I am a new user here just found the sute and love it, and have a quesetion about which recorder to buy. I have a Comcast DVR and am wanting to get a recorder to move some of the stuff I have on there to DVD. My question is what would be a good recorder to do this. I have been looking at both ones with a hard drive and ones without hard drives. Do I need the hard drive one since the DVR has a hard drive? Would I have to sit there and monitor the transfer if I was to get one without a hard drive? I was looking at the Toshiba XS34 but do not want to buy it if I could just get one without the hard drive. Thanks for any help.
