    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.

    That's right, it will. If I was forced to return either my Sky+ box or my DVD recorder, I'm afraid the DVD recorder would go :)

    The thing is, the Panasonic has a hard drive and time slip, and also the capabality of recording to DVD disk. Is there any point in having both DVD recorder, and Sky+?

    Useful for archiving recordings from Sky+ to DVD. Also handy if you've a DV camcorder. Apart from that.......

    Personally, happy with just Sky+ (with upgraded HDD), at least until DVD/HDD recorders drop significantly in price.
