously if you not to bothered about editting/archiving I would recommend Sky+ or a Freeview PVR above a DVD recorder.

    If your certain you do want a DVDR then the best DVD playback decks are currently the Toshiba RDXS32 or DR1 (and presumably the new DR3), followed by the Sony range, followed by the Panasonic range. So I would pick your recorder from those depending on which features you want/how much you want to spend.

    thanks for that
    i'm trying to downsize on the number of boxes so a dvdr is the way i hope!
    thanks for that - looks like a tosh is the way
    i was just concerned about R1 playback as i have a midrange JVC all in one that will perform the sound duties, but would like a prog scna image for all my sources.

    maybe an iscan is an option but i think there is still the R1 issue + lip sync which i guess a dedicated dvdr with ps won't suffer from?

    cheers
