HI. I need to replace my video recorder , and a replacement for my Pioneer 444dvd. i have seen the Panasonic e30 and e50 on Techtronics and other websites and was wondering how it compared against other dvd recorders. I am "very" new to this area and am unsure about all the dvd-r/rw and dvd+r/rw and also dvd ram. Dont want to buy somthing that will be obsolite when it arrives. http://www.techtronics.com/uk/shop/50-panasonic-dmr-e30-multi-region-dvd-player.html is one i am looking at. I also do not understand what a "Techtronics Video Enhancer Scart Cable " is/ would do , and what is vcr mode about.
