Thoroughly reccomended. Am very pleased with the picture quality. I feed all my boxes through it to the TV at 1080i. I know that there are views that the TV rescales to native, so the 1080i output is not required. I do however find that the picture quality is better that way. IMHO anyway.
Have a search for that recorder ihn the above and you will get plenty of information.
There are some quirks on recording to HDD and to DVD-R. It appears to record in 4:3 only. But in fact squashes the recording so that 16:9 output is correct. But will output correct ratio if you select the aspect ration on your TV.
If you have more specific questions please ask.
