Yay, it another new forum, and more hi fi, i love it. But the question I am going to ask is does everyone think like me that it's just to early to buy a DVR? The biggest issue is the format wars, as well as recording formats that just aren't up to scratch up. dvd-rw is just awful for DVR with finalising time too long (amongst other probs) dvd+RW is a little better, but still cumbersome. DVD-vr (different format on dvd-rw discs)is definitly an improvement on both with is varible bit rate recording but finalisation is a mess. but the overidding prob. with both formats is lack of space, if you go over 2 hrs of recording , the quality generally just sucks(especially on big, high res tellys) Overall dvd-ram is the best choice of the moment, but is dying a slow death as format, the DVR recording is the only thing keeping it afloat. What do you think, is it better waiting till HD-dvd or blu ray DVR hit the market, or will a new standard on the old formats win out? if we could just have something like dvd-ram that was compatible in most players and was alot cheaper we'd be right.
