Hi Since getting a working sky plus box I've been impressed with it. Now I want to replace the knackered vhs recorder with a dvd recorder. I've narrowed it down to three models. But now I'm stumped. The models are :- Toshiba xs32 Panasonic E55 Panasonic E85 Now I'm not going to be using it that much, but would like one just in case either a) a friend wants something taping from sky, or b) I want to keep something that I've recorded my self. So the question is, how useful have you found having the dvd recorder with a hard drive in? Have you used it as much as you thought you would? Or less? Also how easy is the tosh (Yes I've read THAT thread )to use? Cheers.
