We bought a Lite-on LVW-5026 HDD+DVD Recorder from Argos for £199.99 a couple of weeks ago on the recommendation of a friend who uses their kit professionally. So far, well pleased with it.

Hi ya Pete, you've been a bit quite lately? Still doing patrols?

I bought a Mico one from Sainsbury last year for about 90 quid & have had no problems with it, it is easy to drive & program.

The only problem is that is will not record on any of the 500 -R DVDs I bought by mistake for work.

I looked into DVD recorders a llittle while back to use with a Sky digibox. Panasonic (& others) have an 'Ext Link' function which enables quick 'one touch' recording of sky programmes , using the EPG. I decided to go for a Sky+ box instead, for simplicity and flexibility, but if you're looking to record digital sky broadcasts on a non-premium sky package, the Panasonic may be the way to go. For analogue recording, I'm not sure if it will be any simpler than the budget DVD recorders from Argos, Tesco, etc., but recording quality may be better.
