Hi guys In the market for a first DVD Recorder and a bit confused by reading all the threads in the forum. I've got my choice down to Panasonic 30 or 50EBS or the Philips 880 or 890. Cost is important too , while i would ideally like the Panasonic DMR-HS2EBS that's beyond my budget. My main use will be archiving old VHS collection and general recording of Sky. One important factor will be my ability to share my recodred discs r or rw with my 2 brothers in the flat who have their own DVD players/X-box/PS2. Do any owners have any advice on which format might be best suited to my requiremnets .
