I want to buy a DVD recorder that will copy some old NTSC laser discs. I have a USA Pioneer NTSC Player, so I will be sending out pure NTSC signals. I do not think the discs are protected by macrovision. I have considered the Panasonic range EMR85 in particular, but my only problem here is that if I get rid of my VHS machines (one downstairs & the other upstairs) whenever I record to DVD disc, I will be limited to DVD RAM for re-use, and unless I get a cheaper DVD player that handles RAM discs for upstairs, if I record to DVD -R, then I'll be binning lots of discs once the programme has been watched. In short then, I need a DVD recorder that can record NTSC lasers, and that can record to re-writable discs so that I can play off-air recordings on a DVD player upstairs, and then re-suse the discs. Any ideas folks? Thanks.
