I purchased a Sony RDR-GX315 today from Circuit City and haven't opened the box yet. The two factors that sold me on this are (1) it handles +RW, +R, -RW and -R, and (2) the price was $249.00, with a mail-in rebate of $50.00 making it $199.00. Now I've found a couple of reviews on cnet from users who say that this won't record from their DVRs, which seems bizarre to say the least; on the other hand there's a review there from someone who says that it records from his DVR without a problem. I have cable reception and DVR from Adelphia. The DVR box (from Scientific Atlanta) is an Explorer 8300HD and I've been in love with it for a long time. I don't have a High Definition TV. My old DVD recorder, a Panasonic DMRE30S, worked like a dream recording from the DVR, and why shouldn't it have? Why shouldn't any recorder? Am I in trouble here, or am I okay? Any advice, thoughts, tips, leads, links or money is much appreciated (particularly if you can dumb it down for a technophobe). Thanks!
