I'm looking to buy a DVD/HD recorder. Although living in the UK, I enjoy watching the occasional French TV programme using an old analog satellite system. I would like to be able to record these SECAM broadcasts, as well as normal UK TV (terrestrial and cable) I've checked specs available on manufacturers websites, and emailed some customer support desks, but it would appear that the only manufacturer who claims to support SECAM is Lite-ON. (But I'm not sure all the customer support staff understood the question ) Their LVW-5045 supports SECAM however I've seen several reviews indicating that this machine is not a good buy because of poor RF tuner performance, giving rise to paterning on terrestrial broadcasts. I live in a fringe reception area so this is a significant defect from my perspective. Can anyone recommend any other machines? I just need a machine which supports SECAM video on the SCART input, it does not need to support the associated broadcast 'L' standard as well.
