Where do you get your HD service? Your Cable or Sat. company will have the best product for your service. If you are using antenna only, then look at the HDD recorders.
From the title you can probably tell I'm a novice. I am wanting to get back up to speed with current technology and replace my existing home entertainment gear (about 12 years old) with (I think) a new HDD DVD recorder and eventually a big high def TV & new home theatre system. I like the look of the Pioneer DVR745H or the DVR645H as they can handle all of my digital photos and music and play them back through a jukebox etc. I'm told though it doesn't have a digital tuner, but I don't really know if I need a digital tuner?? I'm also totally confused about connectivity, HDMI, DVI and the countless other abbreviations that less tech savy people like me don't understand. I'm told that PVR's have digital tuners (some with twin tuners) but can they do all the other stuff that the HDD recorder can do (ie music jukebox, photos, play & burn DVD's etc??)
Any help appreciated
