    Hi

    Total newbie to this so I hope I can get some good advice please. I am thinking of getting Archos to use as a pvr to record programmes from my sky box. However what I may want to do is then be able to burn some of these recording to dvd via a pc. Would something like the AV700 be suitable for this?

    Many thanks in advance,

    Bill

    Not sure about the 700 series but fairly sure it would so as you want - the Archos devices record to avi format, you can then burn it as a DVD. It can be a bit time consuming though as the video needs to be converted before it can be burnt.

    Why bother burning them to a DVD, just use your PC as a backup to the Archos and use the Archos to watch them on or play them back through the TV.

    Otherwise you might be better off getting a DVD recorder.
