    Hey all,

    I know this isn't exactly a DirecTV question but since I'm looking to hook it up to my HD-DVR I figure someone here might know a thing or two.

    I recently had a DVD-R go belly up on me and I'm in the market for a new recorder.

    In the reading I've been doing today I'm seeing a lot of incompatibility with newer DVD recorders and digital receivers. Most of the complaints I'm seeing is the DVD Recorders not recording shows because of Copyright Protection on the program.

    I'm looking to hook up a DVD Recorder to my HR-21 via the S-Video connection. (Be nice if you could get a RGB hookup even if DVD-R's don't record anything but 480i signals...) But I certainly don't want issues with my DVD Recorder telling me I'm not allowed to record a program that I've already recorded on my HR-21.

    If anyone has a suggestion for a new recorder, please let me know. I don't care about supported formats so much... I don't really need dual-layer either, but it's not a limiting buying point. It doesn't even have to upscale or have HDMI. I'm fine with using RGB... That's what the PS3 is for!
