I love this DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder. I will never go back to just a DVD Recorder. With this hard drive, you can record your tv shows, movies, etc with just a click of a button. You can go back to the beginning of the show and start from there. Sure, I know that the satellite companies and cable companies have DVR's that do the same thing - but this is a one time expense and you do not have to pay a monthly fee. GREAT IDEA!!!!
