    Having looked through the manual for my HS2 I found something that set alarm bells going..

    'Recording to DVDr can only be done to 4:3 ratio'

    Is this the case and does that mean I can't archive a widescreen presentation to DVD r that will show in correct ratio??

    It records widescreen correctly to the HD but I've yet to try to DVDr.

    Don't worry, it means that the picture is recorded in 4:3 ratio but it's squashed (anamorphic!).

    It works fine.

    The recording to the hard drive includes the switch to turn the tv to wide mode, once dubbed to -R the switch signal is lost. You just have to remember to manually select the tv mode.
