I ordered a nice LCD TV for my parents a couple of weeks ago, and went home last weekend to set it up. The picture quality is very good (hd) plus it has built a built in digi box. Because of this they want to replace their VCR with a DVD recorder. I had a brief look around at DVD recorders and none of the ones I have looked at say anything about built in digital. Surly if we hook a standard DVD recorder up it will only be able to record channels 1-5 as it will only work on the old analogue signals....
My question is, is the above correct? Are most DVD recorders going to be obsolete in a few years when analogue is switched off. And, more importantly, which DVD recorders currently have a built in digital decoder which I can use to record digital stuff?!
