    Hi,

    I'm thinking of getting a Panasonic DMR-85 but after reading the user manual I noticed that when writing to DVD-R it will only do it in 4:3 aspect ratio.

    Is this correct? This seems strange as it suggests it will write Widescreen to DVD-RAM!

    Is this common amongst all makes that write to DVD-R?

    Thanks for your help.

    The Panasonic E8t will not record the widescreen switching signal when recording to DVD-R. The recording will still be anamorphic (assuming that is what the input is) - to correct the picture you simply need to press the 'Wide/16:9' button on your TV.
