Question ID: 784442
I'm seriously thinking of buying myself a DVD Recorder for Christmas
but what sort & what make & model?

I already have a DVD Player (which I might have to ditch but SEE
BELOW); a VHS recorder/player (which I wish to keep); and a Freeview
box with Hard Disk (which I also wish to keep).

I would like the capabilty of recording stuff from existing DVD's (so
I guess that I need to keep my DVD player) and Vids, and also from my
Freeview Hard Disk. PLUS Editing Capability - so that I can record
segments rather than entire content. (My Freeview Hard Disk is already
so endowed.)

Could I hook a new DVD Recorder into my existing kit and achieve all
the required effects - without swapping cables around? And, if so,
how? (They all seems to have 2 SCARTs plus other Input/Output

Also, I do not understand the DVD Recording Media options, all this +
and - and other stuff. Preferably, I want a fully-featured Recorder
but without any unnecessary gizmos like Freeview and VHS.

I don't have a budget in mind because I know full well that whatever I
buy today will look expensive in a year's time.

Over to you but please remember that this is for the UK and what might
work in the Colonies may be totally unsuitable for me.

Many thanks
