Panasonic DVD recorders with DV-In?

Morning

I've got the e60 but it's been playing up (pixelating and hanging on stuff that I've recorded) so I'm thinking about trading it in and getting a newer version. The e65 didn't seem to add much to my model, have Panasonic released any other models with DV-In since then? Not really interested in the HDD range as Telewest will be releasing their HDD set-top box by Christmas.

Thanks in advance

Believe the only Panasonic one which has DV is the DMR-EH60D which is the freeview/analogue HDD. Around £400 so you wouldn't want that one. Only others I know are the JVC models which all seem to have DV inputs.

Thanks for your help Royold. Mebbe I'll just get my machine fixed or change the media and see if that helps.

Originally had my Panasonic E60 dvd recorder connected to the Topfield 5800t PVR but it absolutely refused to record a film ("Junior Bonner") to DVD-R. This was originally on the Topfield HDD. This leads me to believe that the E60 has some inbuilt hefty copy protection. The film was recorded from BBC1. I tried 3 times to transfer this film and each time it was cut within the first two mins with the E60 going into self check mode. This was the only transfer to fail.

I have since removed the E60 and connected the DMR-ES20D to the Topfield. Recording of the above film to DVD-R was successful on the first try. I even used the same disc which is a Datawrite Yellow 4x.
