I have a Philips dvdr 1000 that I took in for repair to a philips repair shop on 11/20/2004, they called me in december and said that they couldn't repair the dvdr 1000. Since it was under warranty, philips would repalce the unit. On 12/31/2004 the repair center called me and said that philips would repalce it with a dvd740vr!!! Question, I think the dvd740vr is like a tivo kind of unit and its not really what I would call a dvdr unit, should I tell them to put the dvd740vr where the shine don't shine and hold off for a regular dvdr unit like the dvdr 615 etc? I already have a direct tv/tivo unit and I was using that to record to my dvdr 1000 (which I loved!!!). Thanks in advance to any advice.
