I've encountered a problem recording to DVD-RAM in high speed mode. This isn't a widescreen flag issue, but a problem with the recording itself. 16:9 material is squeezed beyond 4:3, i.e. when I play back the DVD-RAM I can't stretch the picture enough to get the correct aspect ratio. The TV's 16:9 setting improves things, but I'm still left with black bars on either side. It also messes up the aspect ratio of native 4:3 material. I tested this by transferring some recordings from my old 4:3 camcorder. This only happens with DVD-RAM. I've tried DVD-R and DVD-RW with no problems. It's also not a problem with high speed mode off. Another thing to point out is that playback on the EX-75 itself is fine, it's only playback on my other (Panasonic) DVD player that is problematic. I spent half an hour with Panasonic's support people who suggested that the EX-75 was faultly and I should take it in for repair. However I'd like to check that this isn't a "feature" in which case it's unlikely to be fixable by a local service agent.
