    Because that is the going price. It is a low spec DVD recorder hence cheaper than most/all others.

    Got one for my neighbour for £378 delivered from Comet.

    Messiah: Do you by any chance have an idea of whether the 880 can select the PAL format for the tuner? Since my original plan of getting a UK version DMR-E30 of this reason I'm exploring other avenues.

    UK models are already set to PAL.. Did not see any option to change it to anything different.

    I dowloaded the manual which mentions a country setting maybe this will change the PAL format between PAL/I and PAL/BG.

    Thanks!
