I very much like the idea of replacing my JVC HR-S4600U S-VHS with a DVD recorder this year or next if prices start to come down (hardware and software) and more players become available. Also, like many of you, I would like to see one recording format become the standard. Did the CES provide any useful insight as to where the DVD recorder market may be headed in 2002? Any signs of cheaper recorders forthcoming and/or one format taking the lead? I have no interest at this point in spending upwards of $1000 for the currently available Panasonic, Philips, or Pioneer Elite models. Thanks in advance.
