    Nope. This is a limitation to the Panasonic range that may never be corrected. From an archiving perspective it is bad because you can't 'backup' a previous DVD-R. But then if it forces you to keep an original on DVD-RAM then you data is much safer anyway...

    :eek: :blush: Well I stand corrected on that one then! Very glad to hear it as it was a major limitation. I suppose Sony opting to allow DVD-Video dubbing on their RX8/RX10 made Panasonic realise they were making an unnecessary stand. Anyway - that's very good news :smashin:

    Anyone tried this on the Panasonic E85?

    Excellent. Hopefully then this is a standard feature on all new models.

    Hi guys, sorry to hijack this thread but gallese could you please tell me some of the features on the E95, at present i have the E100 but was looking to upgrade does it still have partial erase and high speed dub at any recording mode i.e LP SP..... i tried the JVC DRMH30 but it would'nt allow you to edit on the hard drive you had to meke a playlist then do it from there with bad results that's what i like about the panny it gives you great results on editing out adverts also can you put thumbnails on a finilized dvd? Thanks.

    garry, why not wait 12 months or so for the DVB models, HDMI equipped models?Upgrading from one generation to the immediate next gives a fairly poor return on your money.

    I'm pretty certain that it is a real time dub involving re-encoding, rather like dubbing from the hard drive to a DVD-R in anything over than a high speed dub. So there will always be a slight drop in quality when you dub from a DVD-R to the hard drive.

    yep, it's a real pain in the arse. I have the dmr85. You have to set the legnth of time of the recording you're making, then it's a real time dub. Apart from the slow operation of the unit, this my only gripe with this player.
