    Hi People,
    just thought i'd let you know of something that
    I found out and find to be very interesting.

    I have had my DMR-E30 for just over a week now, and
    I must say it's really impressed me.

    Anyway my mother has an old alba dvd player and I have
    recorded a few films for her, 2 films on each disc, none of
    which would play, although they would on my mates PS2
    so not a total loss, as they were all quite new.

    I then recorded various films and tried them all out on the
    Alba - things were not looking good until i came across a
    film that I had recorded in SP mode and it played flawlessly
    in the Alba. So I recorded a few more in SP and they are all

    Obviously this is still a problem as anything over 2 hours is
    a no no, but it seems that SP mode is more compatible with
    older players.

    I will try recording in LP mode tonight but set it to record a
    constant and not variable bit rate and let you know the results.

    I feel that if they work on the old crappy alba they should work
    on just about anything.
