I seem to have a problem that may be just me being stupid. I don't seem to ba able to record o my panasonic DMRE55 in a fromat that will play on my Denon 2910. I have Sky+ in one room with the Panny. I have copied a programme recorded on + onto both DVD Ram and DVD-R. Neother will play on the 2910. I realise that the RAM isn't supported by the 2910, but I thought the DVD-R would play.. but no. The E55 doesn't suppor the DVD-RW. Any ideas?

Are you finalising the DVD-Rs? I have recently trialled the 2910 in my search for a decent HDMI equipped DVD player and it certainly played DVD-Rs recorded on the E95 without any problems. If you are finalising and still having problems I suggest trying different DVD-R media - use branded discs.

OK, so now I am lost! I have tried two different brands of DVD-Rs. Can't get any to play on any DVD. They play back fine on the E55 but not on anything else!!! Should I be finalising them? Can you stop the E55 finalising discs. I thought that DVD-R was the most compatible?? Is it possible there is something wrong with the E55?
HELP

Should I be finalising them?
Yes - you should be finalising the discs. Once you have recorded all content to the disc, finalise it and then it will playback in virtually all DVD players/drives. Until you finalise it the disc will not playback in any DVD player/drive except the one you have recorded it in.

Refer to page 35 of your manual for instructions on how to achieve this simple task!

Problem solved. I thought they were finalising as this appeared on the screen at the end of a recording and counted down a % finalised. However, this wasn't finalising the discs. Discovered how to do this. Now no problem. Many thanks for help.
