    The Pioneer 5100 does indeed use a VBR in all it's recordings.

    Hi Rasczak,

    Welcome back from Japan. Thanks for that. Don't think I can stretch to a Panny E100 so I think a 5100 will do. Do you know if Pioneer are planning any new DVD Recorders this year?

    Thanks

    Mel

    A modified version of the Pioneer 5100 should be out this year or early next - it supports RGB in as well! Other new HDD/DVDR combos in the next couple of months are the Panasonic E85 (a cheap, no frills model), two new JVC models (a budget one with a 80GB HDD and a top of the range one with 160GB) and the Panasonic E95 (E100 replacement). Looking slightly further ahead (September and onwards) the Sony RX8 and RX10 both look nice as well - the latter is supposed to have a Freeview tuner!
