    Afternoon all.

    I'm looking for a dvd/hdd recorder in black. I hate all these silver boxes everywhere!

    I'd really like the Pioneer 530 or the Toshiba XS34 in black.

    Does anyone know where i can get one or know of a decent model in black!?

    Thanks in advance.

    David.

    In the UK we're currently in 'silver' mode. My hi-fi is all black and I'll have to wait for black to come round again before I add to or change it.
    You may find black available in other EU countries (Netherlands or Germany probably best as they use PAL TV) , but I'm not sure if the specs are fully compatible. The DVD/HDD would be OK, but the tuner could be different. The manual wouldn't be in English, but you can always download a UK version. Remote would be 'foreign' too.

    I dream of one day that silver and black components can live side by side as equals. It's outright techo-apartheid. It you keep oppressing black components they will rise up and riot and throw things at you evil silver crusaders of the north. Sony is Great. Sony is Great. :devil:
