Summary: I have owned a Pioneer DVD recorder for 6 years and it worked brilliantly. They I decided to join the HD world since freeview became HD. I thought I should get the BR version of this recoder and I did. The machine is fairly complicated and not intuitive to operate. The main problem with it is that it is tooooooo sloooooooooooooooooooow to operate. It takes almost 25 sec to turn on and let you use the remote to do anything.
Summary: When I received the Blu-ray recorder and set it up, I quickly found that some of the functionality I had read about did not function as I was lead to beleive from the right ups and advertising for the product. There are cheaper on the market that do a better job.
