RDRHXD970-DVD Recorder This recorder is very good it does everything you would want to do,Very satisfied with it. Great brand new, rubbish product Must say that I found this product to a complete let down. First things to be aware of when you buy this product.

Hard drive DVD recorder This is the first digital recorder that I have purchased so cannot compare it to other products. However.

Good machine I bought it about a half a year ago and overall am pretty happy with my purchase. It is doing its job almost perfectly.

I was looking to buy a HDD recorder for a while. After reading some reviews and visiting my local shop. This was a replacement for a Panasonic DHR95H. I have just purchased this product, one day ive had it, and when i went to record something, you have to watch what you are recording.

I have had this Sony RDRHXD970 DVD recorder for a couple of months now and quite frankly I wish I had never bought it !...
Yellow 4:11am on Wednesday, March 31st, 2010 
Easy to set up and use. No twin tuner If you have recorded to the hard drive and you start viewing the recording.

The Sony is very good at what it does and is very straightforward to use, the picture and sound quality is good.

Some playback operations of DVD VIDEOs/ VIDEO CDs may be intentionally set by software producers. Since this recorder plays DVD VIDEOs/VIDEO CDs according to the disc contents the software producers designed, some playback features may not be available. Also, see the instructions supplied with the DVD VIDEOs/ VIDEO CDs.
Some DVD+RWs/DVD+Rs, DVD-RWs/DVD-Rs, or CD-RWs/CD-Rs cannot be played on this recorder due to the recording quality or physical condition of the disc, or the characteristics of the recording device and authoring software. The disc will not play if it has not been correctly finalized. For more information, see the operating instructions for the recording device. You cannot mix VR mode and Video mode on the same DVD-RW. To change the discs format, reformat the disc (page 43). Note that the discs contents will be erased after reformatting. You cannot shorten the time required for recording even with high-speed discs. Also, you cannot record on the disc if the disc is not 1x speed compatible. It is recommended that you use discs with For Video printed on their packaging. You cannot add new recordings to DVD-Rs or DVDRWs (Video mode) that contain recordings made on other DVD equipment. In some cases, you may not be able to add new recordings to DVD+RWs that contain recordings made on other DVD equipment. If you do add a new recording, note that this recorder will rewrite the DVD menu. If the disc contains PC data unrecognizable by this recorder, the data may be erased.
