Like countless other members of this forum, I too am a newbie at this DVD recorder stuff but heres my question anyway. I have Sky+ and would like to archive to DVD. My TV is Sony, my surround is Sony so my obvious choice is the RDRGX7 from RGBDirect.co.uk at £484 - is this a good choice? Secondly, on Sony's site, the recorder is called the RDRGX7 however on RGBDirect's site it is called the RDRGX7S - is there a difference? Thirdly - I have read and heard good things about Panasonic DVD recorders however I'm not too sure about this RAM thing! f I was to buy a cheaper Panasonic and go for the RAM drive, I would require a drive for my PC that can read RAM discs. I have an Optorite DVD burner but I don't know if this can read RAM disks - anyone know? Please help me spend my hard earned cash sensibly. Much appreciated.
