    Hi. I have recently bought Panasonic EX-75. I have a Sky+ box which I use to record soaps / movies. It seems you can only transfer from Sky+ to EX-75 HDD at normal speed and when you record a dvd, it again records at normal speed. this obviously takes a lot of time. Can anyone help me with high speed recording or any suggestions to save time. Thanks

    I assume you are using DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW or DVD+RW rather than DVD-Ram.

    You have to set the [Rec for High Speed Copy] setting to [On]. Before you record the program.

    It is listed on page 34 of the manual.

    It does have limitations. eg The loss of the WSS signal.

    But that would speed up the dubbing to DVD from the HDD. Or you could just skip this stage and go straight to DVD.

    Hope that helps.

    You can only copy from the HDD to DVD (or vice versa), not from external devices such as Sky+.

    Sky+ can only output the signal as if you are watching it, so it's all done at normal speed, therefore no recorders can do a high speed copy from Sky+

    thanks for the replies. I was using DVD+R dics. So it is possible to record at high speed from HDD to DVD using RAM dics?

    Anything that has been recorded onto the HDD of the Panasonic recorder can then be transferred onto any DVD media at high speed as long as the original dub to the HSS was done with the high speed setting switched on.

    If you set the flag up (as mentioned above) you can do your hi-speed copying

    Yes, you can dub from HDD to RAM discs at high speed even with the [Rec for High Speed Copy] set to [OFF]. Thats how i have been transfering recordings from my older Panasonic machine since I got it a few years ago.
