    I'm sure this is in the manual somewhere, but I can't find it!

    I want to create a DVD-R from a movie on the HDD, but it is bigger than the available space. I though I had read somewhere that there is a a setting which would reduce the quality just enough to make it fit. Where is the option or did I imagine it?

    Thanls

    Go to rate conversion dubbing, when in this menu, press quick menu and select auto rate selection. P 113 of the manual states
    Auto rate selection:
    The recorder automatically selects the highest possible
    rate, calculating from current unoccupied volume on the
    disc. (This operation does not insure full recording of any
    length program or whole use of unoccupied volume.)

    In practice though, I've found that using a rate of much less than 4.0 results in a very soft picture which I found unacceptable. This translates into a time of about 2h10m, so any movies longer than that are better split onto two DVDs, so my practice now (having generated a few coasters :)) is to split all movies over 2hrs long. Bit of a pain when watching, yes, but better than 2.5hrs of fuzzy picture.

    Thanks for this. Pardon my ignorance, but is 'dubbing' the same as 'Creating a DVD-Video' ?

    I'm normally really good at this type of thng but I have hit a bad spot!

    no

    creating a dvd-video can only be done to -r. This process will automatically finalise the disc.

    dubbing can be doen to -r / -rw / -ram all of which remain editable after dubbing. Albeit the editing on -r is rather limited.

    Yes, you can't create chapters on a DVD-R/RW.

    -r can only be dubbed back to the HDD if left unfinalised. I think.

    Not sure what you mean about the chapters on -r/-rw. Of course you can but obviously before finalisation.

    Hmm, I find I can't make chapters once recorded to DVD-R/RW. Probably because I usually record in DVD mode rather than VR.

    not sure, this is something you are more likely to do on the hdd anyway.
