seems a bit pricy to me - -you can almost get a PC with tv card, 80gb hard drive and dvd writer for that - - -

This machine with similar items was given a short writeup and illustration in "Computeractive" Mag page 74 issue 138. They quoted the price as £700 so cheaper than expected. The specification is impressive. Believe there is a new one out in Japan with a 160GB disk. This can pause live TV and also store up to 78 hours of video in LP mode. Shame it will only record DVD-RAM and DVD-R (not +R). Would make a replacement for the DVD player under the TV. I intend buying this or something similar but would like a report first from a user.
