Are any of the existing crop of DVD+/-RW recorders able to make dual layer recordings? If not will this ever be possible on home machines or will they always be limited to 4.5Gb recording capacity?

No - I'm afraid not.

From what I've read no - opinions differ (of course) but before this becomes viable we will see a higher capacity solution appear (e.g. Blu Ray). The Studios and 'powers-that-be' are also against this as it will make piracy easier (no re-encoding required when ripping a Dual Layer Disk).

Many (most?) DVD-RAM disks are double sided but this is just equivalent to having two disks stuck together.
