I have read many of the threads but still don't know what DVD Recorder to buy. I already have:- Sony Trinitron Digital TV KD-28DX51U with 2 scarts (1 RGB & 1 S-Video), & 2 RF out (analogue & digital), & 1 other RF out, & PCMCIA socket (?), & 1 AV3 S-Video input, & AV3 Video/Audio inputs, + built in Freeview. Sharp VC-MH85HM VCR with 2 scarts (L1 son/video & L2 decoder/canal plus), & 2 audio out (R/D, L/G, & video/audio in (phono). Sony DVP-NS355 DVD player (+RW,+R,-RW,-R,JPEG,MP3CD-R,CD-RW,VCD,DVDRW in VR) with 1 scart (RGB), 1 component video out (phono), 1 S-video out, plus other Line Out jacks,Digital Out jack, Digital Out Optical jack. Sony Digital DCR-TRV130E Video Camera What I want to do:- 1) to record various Freeview digital channels whilst I'm not at home 2) to record channels while I'm watching another channel on TV 3) to have discs I've recorded compatible with other players 4) time shift wanted 5) camcorder to VHS & to DVD 6) lots archiving VHS to DVD Question time:- a) I presume I need another Freeview to do 1), & have looked seriously at buying Sony DVDRGX500 (with built in Freeview); would this suit my purpose for the above ? b) Presumably a DVDR with built in Freeview would in any case be better & simpler to use & the best option ? c) With the Sony models being discontinued, should I wait for later on this year when new models are on sale ? d) Should I wait anyway as there is presently very little choice with built in Freeview ? e) I have read of twin tuners ! Is this something I should look for/need ? Excellent forum; thanking you all in anticipation.
