jOHN, LONDON Home cinema enthusiast

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Very comprehensive allowing copying and playback of HD, DVD & VCR.
Bad points:
limited set up options, e.g. I can't find a way to switch off the SCART fuction so that whenever the machine starts up for recording etc it changes the tv input that you are watching. VERY IRRITATING.
