My old Panasonic DMR-HS2 has finally packed up. The DVD tray is stuck, won't go in or out. Had stripped it down but can't find what it is causing it.

Am now looking for a multi region dvd recorder with a harddrive. Budget is below £250 but will extend it if worth it.

It must be multi region or be easily converted to multi region. Any recommendations? Are panasonic still troublesome. Mine had problems turning on so in the end i just left it on all the time.

Look at the EX773 ... or with more features an EX83. [ About 200 - 230 ]

The units are a lot slicker than the HS2 days.

It may be worth spending more if you want to go into the HD domain.
Twin HD tuner units are available with either DVD drives or Bluray drives.

See this sticky for more detail.

See this post regarding the multiregion issue.
