Mabuttra and Rammitinski, yes that is exactly where I am coming from.
Mark you hit the nail on the head. I would like to add two more recording channels in my set up for a total of "three". And you have really answered my questions regarding the quality I am used to in the Sony. That is extremely hard to give up. After reading all the post(s) this morning I am inclined to just get another Sony, which only gives me "one" more tuner.
You wouldn't happen to have (or anybody), the DVR hook-up to a 1080p panel with pixel mapping would you? Like a Panasonic with HD-Size 2 option or any other panel that provides for pixel mapping on a 1080i source? If it cannot match the Sony on that feature, then I will not consider it any further. I already know it messes around with the 720 source which I do not like, because we do record a lot of FOX stuff and some ABC stuff.
