I couldn't get the 'Quick Timer' function to work on my Sony RDR HXD560, then noticed in the manual 'TV Direct Rec' needs to be set to 'off', in setup/recording for this to work. I tried that but 'TV Direct Rec' still works and 'Quick Timer' doesn't. Do any/all of the other HDR HXD machines have this problem? Also the recording modes seem to be mis-reported in the DVD title list when dubbing from HD, ditto DVDs originated on a Philips recorder, although the files themselves seem to be appropriately sized when copied from the DVD via DVD decrypter. Ditto re other HDR HXD machines?
