I've been using a Panasonic HS-2 dvd recorder to burn my dv camcorder footage instead of my computer. My question is, how much footage can you burn onto a blank dvd at the highest quality possible; 1hour?, 30 minutes?, 20 minutes?, and is the footage of high quality as the original? On my Panasonic deck I can burn 1 hour of footage at what they call the highest quality setting, which is the "xp" speed. The deck has slower speeds of recording but the quality goes down from there. The footage I've burned at the xp speed is pretty much identical to the original, in my opinion. I know that you can do a whole lot more with the computer, but I was wondering if anyone else uses a Panasonic deck like me. Thanks, Tunes Man.
