    I've just picked up a rumour about these two new Sony Hard Disc/DVD Recorders due out around September/October this year.
    They are both said to have Freeview Tuners :clap:
    If so perhaps the long wait for a properly specked Sony machine is over!
    Anyone out there heard any more?
    It will be interesting to make the comparison against the Toshiba 34.

    I think you'll find that the 910 has infact got a 250gb disk and the 710 a 160gb disk. The 710 is showing on the Sony site and appears to be available at many websites whereas the 910 will be available later in October.

    You can find a manual for the non digital versions of the 510,710 and 910 on the sony.co.uk site.

    Has anyone actually got one of these yet? If so, could you answer a few questions for me?

    1. 121 Electricals site says this model has Showview and PDC etc. which implies it has an analogue tuner as well as digital, however, I thought the Sony models with digital tuners only had the one tuner, not both. Can anyone confirm the score?

    2. EPG buffering for recording - Superfi's site says you can record via the EPG or manually. Am I right in thinking that other models such as the GXD500 had no way to record other than from the EPG and also without being able to add a buffer (per Rasczak's comments above). As Superfi's site suggest manual recording is possible this would get round the problem. Again, anyone know whats the score with this new model?

    I may have more questions, but for now, any assistance would be appreciated.

    If you do a search or 2, you will find threads on this that have been going for months. :D
