I'm starting to see ads for this unit, which if you are also somewhat out of this loop as am I has an 80 G HD and Tivo service. I know nothing about Pioneer recorders (and more than I want to know about TIvo) but this to me is a positive step, possibly a milestone (PVR and DVD recorder in one box, that is) and hopefully the spark to a welcome trend.
Now if the bit-bucket PVR's begin adding DVD recorder transports we might just have something.:)
There's no place like 127.0.0.1
