It seems I've wasted hours of chapter creating time as they are all lost when I re-size for the DVD, but apart from being annoyed about that, I have a few questions: 1) I've just read in the manual that the bit rate needs to be 4.0 or above to go on DVD!!! Page 122 under the "Preparation" note. This can't be true, can it? That means that I can't put anything recorded in LP, or indeed most things that will be re-sized (like the stuff I am now wanting to put on a disc). If this is true, the the machine is virtually useless to me. 4.0 will be something like 2 hours 15mins I think. 2) There is a High Speed Dub, a DVD Video Creation, and a Finalization option. If the DVD creation is the one that selects the titles and creates the menus, what is the point of the other two? It looks like the high speed one just copies the video. What would happen if I put it in a DVD? Would it just play everything straight away one title after another? It looks like finalizing it adds a menu. Is this to add it to a disk (DVD-RW I suppose, as a DVD-R wouldn't allow further writing) that has only got the video on it? I thought discs needed to be finalized to play properly on other machines. If so, why would you ever not use the DVD Video creation opton. It seems a bit pointless to me to have the other two options. Am I missing something?
