    I just got a Pioneer 433 which is great, but I'm not able to dub to DVD-RW at high speed.

    I have several things recorded in XP+ quality in Video Mode on the HDD. I'm trying to record even small items which I know should fit on the blank 120-min Sony DVD-RW I'm using and it comes up with ""cannot copy at high-speed in video mode", and the recording has to be done in realtime. The manual states the ONLY Video Mode supports hi-speed dubbing to DVDR (the progs were also recorded to the HDD in Video Mode from Sky+)

    Strangely, in the Initial Setup menus, the HDD Recording option is greyed out, though you can see it IS set to Video Mode.

    Hope this is making sense to someone - I dont understand why I cant do hi-speed dubbing as I'm doing everything the manual says I need to do use hi-speed. Naturally this is a major problem - I really dont want to do all my DVD recording in realtime.

    Can anyone help?

    cheers

    When copying XP+ quality to a DVD-R(W) you have to do this in 1x speed

    EDIT: see manual page 39 (right down at the end of the page) and 64 (section Copy to DVD disc)

    ah right, thanks hkan. so the moral is dont record in XP+ for anything but archiving :)

    is it possible to change the quality of a recording once its been done?

    You can change the quality when you copy it to a DVD-R(W).
    But theres no way to change the quaity while its resting on the HDD.
    See page 65 in manual.
