I have a Relisys RDVR250D - it works fine and the recordings it makes play back fine in the Relisys itself. I can't though play them on a stand-alone DVD player I had before. I use Verbatim DVD+RWs and DVD+Rs. The disks are recognised and I might see the menu screen but when they start to play they hang. The disks sometimes play on a PC. I can make recordings that I can play on my stand alone player but it's quite a job. I import to my PC using the DVDdecrypter program, then demux with PVAstrumento (usually finds and fixes quite a number of MPEG errors), then Cuttermaran to edit. Finally DVDLab and Nero to burn a new DVD+R which plays fine everywhere. This procedure is OK for footage you want to keep (eg my own DV footage) but too laborious for "everyday" recordings. Is this kind of experience "normal" with DVD recorders, or peculiar to my Relisys?
