    Can anyone help. I am looking at the JVC XVDDV1 Recorder with 80gb hard disk and i link for under £400. For just a few pound more it seems somehow better than the Panasonic DMRE 60 but I am not sure why.
    Is it better to record to a hard disk, and will this allow me to have more editing features than recording direct to a dvd. And why do I need a hard disk anyway??If anyone has had experience of this recorder I would like to hear from them.Many Thanks.

    Hard disc recording offers longer recording at better quality versus a removable disc.
    From what I remember the only downside of the JVC is some RGB out issue (or lack of it).
    I have the HS2 and love it even though it has it's own issue of live synch.

    Is the JVC not a HDD/dvd player-not a dvd recorder

    Thank you Phelings for your question, if it is a HDD/dvd player what is the difference.Perhaps it is what Ged said about recordings that is the difference.
    PS. I have never come across a product,where so few people know about it, least of all sales people in shops, and there seems to be so much confusion as to what does what.

    I would say that at £400,a HDD/DVDR from JVC would be a top seller.I am sure I have seen it mentioned elsewhere that you can record to HDD only,but the dvd section is player only,meaning you have no way to save recordings.

    The JVC you mention is a combi unit, HDD PVR and DVD player in one box. it is not a HS2 type machine at all. If £400 is your budget and you dont have SKy then a Pace Twin and E50 is superb idea or the new Humax single tuner PVR and E50 available for £245+£170=£415 very highly functional combination.

    Thank you Horneydragon,I already have a dvd player (Sony), wife won it along with a 32" Sony wide screen tele. but need a recorder with a i link for camcorder.Looks like I will be going for a Panasonic DMRE60, which seems to be spoken about favourable in these pages.I shall look up your suggestions as well. Thank you.
