Another post which included the discussion of antiquated recording media motivated me to ask. I figured there is plenty of expertise on this forum to answer my questions.
It appears that Panasonic is one of the leaders in this area and that I should certainly get one with a digital tuner and upconverter. Not too concerned about HD right now.
For the small difference in price I will probably go with a VCR also. How about a hard drive. Is one brand easier than the other to use.
Any and all opinions appreciated.
