Are there any reasonably priced DVD recorders with component input
(preferably with digital audio input too), and without a built-in hard
drive?  Having a built-in VCR would be a plus.

I don't think you'll ever see DVD recorders with component or digital
audio inputs, due to the MPAA and other organizations worried about
piracy.

Well, I saw one at Target the other day; I don't recall the brand,
though.  But I don't trust any electronics product sold at Target,
K-mart, Wal-mart, Costco, etc.; they're usually at or near the bottom of
the line models or brands.

I did a quick search and there are plenty of name brands at around $200.
(I checked circuit city and I'm sure all of the other stores have them
too.)

I agree with Brad as none of the ones I looked at had digital or
component inputs.

I have since seen a post at AVS Forum that says Sony does have a DVD
recorder that has component inputs. The model number was not mentioned.

So how is a Sony/Pioneer/Toshiba sold at Walmart/Target/K-mart differ from
the exact brand & model sold at Best Buy or Circuit City?

Same products, just different model numbers (in the case of the
Pioneers0

I didn't say that I don't buy from those stores; I don't buy products
sold at those stores, which means that any model they sell, I wouldn't
buy elsewhere.
