When reading around within this forum the summary regarding recommended DVD HDD recorders are either Panasonic when it comes to image quality and next after that Pioneer due to the GUI. But, how bad is the Pioneer then compared with the Panasonic? Would anyone be able to provide examples from example Panasonic 85/95 and Pioneer 520/720. Since would assume that mentioned system would be match to each other regarding price range. I'm currently using the first generation of the Hauppauge PVR board so it would be interesting also to get some kind of impression of how well the mpeg2 coding is done.
