If you are connected to a Tivo, and are only using the line inputs for recording, no antenna input to the DVD recorder, then there would no difference between rocording on an EH59/69 or the 515. These machines have line inputs, and tuners. The Panasonic machines have tuners, but they are not set up for North American TV signals. If you are not using the tuner in your DVD recorder (like I am not, or at least was not until DirecTV temporarily turned off one of my channels) then the Panasonics will work just fine for you.
Allowing for the oddities of these machines, which have been expressed in this forum many times. A search will bring these up.
Evil is charming and beautiful. It makes you doubt yourself. It asks for one small compromise after another until it whittles you down, and it functions best when no one believes in it.-JOA
