Phillips880 and Sky+ vs Panny HS2

I've ordered Sky+ and was going to compliment it with the Phillips 880

However after reading several threads on the subject I am worried I may have made a mistake

since the Panny HS2 sounds very good indeed

The Sky+ / 880 combo will set me back at aroun d £650 plus an additional £15 for sky+ features and old box upstairs

A multiregion HS2 looks to be around the £850 mark

The HS2 seems to have far more editing features such as removing ads and the 12hr RAM disks

However, if I am right Sky+ is the only option that will allow me to record one sky channel whilst watching a different sky channel (Infact i could record two different things if you include the box upstairs)

Any advice would be gratefully recieved? :confused:

I have a couple of days in which i could cancel the sky+

Also in other threads people stated dvd+rw cost £4 + I have found 25 Traxdata DVD+RW for £55. Are these poor quality?

Finally, the specs on the 880 claim it has component output, is this via 3 rca leads like my tosh210?

RGB component video input / output via SCART.

No YPbPr component video output via 3 rca leads like your 210.

You won't regret Skyplus+, but HS2 is overpriced as yet, buy a DMR-E30 if you fancy a Panasonic, the Philips works O.K.

i was considering the panny. However, many of the advantages of the panny over the phillips seemed to be covered by sky+
