So, I was flipping through my winter 2002 Tweeter catalog when I noticed they had 2 DVD recorders listed. 1) Panasonic DVD-RAM/DVD-R Recorder $999 2) Pioneer Elite DVD-R/RW Recorder $1799 Does anyone have any experience with either/both of these? The Pioneer one is a progressive scan player and the panasonic one doesn't seem to be as far as I know, pioneer's also has RW capability so you can rerecord. So, what I'm wondering.. is how do these work? Is it just like a VCR, only it's DVD? Like, you just pop in a blank dvd, hit record and save the simpsons to watch later on? Or, do you have to record to an internal hard drive then burn the dvd? Basically, is this going to finally be the VCR replacement I've always wanted DVDs to be, where it does everything good a VCR can do, but it's the supercool quality of a DVD? That's really what I am looking for Now also, if I could afford either one, which one would I be better off with? Also, do these support recording in HDTV and DD5.1?
