All, I am looking for some advise. I am getting ready to purchase a new DVD
recorder with HDD. I have it down to the new Sony RDR HX900 and the
Panasonic DMR E-95HS. Both have similar features. Both have TV Guide as well
as 160GB hdd's.
I have not seen any reviews on the Sony and just one on the Panasonic. Both
cost apporx. $800.
I do not want a Tivo box with a DVD recorder as I do not want to pay for the
monthly fee. This is why I am looking at one with TV Guide.
Thanks in adavance.

Re: dvd recorders
I have a Panasonic E80 with 80gig HD and no TV Guide.  Have been using it
daily for time-shifting TV programs, for over a year.  No problems; love it.
I use the XP setting (10mbps) to record TV shows to the HDD and the
result -- on a 48" diagonal 4:3 TV screen -- looks just like the original
off-the-cable signal.  Actually, SP setting -- half the speed, twice the
recording space -- looks just about as good.  DVD playback excellent.
