I am making some additions to my current home theater setup. One of these is replacing my dusty, unused VCR with a DVD recorder. I'm also going to get an HD DVR from my cable company. I'm going to come out of that using component video and digital optical. I'd like to go through a DVD recorder to get to my receiver so that I can record a TV show to a DVD. Here's my problem: I can't find a DVD recorder that has component in/out and optical in/out. Does anyone know of one on the market (bonus points if it will encode the audio as an AC3 so I can record 5.1 surround onto the DVD)? The other requirement is that it must use DVD-R media. I'd like to be able to use the same blank DVD's on my computer and on my DVD recorder. My computer is almost four years old and only burns DVD-R's. If that isn't on the market, I'll just send S-Video and stereo RCA's out of my receiver into the recorder.
