At present I own a Toshiba DVD player that has a time shift function. This I find invaluable, as it has a 2 hour buffer, so as soon as I turn the machine on it starts recording to the hard drive, if I then pause, I can pause for up to 2 hours, and then either play or rewind back to the begginning of whatever I was pausing.
My dilema? It has started becoming unreliable, so I am looking to upgrade. I am after a machine with the following: Dvd player, hard drive recorder, EPG(if EPG via internet, then ethernet or wireless connection), timeshift recording, recording buffer of at least 2 hours. I have looked at media pc's but Windows Media 2005 only seems to have a1/2 hour buffer. Can this be extended?
Am I asking too much? I have been looking around and have recently bought a Kiss DP 558, but that seems not to have any recording buffer at all. Am i wrong? So that may have to go back.
