Right. Say I want to record the Component HD input from my XBOX 360 via a Panasonic DVD Recorder that I speculatively own. Do I need a component splitter (so that the signal can be split two ways; TV-Xbox360 and TV-DVD Recorder? I assume I do... Then the real question is...does the DVD recorder only record 'what it sees' ie the channel I'm watching. Or would I be able to select a channel/input to record while being on a another (eg record HDMI while watching TV). What I mean is...will it work :tongue:. These Panasonic DVD Recorders aren't cheap.
