Hi, I have been using my pc to recorded from my sky box( not +) and to burn DVD's but the whole the process is rather time consuming. Just for cutting out the ads. (I do not want to get sky+) Please would someone advise me on the following: I would like to buy a DVD recorder like the Pioneers 220- range. OR something similar. 1. I would like to be able to cut out the ads. Editable VR mode any good? any problems playing back on other machines not seeing the edited chapters ? I have a Phillips DVP520 -which is able to play nearly all disks.(-/+ jpeg) Would this be able to ignore the edited chapters in VR mode- when finalised? 2. Do I really need a hard drive for the editing - as I only need to remove the ads or a late start in the recording? any other possibilities 3. Would I be able to play the finalised disks from the DVD recorder on my pc (not being RAM) or be able to play PC recorded DVD's on the DVD recorder? And if not (although time consuming) - would I be able to record the output of the dvd recorder to my PC and then dub the edited version back to the DVD recorder? 4. What other things should I consider? 5. My budget is around £200-£320. Many thanks.
