I have been reading the Tosh Manual Recording mode, and I find it very convenient. However, I have a question: Looking at the variable bit rate, you can linearly decrese it until 2.0 (4h 20 min). At this point, there is a big jump until 1.4 (6h 4 min). This means that if I have a 2-hour movie and a 3-hour movie, I cannot choose any bit rate equivalent to 5 hours, so that I can put both together in a DVD. Therefore, I should record them both as SP mode, and then re-encode and dub them. The question is if by doing this, the machine would choose the appropriate bit rate to fit a DVD (something between 2.0 and 1.4), or it would default them directly to 1.4. I hope I have explained myself clearly.... Kisses. Rebecca.
