I currently have some footage of a concert on the E85 HDD of 2 1/2hrs in length. I want to back it up to dvd r, but because of the size when setting up the settings it will only fit on if done in sp mode. The problem with this is that there is a big loss in picture quality and the dvd -r will not finalize. (which I have since found out can happen if the quality is to low.) Is there an other way round this. Also if I try to transfer this to pc HDD, using S-Video and LR cables directly between each other, the concert plays with no problems if played on the E85 and watched on the pc, but when the recording is watched on the pc there is a stutter in places on the sound although the video quality is OK. I can get the sound quality back if when recording I drop the recording quality from dvd to vcr but then the picture quality is lost. Has anybody any ideas or solutions please, re this situation.
