Hi Gang:

Is there a digital, maybe a hard disc based recorder, that can be used as a VCR replacement? I am looking for something that does not require a subscription and is as easy or easier to use than a VCR for my mum. She is using basic cable.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you, Glenn

The closest device nowadays would be a low cost DVD recorder with a cable-ready tuner, they replaced VCRs.

Seeing that you're in Canada, there are a few HDD/DVD recorders with hard drives and NTSC tuners that you can get up there. The Pioneers are considered the best. Sony makes a model which is actually made by Pioneer and is a lot cheaper.

In the US there are the Philips 3576H and the Magnavox H2160, which both have NTSC/ATSC/QAM tuners. I believe they sell the Philips up there, also (at least they did the 3575H, I think). Check out the "DVD Recorders" forum here for more info.
