Out of the stone age
Finally got round to getting myself a DVD/HD recorder.
I'd been putting it off because 1) I was out of work for most of last year. 2) was waiting for HD plus inbuilt digital/Freeview to become readily available and affordable.
Anyway, cost me £195 for a Sony recorder.
Got it yesterday and spent most of yesterday evening fiddling with it.
I am well impressed!
Not the simplest thing to operate initially but so much better than video.
I copied a few things I had on video onto the HD.
One of the anoying things about video is you never know what's on the tape where.
HD/DVD is so simple.
Also, I started watching some of the things whilst recording of others was in progress.
Can set programmes to record directly from the digital TV guide.
I realise some of you will have had these for years and years but I finally feel I am out of the stone age.
Won't be sorry to see the back of magnetic tape!
