For me a dvd player without the option to record directly what is broadcasted (like a vhs player) is crap. Gräfdig P.s: And I said FOR ME :wink:

Well look what its competeing with? VHS and CD? Store alot more info with better quality at the same size…

GrefdigGloner - you’d better get yourself a Philips DVDR880 or 890 then! I know where you can pickup an 880 (which can even be made multi-region with a handset hack) for £370 including VAT and carriage. What a bargain! Where? :slight_smile:

Youed have to be pretty serios about copying tv programs to go to DVD , right now its hardly practical, the old VCR is fine for general TV taping.

Doesn’t everyone just Tivo their old shows now?

DVD-players are getting cheaper and can function as both a movie and a music disc player
Except when you have been buying copy-protected cd’s from e.g. Sony or BMG of course, which will simply refuse to work on your DVD-player. But hey, don’t worry, the solution is right there!

All one would need some day is just the PC, a monitor/projector/HDTV, Speaker system and some portable media player for traveling with. ;9
