With all the manufactor's selling stand-alone dvd recorders: but: none having the ability to record in dolby digital format. Seems like we (the public) are missing one of the higher points of recording to a dvd format without it. Even tv shows (broadcast,cable,satellite) have dolby digital sound but yet these recorder's do not. Until manufactor's come up with and come out with recorder's that can record dolby digital formats, what is the use and need for dvd recorder's??
