    I am a bit of a novice when it comes to the features and positives/negatives of the DVD recorders out there. I have seen some very good reports for Pioneer recorders and have more or less decided to go with one of the above (I know the DVR220 is not out just yet). Cost seems to be around 270 quid for both.

    Could anyone explain to me in laymans terms the relative differences between the 2 - I know the DVR3100 does not have progressive scan?? (dont know what this is) but it does have a DV input which I would appreciate as I have a DV video camera.

    Any advice or comment would be appreciated. Also, if anyone has any alternatives I would appreciate your comment.

    PS For info, I will be using the recorder mainly for transferring stuff from Sky plus onto disk, but hope to also use it to put recordings from my video camera onto DVD.

    Thanks again

    I'm interested in one of the 2 new DVD recorders that Pioneer will be releasing in June. Info here
    I think the main difference is that the new ones (DVR220 and DVR320) will have RGB in which means that it should be better quality recording. Avland have info about them and say that stock is due in June.
    Has anyone seen any advance reviews on these yet ?
