Ok i am definitaly new to this dvd recording thing so please bar with me.
I have been transferring video via firewire, from my motorola comacast hi-def dvr box to my pc and recently noticed i cant transfer shows with 5c copy protection on them. i needed a way to copy these shows and so i went in these forums and people said that some dvd recorders will do it.
So i decided im going to get a dvd recorder. I have heard and read some bad stories on all the faults and glitches with dvd recorders, and how only a very few produve good results and a very few let your record copy protected material.
Can someone please point me in the right direction to the best dvd recorder i can get.
My requirements listed from most important to least are :
1)be able to record NFL channel 5c copy protected shows from my comcast motorla dct6412 cable box.
2)recorder that produces high quality dvd’s.
3)compatible with dvd-r’s
4)allows me to record Hd signals through svideo and have the resulting dvd anamorphic widescreen.(i know all recorders downscale the signal to 480i but my main concern is i want the show to keep its widescreen effect when its burned to the dvd.
5)Basically and all around quality dvd recorder. i heard JVC was the best.
EDIT : oh and i would possibly like the recorder to have HDMI output on it. but if there are no “quality” recorders with HDMI then i geuss i can get a seperate dvd player with HDMI out.
Any suggestions??? i only want the best
