Alright fellow HTFers. You have helped me in the past with such items as front projection, what screen to get, etc. I am now in the market for a dvd recorder and have some questions. Here is the dilemma. I would like to record television without "babysitting" like a vcr and then editing out the commercials. I have heard that with Tivo, this is not possible. I currently have dishnetwork and can get a pvr from them and then a dvd recorder to record on to dvd if I want. Or I can simply purchase a dvd recorder with a hard drive. However, I know nothing with regards to compatibility etc and am hoping you can help. I don't have HD capability yet so that is not an issue. I simply need some help in selection. I had my eye on the Panny E85 but have read about some issues in its guide. If someone else has the same setup as I and can recommend, it would be appreciated. Thanks ahead of time.
