    Can you define where the chapters are on a dvd-r before the disk is finalised? Or are you just stuck with the five minute intervals?

    You can set chapter points on the Panasonic E85 machine by:

    1. Setting the High Speed Dubbing option to "Yes".
    2. Recording to the hard drive.
    3. Setting the required chaper points.
    4. High speed dubbing to a DVD-R.

    I have a DMR 55. Before I unpack it i wanted to know about the chapter points. It has no hard drive. However, I do have sky+.

    If recording to DVD-R your stuck with the 5min chapter points. If you want to define chapter points on DVD-R you'll need to buy a HDD/DVDR combo.

    Thanks for the reply, does dvd+r work the same way?

    No, some DVD+R machines allows you to specify chapters although not precisely - you don't get anything like the Playlist function of -VR. Both types of machine will insert a chapter break when you press pause as well.
