Awhile ago I was considering buying a Tivo/DVD recorder and was contemplating the Pioneer 810H. I cannot find that this model is still made by Pioneer, am I incorrect?

If not, what would be recommended as a comparable replacement? Fast TIVO to DVD burning time is a factor for me.

Thanks in advance!

I've been using it stock and had no problems with it, except for the sound occasionally not outputting, and it not outputting correctly on coax. However, I did get a display model.

As for the space issue, before TTG, I just burned to DVD shows that I didn't have time to watch atm. Worked great for when I had to travel for work. Now I mostly archive them to the 200G drive I have on my comp, but that's getting full, so I'm having to decide wether to watch more or start burning dvd's again.

Question:

I love my 810H, but find the picture to be less than great--especially on a 60" display... consequently I have to record everything on the highest quality setting, which only gives me about 14 hours of record time. I know that there was a class action suit about the picture quality, but am not sure about the outcome...

Does anyone know the scoop on if the Toshiba or Humax has better record quality?

I have the toshiba but kept my Pioneer hooked up to my larger TV so I can not comment... I suggest using caliberation software to clean up your Picture...... I used Video Essentials with my 810H and it helped.

Another good calibration DVD is Avia Guide to Home Theater. I'd post a link, but since this is my first post, it won't let me make links. You can look it up on Amazon.

I recently bought an 810H used, and I'm wondering about upgrading the hard drive. If I decide to do that, will I be able to do so with the instructions written by Hinsdale?

Thanks
