My Philips DVDR890 has gone belly up again & I am currently trying to get Philips to sort it out or replace it even though it is out of warranty. It leaves me with nothing on which to record stuff at the moment so I was thinking of getting a HDD recording device. In an Ideal world I would get the Panny HS2 or similar but unfortunately I do not have enough pennies. So - with a budget of 350 quid max what do the panel suggest. I was thinking of perhaps one of these JVC-XV-DDV1 / Thompson DTH7000U / Samsung DVDH40. I also looked at the Pace Twin but wasnt sure how that would fit in with my Sky box - I dont want 2x Sky Sat boxes as I already have enough kit under my telly as it is. Any comments on the above machines or suggestions for alternatives welcome.
