Just noticed '... copies up to 48 hours faster then real time'. :-)

It's Made in England, and the Operating Instructions (128 pages) are only in English.

Looks attractive offer. Can a separate DVD/HDD like this be used with (say) a 19" TFT monitor as a second TV set-up?

I know viewing + recording would not run different programmes, but is there a greater problem?

The DVD has Scart, standard audio/video cable output (supplied cable) and S-video output. So if the monitor has any of these inputs, you're cooking.

Correction, the hard drive is 80GB.

Graham ®: Thankyou, and costwise it looks attractive. As a second TV I wonder why I've not read anywhere of such option.

I'll feedback if I proceed, but it will be a week or two. Meanwhile I'd like to read any further thoughts about this DVD/HDD recorder and TFT monitor set-up.

Thanks again. W

40GB isnt alot for a DVD HDD recorder. Perhaps thats why the price is what it is.
