I am at a crucial point in making a decision on the Panny HS2 machine... howeber, doing my research I have come across this statement from Amazon in the Technical Data; DVD-R Playback Capability* (*This unit can play back Panasonic DVD-R discs recorded with Panasonic DMR-E20 DVD video recorder. It may not be able to play some DVD-R discs depending on the condition of the recording.) - now, I understand the bit about playing back DMR-E20 recorded discs, but not the latter. Are they saying the HS2 will NOT playback DVD-R discs recorded on another system? ie. if I have made a DVD-R (a standard compliant disc, I might add) on my PC drive, is this going to play on the HS2??? This, for me, is quite a crucial matter since I make many discs via my PC writer... Thanks if anyone can clear this up.
