I bought the Panasonic DMR-HS2 last year to tape the Olympics and never looked back since, it replaces the VCR completely plus gives more than ever imagined.
Easy, it plugs to TV via a scart then you stick the Sky box. With 4 av ports, I use it with Sky and VCR, It might be a bit spaghetti incident behind the tv stand but that's what you get with many boxes.

I have acquired one of these new Panasonic DMR-HS2 DVD Recorders because of what they are capabe of. Being able to record my old vids and sat programmes onto a hard drive, then down to a dvd-r disc is great news.
sure, there are many areas in which this player could be improved but it just reminds me of the first video recorders and what they meant to me when they first come out.
expect to pay at least 500 squid for a mutli-region player right now. (read more)

Okay, first things first...why did I buy this machine?
In short I wanted a DVD recorder for several reasons, mainly:

A very good but expensive way to put the VHS away.
that's what I awaited for a long day.
40GB Harddisk is enough to put a lot of things on it. Whatever I want to have in future, writing DVD-Ram or when collegues want to watch it too put it on DVD-R.
JUST GREAT! (read more)

This machine Panasonic DMR-HS2 has a HDD and DVD drive/recorder built in.
The recording sequence is to record your information to the HDD and if required burn it to the DVD disc.
Works great from free to air information but the above sequence does NOT work when recording from DVD movies because of the built in Macrovision protection. This short fall makes it one very expensive machine to record TV shows. (read more)
