I really like the Panasonic DMR-E80H and it's capabilities. I've been wanting TIVO like technology (HDD recording) for quite some time now, but living in Canada no such thing has ever been available, at least in the area I live. I would also like to get Shaw Digital Cable which would come through a Motorola DCT2000 tuner, but the problem has always been how to get a recording device to control the cable box. Are there any DVD/HDD recorders out there similar to the Panasonic which have IR cable box control abilities? Thanks in advance!
