DVD Recorder Help

Can anyone explain the hard drive meanings to me please, I guess the bigger the better? but what happen's when hard drive is full do you have to replace it? or can you continue to record
I was looking at a cheap DVDR but it only had 6 hours of recording (thats what the litrature said not sure what it means).
Sorry if this is a stupid question (mine usually are lol)but I want to find out BEFORE I buy not after.

Are you talking about a dvd recorder for your television, or one that you can fit into your computer?

I mean for the television sorry I was not clear on that!

If you are looking at a "cheap" recorder it almost certainly will not have a HDD. the 6 hours will refer to the maximum size of recording on a DVD disk (you should see a number of lengths from 1hour max quality to 6 hours low quality.

Your recording time will only be limited by the number of DVDs that you buy.
