New poster here... I'm trying to choose between the Panasonic DMR-EX75 and the Pioneer DVR-540HX and thought I might be able to get some views here. It is to replace a Sony HX900, as I need better editing facilities. I'm swaying towards the Pioneer because of the genre function for recordings, the frame level editing, the TV Guide looks better and I think it's a nicer looking unit. However, the Panasonic has HDMI and quickstart. Can I have views on these features please? Is quickstart just for recording? Does it mean leaving the unit on standby (or similar)? Any other info to make up my mind would be great.
