Post Info on DVD Recorders

Anyone here has one? Would appreciate some feedback on them.

- Can they be used just like a VCR?
- What formats can you record in?
- What is the current price range?
- Which are the best VFM brands?

Here you go
http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/pn...6_4137,00.html
http://www.dvdrecorder.philips.com/
Sony india
http://www.sonyindia.co.in/static/DVDRecorder.htm
For the FAQ
http://hometheater.about.com/od/dvdr...ecfaqintro.htm

As for the format, it will play in any DVD player manufactured after 2000.
Price: high end ones cost around 50K in india. The panasonic one has a 80GB HDD and should be yours for about 48K.
Without HDD, the sony models are 44K. the 160GB HDD recorder is 69K.
Get one from the US, a non HDD model will cost you < 20K

For PC use you need a DVD-writer which is pretty cheap(6000rs). Infact a TV tuner card+DVD writer will set you back by only 10K, however these recorders will cost minimum 30K.

If cost is no objective, buy a DVD burner for the PC and a DVD Recorder for the TV.... finding one deivce to do both jobs is going to be very tough!
