Thank you FullOnShred.
I have been wondering, to myself...never posted anything about it, whether or not any of these big companies (Philips, Sony, Panasonic, Pioneer, Toshiba, etc...) do come in here and look at what all of us would like in a unit and then make one that does exactly just that.
Don't they realize how successful it would be if they made sure it had all the connections people wanted, features, video quality, 16x9 recording, preset and variable recording speeds, etc... The list could go on and on and if one company (lets say Philips does it with their 3575) made a unit based on reading from this, and I am sure many other forums, they would have the ability to corner the market like Microsoft has with computer Operating Systems.
Even for no other reason but greed and wanting to make money, it's beyond me that companies don't come in here, just like FullOnShred suggested, and make us all a "master" machine...if you will.
Here is a unique question to ask everyone who posts in here.
What would you pay for a DVD Recorder that has EVERYTHING you would want in features, quality, etc.? You name it, and it's got it, bar none. How much? $300, $400, $500, $600? Suppose another perk was that the unit never failed you and became future reliable with infinite firmware updates. Just contact the company and say I would like for my unit to have this new feature and presto, they direct you to a web site, you download the update, install it, and it works perfectly.
Don't they realize how many of them they would sell if they did such a thing, and the only thing that hurts more than the fact that they don't is that in all likeliness they very well COULD make a machine that was great, and they don't.
