Like others on this forum I'd be keen on the Sony HX900 if it wasn't for its shortcomings, particularly no HDD playlist and a maximum of 8 timer recordings. Member grumpy42 pointed out last week that the HX90 version in Japan has a 250GB HDD, HDMI, HDD playlists, EPG. And a maximum of 30 timer recordings! I've found a Japanese supplier that will ship for $1080 and $150 freight (!) and I guess there will be duty on top. I've also asked whether there's a manual in english and waiting for a reply. But I presume there will be compatibility issues in using this in the UK? Does anyone here have any experience in using a Japanese model in the UK? Probably over my budget anyway but would be interested to know.
