    Hopefully I won't get my P P slapped for this but just wanted to mention that I created a Yahoo group devoted to Philips DVD recorders to share news or tips for this new, but fast growing technology.

    HTF doesn't seem to have a section devoted to the DVD Recorder so I wanted to get a small corner of the world reserved to talk about this recorder.

    I just got my DVDR75 a couple of weeks back and so far it has been a great new addition to my Home Theater.

    If I'm in the wrong for posting this, feel free to close this thread down.

    Regards
    Alfer

    Interesting, I got one of those for free not too long ago with my Philips VISA. I tried a couple of things on it and then lent it to a friend who has more time to go over stuff. I told him to keep it and go over it for a couple of weeks and then tell me what it will and won't do. It will for example only accept 480i over the component inputs. I did drive myself a little wacky trying to see if it could record HD TV. I have joined stuff like that before and ended up with lots of junk E-Mail, but would welcome any info you would want to share. Only got it since I got a Pronto from the same program almost 2 yrs. prior and there was nothing else that interested me in their current promo catalog.

    I don't record much but figured I could always copy some tapes I made (e.g the inside of the walls of my house when it was going up) and since the unit has a built in analog TV tuner, I just removed the VCR I bought just for that purpose the few times a year I may watch analog TV.

    I'm a member of both sites you've mentioned, but DVDRhelp.com only deals with -R recorders, and DVDPlus seems to cater to overseas models and it has very few discussions about the new US models it seems..plus there's a couple of people who badger people who post questions they don't like, and not much gets done around there.

    Honestly if my little "group" gathers a nice following, it would be nice, but as you know in this fast paced internet world, people will migrate all over to give/get info, so my feelings won't be hurt if the group doesn't take off.

    Thanks
    Alfer
