Hi Well after much umming and ahhing I've finally decided to go for the E55 (and the £169 deal at boots certainly helped the decision , should be picking one up tomorrow as I have it reserved!). So a few question if you don't mind. a)I watch a lot of tv where its episodes. I will mainly be recording on to sky plus hard drive and then copy the programme(s)onto disc. Would I be able to fit say up to four (depending on bitrate/length obviously) on to one -r blank disc if the programmes are an hour long. Or is it a case of just being able to transfer one episode across and then finalize it? b)Once the disc is finalized (assuming the answer to the above is "no" then I may as well just whack the hour long programme at the best bitrate availaible yes?) will the disc be able to be played on ANY region (whether its 1, 2,3,4 or whatever)dvd player without any problems? c)will the disc be playable on any -r compatable pc dvd rom drive? d)Can you transfer from Sky to -ram and then from -ram to - R. If you can is there any point in doing so? e)Any preferences to which brand of -r discs to go for, and wheres the best place online to order from. Cheers for any replies. I will probably be back tomorrow searching the forums on tips on how best to set it up.
