    Any dvd recorders with usb input

    Hi, i have googled since days (litterly)
    hopefully someone can help me

    looking for a dvd recorder that also allows me to play .avi movies via usb onto my tv

    would appreciate any models

    ps-most usb input dvd recorders i have seen say plays music and views photo only (not avi videos or any videos actually)- which is where the prob comes into

    sorry but im not the most upto date tech person

    the only ones i have seen also have hdd recorders in them, making them expensive

    the other option is to buy a usb media player you can plug in to the tv

    have gone for the media player you suggested- its a reasonable price:thumbsup:
    still need a dvd recorder though,
    do you know if ALL dvd recorders allow prerecorded programs on sky plus to be recorded onto dvd?
    or..
    do they only record live tv programs?

    at the very basic level, if you sky plus something and set the dvd timer to match, it should be ok
    if you have a sky box that records, you can try to transfer via scart (play on sky and record on dvd) but you may come accross a problem called macrovision, if sky do run that system, there is no way past it, basically it messes with the picture, I know sky use that on payperview movies to stop recording


    You would just have to hope is all
