After many years my $50 Philips region free dvd player (hacked by moi) has given up the ghost. Obviously getting it fixed is not even an option. Since I have to replace it I thought I might as well go with a DVD recorder. Anyone have a preferred model. This Philips has treated me right. Requirements: region/code free naturally, s-video out, preferably will record in all formats but -R will do. I try to avoid off brands. I've seen all the sites, including Amazon, offering the items so I know where to get 'em, I just need to hear from someone who has direct experience, good or bad with this thing about what to get. I found this but the few reviews on it aren't solid: http://www.world-import.com/Philips_DVD-R3390_Region_Free_Pal_Ntsc_DVD_Recorder.htm Hurry now, I have several flicks from the Ealing Studios boxed set on deck.
