    Hi
    After spending some time trying to copy a DVD to the HD on my Panny HS2, I have come to the conclusion that the HS2 won't do it, is this correct??.

    That is correct. Panasonic have a very strict policy about copying and thus none of their recorders will dub from DVD to the HDD (unless copying from DVD-RAM).

    You can apparently connect a scart from av1 to av2 and record that way, using the rf out to the tv to check what you are doing. This will only work for region free dvd's. Presumably if you have a macrovision lead that would allow protected dvd's to be copied in this way

    however, i don't really see the point. If you want to copy a dvd you can buy a dvd writer with all the necessary software very cheaply. This would make a near identical copy kepping all menus and digital sound.

    Personally I would rather own the original
