Combi deck with HDMI and auto series recording via Freeview
BDigital TV, HDMI output, Series Recording feature, picture ESingle Freeview tuner, inflexible with some disc formats
THERE HAS OFTEN been a tradeoff in features for the price when it comes to recording digital TV. You can opt for subscription-based recorders such as Sky+ or TV Drive with sophisticated features but ongoing costs. However, Sonys RDR-HXD860 is one of the rst recorders to embrace Freeviews next phase by adopting the Series Recording feature. This combined hard-drive/DVD recorder is smart looking too and provides the regular functions youd expect in a digital recorder, such as simultaneous playback and recording. DVD and handy for DV camcorder users (connected via an i.Link port). For TV recording, there is a builtin Freeview tuner and onscreen programme guide. Bear in mind that there is only one tuner, so you cant watch or record another channel while recording another. It also lacks an analogue tuner, so make sure your reception is strong for all digital channels. The video output has been improved with the addition of an HDMI port and upscaling to HDTVlike resolutions of 720p or /// 1080i. There are also analogue video Scarts for RGB or S-video in and out, as well as component video at up to 625p. This model can record directly to DVD or transfer from its hard drive, where you can edit before archiving to disc. It works best with DVD-R and DVD-RW, though it will accept DVD+R and +RW with some restrictions. It also takes double layered DVD+R but not DVD-R DL, and while it plays DVD-RAM discs, it wont write on them. Lastly, DiVX and XviD compressed video playback has been added, but not with anamorphic 16:9 support.
Ease of use
Overall, this is a simple machine to get on with. The remote control is arranged clearly but some operations are sluggish, especially when navigating the recording library or formatting DVD+RWs. The Freeview guide is fast and easy, offering plenty of shortcuts for jumping to other channels or days. The recorders best aspect is the new Series Recording feature, which is Freeviews version of Series Link on Sky+, meaning that all episodes

of a series can be automatically recorded, even if they arent in xed time slots. It can even capture split events such as lms divided by news bulletins. The series info option is also good for detailing any imminent repeats in case of schedule clashes. It is only running on BBC channels right now, but Series Recording will no doubt spread to other channels soon.
The RDR-HXD860 offers hard-drive capacity of 160GB, allowing between 20 and a whopping 249 hours of storage across nine pre-set recording quality modes, though its best to stick to the higher quality modes, meaning about 77 hours at most. The top HQ+ option records at 15Mbps, which is better than

There are plenty of no-nonsense editing functions for tidying up hard-drive (or rewritable DVD) recordings, including partial erase, dividing and playlist compilation. Unlike Pioneers recorders, you cannot edit or dub recordings while making a new one and there are other confusing limitations. For example, high-speed dubbing is not available to DVD+R/RW from a 16:9 widescreen recording, or recordings made in EP or SLP settings. Anamorphic widescreen programmes recorded directly to DVD+R/RW are ne, but if dubbed from hard disk to DVD+R/RW they are converted into inferior 4:3 mode that adds letterbox stripes. In contrast, DVD-R/RW discs seem unaffected across various recording and dubbing modes.
recordings remain much the same and clean overall. The ESP mode (93 hours on hard drive or 3 hours on standard DVD) is still bright and colourful when needed, but edges are less sharp and fast movement shows some break-up. As you move down to the LP, EP and SLP settings, the image gets less distinct again, along with more break-up. For putting longer programmes at better qualities onto disc, you can almost double DVD capacity with DVD+R DL, but with limits on 16:9 recording as explained earlier.

The RDR-HXD860s audio performance is above average for a machine whose primary task is to be a multipurpose recorder and player. Surround effects are conveyed clearly and vocals are rarely dull, though they can be somewhat harsh, and the machines overall sound is not in the same league as standalone mid-range DVD players. CD playback, too, is adequate and will sound okay for a range of discs, from the meaty Muse to mellow Midlake, for example, but it lacks renement. Although it boasts videophile picture quality, audiophiles should keep their favourite disc player on hand.
The HDMI digital output certainly takes picture quality to another level. Scaled up to 1080i mode, detail is vivid without appearing articial. Its not up to HDTV or Blu-ray levels, but it delivers an exceptional performance from pre-recorded DVD as well as giving Freeview a boost. Colours are vibrant too especially in a slick and shiny CGI animation such as Pixars Cars and in non-digital movies it keeps grain and other image noise under control. Contrast remains punchy, subtle shades are smooth with very few contouring side effects and motion is beautifully smooth. For its own recordings, the image is particularly strong in the top ve modes (HQ+, HQ, HSP, SP and LSP). If the original Freeview broadcast is acceptable, then the
For 400 the picture and build quality are enough to recommend it. You can get some better features in other recorders, though. However, its admirable that Sony has put Series Recording into its range already, leaving many comparable brands behind. For picture quality its near-perfect, but the product does have niggling drawbacks Z

b Notes Dubbing (HDD y DVD)
You cannot make a recording while dubbing. To play a dubbed disc on other DVD equipment, finalise the disc (page 34). You cannot dub from DVD VIDEOs to the HDD. Thumbnails that you have set for the originally recorded title (page 28) will not be retained in the dubbed title. When dubbing to a DVD+R DL disc, the video may be momentarily interrupted at the point where the layers switch.
In this section, dubbing refers to copying a recorded title on the internal hard disk drive (HDD) to another disc, or vice versa. You can select to dub one title at a time (Title Dubbing see Dubbing a single title (Title Dubbing) on page 81), or multiple titles all at once (Multiple Title Dubbing see Dubbing multiple titles (Dub Selected Titles) on page 82). Before you start, read the following precautions, which are common to both dubbing methods. If you want to record from a digital video camera connected to the DV IN jack, see DV Dubbing on page 84. To record from equipment connected to the LINE IN jacks, see Recording from connected equipment without a timer on page 58.
About Dub Mode
With this recorder, the recording mode for dubbing is displayed as Dub Mode. Three dubbing methods are available: High-speed Dubbing, Original Dubbing, and Rec Mode Conversion Dubbing. Read the following and select according to the required time, disc space, and picture quality.
Dubbing at high-speed (High-speed Dubbing) HDD , +RW / -RWVR / -RWVideo / / -RVR / -RVideo +R
Allows you to dub what you have stored in the HDD to a high-speed DVD (8x-speed DVD+RWs/6x-speed DVD-RWs/16x-speed DVD+Rs/16x-speed DVD-Rs, or slower versions of each disc type), without changing the recording mode. Set Dub Mode to Fast in the steps of Dubbing a single title (Title Dubbing) (page 81) or Dubbing multiple titles (Dub Selected Titles) (page 82). When dubbing multiple titles, you can select Fast if there are one or more titles that can be dubbed at high speed in the selected titles. However, titles that cannot be dubbed at high speed are dubbed in the Original Dubbing mode. The minimum required time is as follows (approximate).
Before you start
You cannot record both the main and sub sound on DVD+RWs, DVD-RWs (Video mode), DVD+Rs, or DVD-Rs (Video mode). For bilingual programmes, set Bilingual Recording of DVD Rec. Settings to either Main (default) or Sub in the Recording setup (page 100). The chapter marks in the dubbing source are not retained in the dubbed title. When Auto Chapter is set to On in the Recording setup (page 101), chapter marks are automatically inserted at approximately 6 minute intervals.
z Hints When you dub a Playlist title, it is recorded as an Original title. When dubbed from a DVD to the HDD, the picture size and the sound types originally recorded are retained.
