Default Oh search masters, if you please...

I am helping a friend look for a new dvd recorder. she also wants built in dvr, with the ability to rip and burn mp3 files. in my searches online, i have only been able to find one, and that was at walmart online for about $188, but it does not advertise mp3 compatability. so i figure i might as well ask you guys, a bunch of bums <and some geeks even> what is out there? must be dvd recorder, mp3 compatable, built in dvr, and maybe topped off with a built in vcr <if you find one great, if not, dont worry>.

btw, lets try and keep everything in the "reasonable" price range if we could please?

Nothing 'Factory' will have built in mp3 ripping period. Just about all of them will play mp3'* though.

But if she doesn't have cable you might want to go with something that has a digital tuner instead of analog; or something that has both.

Sounds like you're better off with a multi-media PC. That way you could do all that, with a TV Tuner card, and probably for a reqsonable price if that'* all you do with it.

I did a quick search for DVRs, and didn't find anything "reasonable". Looks like DVRs only come with subscription services (Cable, TiVo, etc)

Look for dvd records with built in hard drives, since they do more that just video many manufacturers don't call it a dvr.
