DVD Recorder

Yee-haa. I am now the proud owner of a DVD HDD Recorder. It's made by LG and is an RH7500 with an 80b disk drive for recording TV programs and doing that clever tine-slip thing where you can record live TV, and pause it and watch it again and stuff. Exciting. Maybe now I'll also finally get round to putting all my home video on DVD - it should be much simpler than the pain I've had on my PC trying to do it. Will post back my conclusions once my 14 day trial is over and I've decied whether to keep it or take it back to the shop, Richer Sounds.


This DVD recorder definitely goes in my list of best buys ever. It does everything it claimed to do, has recorder faultlessly and played back everything I've thrown at it. It records from Camcorder vie Firewire and I can back this up to DVD. I can record a whole TV series on it's large harddrive.

The ultimate test was this weekend. I downloaded a .AVI file off the internet that I wanted to watch. I even had some problems with my PC and had to download a new CODEC to get Windows to play the file. Then I couldn't make it into a movie DVD because I had no AVI -> MPEG converter, and no time to search for one. So I just copied the file natively to a data DVD-R disk. I'm not even sure why I tried the disk in the LG player, as I was convinced it wouldn't work, and I had left the remote control in another house as an added complication. But it 'just worked'. Excellent player.
