    Philips DVDR5570H review

    An AV centre in disguise’, reads the blurb that accompanies Philips’ latest recorder, and it’s a fitting description. Not only can the DVDR5570H record television programmes on its hard disk, but it also bridges the gap between your PC and TV by storing music, photo and video files, while also playing a wide variety of disc formats.

    Somewhat more run-of-the mill in styling terms than the quirky Philips DVD recorders of old, the DVDR5520 combines DVD recording with 160GB of HDD capacity, a single digital tuner and HDMI upscaling all the way to 1080p.

    With hard-disk recorders now dominating the market, standalone DVD recorders aren't quite as fashionable as they used to be. But the latest deck in Philips' line-up has the enviable distinction of being the slimmest model ever to land on our test bench.

    At just 43mm high, this combi is one of the slimmest on the market and also one of the most attractive, sporting a deliciously moody mirrored fascia and a tasteful red ring that lights up when recording.

    To date, home DVD recorders have only recorded two-channel soundtracks - usually in Dolby Digital 2.0. This is fine for terrestrial TV programmes (analogue or digital) but does a disservice to multichannel movies
