Hi, At the moment, I own a very average DVD player (it's a Panasonic SL-GC10, which is a Gamecube/DVD hyrbid) and the picture quality isn't that amazing. Also it only does component or s-video for DVD. I've been looking to get Sky+, but as we have already one Sky+ and 2 normal boxes, we can't upgrade one of the 'normal' boxes as all the feeds from the satellite dish are now taken up. So, I've heard that DVD recorders, and ones with harddisks, can actually do a very good job similar to a Sky plus box-with the boxes using the Sky programme guide, and features such as recording whilst viewing something else, and pausing live TV. First of all, how does this work, as in is it possible for the DVD recorder to have access to the sky listings, without me having to manually put in a time and channel number etc when I want it to record? Are there any pictures online of the menus you would see? The following are the features I'd like, some may not be possible and if so, tell me. -Built in hard drive -Full RGB in and out -Wide disc compatability (I know there are all sorts of recordable discs so I'd like this to play a wide range, if not most of them) -Progressive scan -Easy recording-hopefully access to the full Sky programme guide. -If possible, (and maybe they all do this anyway) a model which will switch on at the time of recording and switch off afterwards. -Ability to pause/rewind etc live TV -Impressive picture -A multiregion, or easily moddable model as multi-region is a necessity. I'd really appreciate some answers to my questions and recommendations. Thanks!
