    Does this DVD recorder possess the feature that the JVC MH20 etc does (Live View IIRC) where it will automatically buffer a designated amount of time on to the HDD. I.e you do not have to set the DVDR to record, and can therefore record programmed retrospectively? Because this sounds like a really nice feature.

    Thanks

    No it does not have a live buffer. In fact the HDD goes to sleep after 30 mins of no operations.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Thats dissapointing, do any other DVDHDDs other than the JVC range offer this feature?

    Thanks :)

    Sorry I don't know, maybe others will do.

    My TiVo has a live buffer but to be honest I don't find it particularly useful as it only records one channel at a time so what you might want to record may not be being buffered because it’s on a channel that is not being monitored.

    I see what your saying. As i use Cable though, i can see situations occuring where i get in to a film, doccumentry etc, and wish that i had set it to record.
