You can also record a program and watch and pause the same program (chase play) whilst it is still recording.

Go for one with a hard drive, I have a Pioneer DVR-420H. It has a built-in tuner.

I've got a JVC DR-MH30 160 HDD.

I find it to be excellent

I have a Panasonic DMR-EH60DEB
Easy to record to HD and play back from the beginning if I wasn't there at the programme start.
Not sure if you can do the same with DVD. My outfit will burn a DVD from a programme first saved on the HD, but will not transfer a DVD contents to its HD (Probably copywrite safety)

A recorder compatible with RAM disc is needed to be able to watch while still recording.
