Need advice on DVD player

Postby kittybank » Mon Jun 27, 2011 8:20 pm

Need to replace DVD player but am lost with the functionalities like R+ or R- and blu-ray. Only need one that plays DVD and can record TV programmes.

Please advise. Thank you.

If you want to record TV programs, get 1 with HDD inside. Guess Panasonic got a few models. And less hassle with DVD disks..

Most HDD recorder will be able to play and record DVDs too. Panasonic DVD-RAM recorder can play and record simultaneously. Meaning you can watch the beginning of the show while it is still airing and recording, or watch a show while recording another. The DVD-RAM disk will be more expensive thou, but supposingly more lasting.

They work with Starhub cable TV, so no reason they wouldn't work with mio.
