    How do Sony DVD recorders compare with Pioneers latest models?
    Are the RF tuner and video circuitry any better on the Sony than the Pioneer?
    The only advantage I can see on the Pioneer is the multi-res technology : where it supports 3/4 and 2/3 res until 3hrs30mins, before dropping to 1/2 res (most other players drop to 1/2 res after 2hrs).
    Component isn't an issue, I don't have plasma or TV that has this.

    If resolution is a must,Thomsons new DVD+ recorder uses SP res up to 3 hours,normally only 2.5 on other DVD+ recorders,and 2.25 on DVD- machines.What Video reported this in their review-but no similar info on the Pioneer.
    However,the Sony also offers DVD+RW if you need your rewritable discs to be fully compatible with other players.Pioneer's new models are supposed to offer compatibility improvements with -RW,but I have seen no reports yet.And the Sony has RGB in,whereas the Pioneer does not.
