Juts got a Panasonic DMRE50 from RS at the stonking proce of £237, multi region! What a machine for this price, I'm blown away with what my £237 has bought me. Good playback, great recordings, great on board tuner, great features, great compatibility and it even appears to be pretty easy to use. Who'd buy a VCR now?!!! Anyway, here's my question. I know it uses DVD-R for archiving and DVD-RAM for VCR style re-recording. However, wouldn't it be possible to ask it to record on to a DVD-RW until its full, then erase the contents on a PC DVD-RW drive? Or will it simply not recognise a blank DVD-RW?
