Hi, Im a novice who has been enjoying reading all the threads on combined DVD and HDD systems. I have some questions that I hope an expert out there may be able to help with. I would like to convert various vhs films to DVD and also transfer some old vinyl records to CD. The advice given to some other members was to use a HDD/DVD system (such as the Toshiba RD-XS34 or Pioneer DVR 530H) and if necessary write to a DVD RW and make any conversions etc on the PC later. The problem is that if I am investing in a DVD/HDD system (and dont have buckets of spare cash) I would like to add functionality by being able to record not only terrestrial TV (as we have at the moment) but also Sky/Freeview. I see that some members have mentioned that freeview will probably be included in some machines available in September. Does anyone know this for sure? Or is it just wishful thinking! I am expecting my next baby in November and if I buy new kit I need to install it whilst I can still reach the connections! Any help/advice would be very gratefully received!
