Extra £200 gets you a PS3.

Games console, divx playback, 40Gb HDD for your music etc, Blu-Ray player, USB and an Internet Browser.

And in March it will have Freeview recording capabilities (for £99)

Who records TV to DVD anyway?
If you really need to, most PCs have that function anyway.

The HDD in the PS3 eliminates the need

I bought a Sony DVD recorder 2 years ago, it £200+, this sounds like a good deal.
I've since bought a Humax 9200 so I hardly use for recording but the Sony's handy for films you want to save.

Since getting my Sky HD, I've been using the 'plus' recording capability and have not looked back :)

Yes but pound for pound, you're getting more than 3 times the features.
The Blu-Ray alone is worth more than £200.

PS3 is getting "Sky+" features but for Freeview in March, it'll be called "Play TV"

I know that what you are saying is correct, but, someone who wants a DVD recorder for £80(Like me) is hardly going to spend close to £300 for a PS3 that does not even do what a DVD recorder can do, ie record to DVD. :)

it does play DivX;-)

I still play and record to VHS, I don't own a single DVD. So obviously not interested in Blu-ray, and have no idea of what Divx is. I know it isn't a DVD that I can record to and send to my brother in the US, and my mum in the caribbean. Or is it? :thinking:

There are many dinosaurs like me out there, who a DVD recorder is just the thing

If you're after a DVD Recorder for the intention of saving programmes long term (e.g. a whole series that doesn't get a commercial DVD release), you'd probably be better looking for a DVD recorder with a HDD built in, so you can record the shows onto the HDD, then edit out the adverts and trailers etc before copying onto your DVD disc? If you're not bothered about the ads though, then this seems a good price!

Personally, i'd like to find a not too expensive DVD Recorder with HDD, featuring USB input and divx capabilities (and HDMI too if possible!)... maybe next Christmas when they're more popular :)

This recorder is on sale in Sainsbury's for this price (and so you get Nectar points).

No waiting for delivery.
#17
U can get the exactly the same player from John Lewis for £79.50 delivered ( using one of the many £10 off codes that are floating about) and you will get a 2 year warrenty instead of just 1 Year. Quidco at 3% is also available. Every little helps !!!

Does anyone know if it Multi regional ( ie plays region 1 dvd's) as I am getting mixed advice from diffrent suppliers.
#18
I have to laugh at some of the comments posted; a PS3. :whistling:

A DVD recorder that supports DivX and 1080P over HDMI is about the ideal solution for me to go with my Humax PVR. I prefer Region Free and this seems to need a PDA to hack the region code which puts me off.

I'm not bothered about the adverts, my rellies abroad prefer them in because it reminds them of dear old Blighty.

Sainsbury are a bit hit and miss when it comes to anything apart from food.
I prefer to buy online because of the distance selling regulations.

Thanks for that, the code is COSM851PCH774.

My Nationwide credit card used to give me an extra years warranty when I used it for purchases, may have to look into that. I would then get 3 years warranty.:thumbsup:

Does anyone know if this recorder will stop recording when the input to it stops?

i.e. When archiving off my PVR (thomson DHD4000), when the programme finishes playing will the recorder stop recording?

Thanks in advance :thumbsup:

Lol how is a PS3 being compared to a DVD Recorder?

I already own a PS3, but I still need a DVD Recorder.

I have a Panasonic DMR-EX85, but it seems to still be expensive online. Having hard disk is really useful you can record to hard disc and not be looking around for free discs, e.g. if all your discs have something on them you can record to hard disc and copy over later when you have discs free. I remember the old days of looking around for a free video tape with enough space on it. Also, like people mentioned you can usually edit the recording on hard disc (cut out ads etc).

Slightly going off topic:

On the note of PS3 it's technically great, but blue ray has region coding and you can't get around it. I know most will buy UK titles, but my present dvd recorder is region modded. I have some US titles that you can't get here (anime series, hong kong etc titles). At least dvd recorders, you can modify for playing other regions (even if you modified a blue ray player, next software update it will lock you out). What use is hi-def if i can't watch the content i want (note I'm talking about paying a legit retailer). Blue ray locks me out and hence I don't care much for it. HD-DVD at least has the positive of not having region coding, but you are stuck on one region on them for dvds.

Yeah, that 40Gb HDD's gunna store a lot of TV recordings :roll:

For the price of a PC you could build an entry level HTPC, and add in a BR/HDDVD drive in later when price has plummetted.

So, you're now comparing a £79 DVD recorder to a £450 behemoth!!!

Anyone able to answer the following?

If I connect my Freeview to the scart input will it then upscale the Freeview via HDMI, or does it only upscale DVD playback? I've read through the manual and it's very unclear, but this would work out far cheaper than buying an aftermarket upscaler and Sony tend to be very good on their upscaling.

Even if it does there’s no guarantee that it will upscale better than your TV does. It would be useful if it does especially if your TV is short on inputs. I’m guessing that the upscaling is for DVD playback only as it’s probably a feature of the DVD playback chipset.

So lets get this right:

1. 40 GB PS3 = £279
2. Wait 3 months for freeview on PS3 = £99
3 500GB external hard drive= £65

Total = £443

But... You still can't record to DVD. :)

Or spend £80 now and do it straight out of the box.

Do you work in sales?

:w00t: ROFL

That makes almost as little sense as saying that for an extra £200 you can buy a Samsung Fridge Freezer as neither of those products record to DVD.

If you ask Ken Livingston nicely he may well allow you to arrange a civil ceremony so that you and your PS3 can formally announce your love to the world.

No.

Do PVRs with USB let you copy mp4 to USBs then?

What models do that?

Thanks for the help? (I know its highjacking the thread slightly!)

SD PVRs record with MPEG2 so I’m not sure what you are referring to here.
My Humax PVR has USB and allows me to copy recordings to a PC but it doesn’t allow me to play MP4 files or any other from the USB port.

samsung dvd sh855M with twin digital tunner, dvd recoreder, 250gb internal harddrive and usb for connecting an external flash usb or hdd to run divx/avi movies off. Not sure if one can transfer files to it. Around £250.

It’s only about £200 but it has one digital tuner and one analogue tuner. It doesn’t record the digital stream unaltered but fits it to the nearest bit-rate to match the DVD recorder settings I presume; this is when recording to the hard drive. If it had two digital tuners it would be much more interesting.

I got this DVDR early November (£78.95 delivered from Digital Direct, £77.19 after Quidco) and it's ideal for transferring "keepers" to DVD from my Humax HDD.

Nice little machine, easy to use, good remote, good playback quality, fits the niche market where you've got a PVR or Sky+ box so don't need another digital tuner and hard drive in the DVD recorder. :thumbsup:

With DVD-R discs it does basic editing on recordings so you can trim the ends and cut out adverts, etc. The manual is available online (Sony Europe site) if you want to check out the full capabilities
