I had been considering purchasing a Panasonic DMR-85 hard disk DVD recorder to hook up to my television. Mainly to record and view later off the hard disk, but with the capability if putting some stuff onto DVD, both from recorded TV programmes, and, perhaps from camcorder. Today, I was given a Christmas present of a Sky+ box- (I already subscribe to the full Sky programmes). I could return the Sky+ box to Argos, from where it was purchased, and put the money to buy the Panasonic, or go ahead and install and use the Sky+ box. Or buy the Panasonic, and keep the Sky+ box? Would anybody like to enlighten me with their own experiences? Thanks in advance.
