    Hi all

    I am seriously close to buying a Panasonic DMR-E55EBS (multi region - £194.50 - delivered) and have a few questions

    1) Does anyone know where I can get it cheaper? Would prefer multi region, the above example is from digitaldirectuk.com.

    2) When recording onto a dvd-r disc --- once the program you have recorded is finished and you press the stop button, does that mean you cant record anything else onto the disc, as like a cd-r? Can you take the disc out and resume recording later, and then finalise the disc when happy with the content. Dont want to waste a disc on something that may last only half an hour - would want to record a few episodes of a series onto one dvd-r disc. I know I could put them on a RAM disc but that would make it a lot less compatible with other machines and dont have another machine to record/playback the RAM disc with for archiving.

    3) What is the difference between DMR E55 and DMR E55EBS, if any

    Hope this makes sense, thanks in advance for your time. :thumbsup:

    3) DMR-E55EBS is simply the UK specific model. I only know this because I got an E55 for someone in Ireland at Christmas only to find that they needed a VHF tuner in it and had to get the DMR-E55EIS (think it was!) instead. I guess the B=Britain and I=Ireland. Not sure about the other letters though.
