Sounds like a plan to me! Unfortunately, the one thing the DVDR doesn't do is let you start to watch something before it's finished recording. It's no big thing, though.
I only have the 1 RW disc. more than enough, and its very rare that I need it. only when tivo can't record from two channels at once.
Luckily (especially as I don't drive) this shop is in the centre of the city, right outside my bus stop
your even luckier, I don't have a bus stop, nearest is over a mile away.
have some material on Video that I want to transfer to DVD+R. I also want to be able to transfer from Tivo to DVD+R/+RW without having to swap leads around, etc.
This is why I had intended to put my DVDR where my VCR is now (in the Tivo's VCR SCART) and then put the VCR on the second SCART socket on the DVDR.
if the DVDR is between the tivo and tv, you can still record onto the dvdr from tivo, and vcr, but unfortuantely not watch something from tivo at the same time.
only way around this, and I haven't done it yet, is to get a scart to phono lead, and connect the vcr to the phonos on the front of the dvdr.
