I am currently playing with the settings and getting used to this good looking machine. I have however got stuck and searching the manual doesn't seem to help me. I have got an episode of alias on the hard drive and have succesfully removed the ads and trimmed the start and end. I want to transfer it to a DVD-R using flexible rec mode of 1hr 26 mins, so that I can fit another episode on the disc. How do you do this? I have pressed the dubbing button and it asks if I want to do high speed dubbing, when I press no , the dubbing menu goes off? I tries again using a DVD-RAM and pressed yes and then that worked, but it recorded in the XP mode (thats what I was in) and no option to use FR mode. Please come and give me an answer because this is the main thing I wanted to do with the E85.
