Hi, I want to buy a recorder with a hard drive, and had narrowed my search down to the Panasonic EH50 or Toshiba XS34. But then I saw a posting on another review for a dvd recorder; "...Eventually contacted Panasonic here who inform me that there's an E55EBL Model for the irish market, the decoder is UHF whereas it's vhf in the UK. Hopefully you get to read this before opening the box and going through hours of head-scratching and wife annoying behaviour..." I looked up the irish broadcast frequencies here and it seems that since I live in Ireland, I will need both UHF and VHF support. So, my question is, is there any good DVD/HD recorder that can be bought from UK and can operate on both UHF and VHF? Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Thanks, John.
