Hi, I have bought one of these recorders and I am currently using DVD-RW discs for recording (4xVerbatim, 2xDatawrite and 1xCrappy). When playing the recordings back I am seeing smearing and pauses in the playback (in all modes XP, SP, LP). I was wondering if anyone else has seen this? If I used DVD-RAM disks would I get a better recording? or could this be down to the quality of the analogue ariel signal in the box? Thanks Neil.
