My Sony recorders (GX3 and GX300) don't. Is this a limitiation of the format or of the recorders?
Not a deficiency in the <plus> format.
You can correct the aspect ratio by editing the IFO file, though.
Edit: why are you recording in <plus> format on these Sony recorders, when the editing facilities are so much better in the <minus> domain?
I don't do editing, but the plus format doesn't require finalisation and those were the disks I happened to have.
The manuals specifically state that 16:9 is not supported using plus disks.
OK I see about not editing.
16:9 is perfectly acceptable within the +RW format specifications, but whether a particular recorder implements it is another matter. Unfortunately the GX3 offers a drastically cut-down version of +RW.
As I said, to get 16:9 playback in a recording made on the Sony, you would have to rip the title from the disc and edit the IFO file using a PC drive. If you want to get into that I can provide a link.
