    Hi, Im thinking of getting a DVD recorder but I just wondered how compatible the recorded discs are. I've pretty much narrowed it down to an HS2 because of the large hard drive, but does anyone know if I would be able to play back the discs I record on my DV27?

    If it's any help at all, all my DVD-R discs recorded on my Panasonic E30 play fine on my Arcam DV88+....sorry, wrong models I know.

    Hi,


    Not an exact match either but I can tell you that I can play back DVD-R and DVD+R on my DV27.

    These discs were recorded using a SONY PC DVD burner.

    I was told by Arcam support that the DV27 does not support DVD+-RW, although if you had the upgrade to DVD-Audio then the new transport mechanism you would also get would then work on RW discs as well.



    Hope this helps,


    Dave.

    thanks for the replies, after thinking about it I'm not sure it would really matter if the discs didn't play back on my DV27 I would only really be recording stuff to watch and then record over again, or maybe transfer some VHS tapes to DVD but even then I coud just play those back on the HS2 and rig it up so that I get stereo sound from my front speakers. Anything I really want to watch again and again I can just buy like I do now. I would probably use it mainly to record on the hard drive anyway. I think I'll probably wait until the price comes down a bit more if it's £600 ish now it will be £400 by Christmas :D
