I am a total newbie and i have never owned a DVD Recorder. Can anyone recommend a Good Sony DVD Recorder? I have looked at RDR-HX510S which seems ok. I have read in many places of problems with Sony Recorders, are there reliability issues, things like very slow disc loading, remote lag, rejecting and trashing discs etc. Are there reliability issues with the Sony machines in general or just with individual models or are they generally good? I would like progressive scan, dual layer compatability, good recording (no artefacts or noise interference), good playback, RGB output (as I believe this is best isn't it?) and most other things I haven't remembered. High Definition Recording would be nice but i'm not going to be able to afford it. If you have a sony machine then let us know what it's like and I would appreciate recommendations from those of you that know shed loads about this stuff. I want to get shot of my vhs but i do not wish to buy a donkey. Thanks All.
