    Just bought me a Panny E55 (very happy except for the lack of multiregion)
    Quick question regarding dual sided media though...does the player automatically start recording on the second side of the disk or do I have to turn it over manually at the end of the first side? Just wondered before I bother buying a few as they are triple the price of a single side disk and seems pointless otherwise

    Kinda defeats the whole saving bit then. Was hoping it just carried onto the other side for muchos unattended recording time :)
    Ah well, Single sided it is then.

    There is not much point to dual sided disks as they only come in cartridges, and it is much more economic, and easier to find naked single sided disks.
