I now own a Digital Radio and a DVD Recorder with Hard Drive (a Panasonic thingy). The cheap digital radio came from a Dixons (spit) sale. The DVD-R came from a lot of argy bargy with Richer Sounds, who are lovely people, and terribly patient with people like me who always feel like they're making A Terrible Mistake whenever they buy hifi equipment.
I can work the Digital Radio, and am now old enough to enjoy 6Music.
The DVD-R demands more work. And probably a five year old. I've read the manual cover to cover twice. And I'm still baffled.
