Hi, I didn't see it so i will ask. I am looking for a good new dvd recorder and I found one that says it has a digital tuner, but on the back it doesn't have a HDMI connection. From what I have heard you can get HD off the air antenna but if you have cable or Sat. it isn't a requirement! now about that dvd recorder..Is it really Hd or ?

Hmmm. I too, have a DVD/VHS recorder. It has a digital tuner and outputs S-Vid and/or the red-white-yellow. Could this be the answer to my RV needs?

Maybe someone else with more knowledge can pipe in, but my understanding is there's only two HD DVD recorder/players. One is Sony's Blueray and the other is Toshiba's HD unit. Supposedly they are not compatible with each other, similar to the old VHS and Beta days of tape recorder/players. So, at present if you buy start buying Blueray HD DVD's then later this is beat out with the other technology then your DVD's won't work. And if one or the other technology loses to the other anything that was recorded on the losing format will also be lost.

In any case I'd check this out thoroughly before making a purchase.

Bob, I think I remember seeing on the TV news that Sony Blue Ray technology for HD DVD has won out over Toshibas method of HD DVD. I believe it was stated that Toshiba was getting out of the race or competition, if you will with Sony.

HD has died, Blue Ray won out, Sony did not want another Beta defeat, like they had years ago. They lobbied hard to make this format standard and won. I waited to see who won before I bought mine. Regular DVD's are sharper too when played on the hi def players.

Since we can't seem to get back on topic, and this was supposed to be an HDTV discussion let me clarify that HD has NOT died. The HD-DVD format has died for DVD player/recorders and is being replaced with the BlueRay format. This has nothing at all to do with the topic being discussed in this topic which has to do with the upcoming change from analog TV broadcast to digital TV broadcast.

To answer your question "Free Tv" has never been free, you pay for it every time you buy a product that is advertised on it. It is sponsored by the advertisers, which in turn the cost is passed on to us in the cost of goods, This dead horse has been beaten enough now.
