I have waited just about long enough to purchase a DVD recorder. I have narrowed my choices down to either the Philips DVDR985 or the Panasonic DMR-E30. I would appreciate help deciding. On one hand, reviews on the Philips model criticize it for its overscan problem with its progressive scan output and it is more expensive than the Panasonic. However, I think I remember reading that the Panasonic model doesn't have a firewire input, preventing recording from digital camcorders. To me this is a glaring omission. Please help. Thank you.
