Hi all I'm a little behind on the times and it's time to get caught up a bit. The DVD player in my wife's TV room finally died and I want to replace it with a DVD recorder. I just want to be able to burn a few things directly to DVD from time to time (mainly sports and a few news-type shows to view later). I want it on DVD for portability. We have Timewarner Cable and the TV in that room does not have a cable box-- we're just running coaxial straight from the wall to the DVD player then from DVD player to TV. Now that DVD player is dead...can we do the same setup with a DVD recorder? Any specific models you'd suggest without breaking the bank? Or if I'm shopping around, what should I look for? Thanks!
