I see you're a discerning viewer of quality.
  • Hard disk?
  • Editing?
  • +R/-R?

Or does it not matter... just the '>10 hr'.

Hope you are looking at bluray.. Getting 10 hours of quality video on even a dvd dual layer would be difficult.. For quality, it is recommended that you do no more than 2 1/2 to 3hrs on single, which would mean 5 - 6hrs on dl.

DVD-R/DVD+R Recordable media. I like recording up to 10 Hours because I like more viewing content.
If you can watch it, you can enjoy it. Not sure what the big hype with bluray. When Bluray recorders come out I will be interested...15 bucks for BD-R is too pricey. I just received a PM he mentions the new pioneer recorders can hit up to 18 hours on DVD+DL...I might give that a try
I have a pioneer recorder that only supports DVD+R/DVD-R/-RW.
So, I'm gonna try this new recorder this friday.
And, by the way, 10 hour mode in this recorder is virtually the same quality as a 2 hour mode because
10 hours just becomes more soft but, not pixelated Pioneer is the best!

You said "single layer discs" . So I think <9 hrs per SL.

MPEG1.

I guess you know what you want.

Re: I'm looking for a DVD Recorder that Records over 10 Hours on a DVD-R/DVD+R Media

Pioneer and Sony HDD/DVD recorders (Sonys being Pioneers inside these days) will allow you to record to DVD-R/RW media in "MN1" mode which should give you 13h 22min recording time according to the manual for my Sony RDR-HX750 recorder.

This recording mode is not available for DVD+R/+RW/+R DL.

The quality in this recording mode is pretty bad (Youtube quality) but watchable if you don't really care.

Mpeg1 is roughly the same quality as VHS isn't it? We withstood that quality level for years.

Though why anyone would choose to do so now is beyond me.

Very impressive unit indeed (records 24 hours on a DVD+DL disc) only problem is: the unit you mentioned is in region 3 Austria. I need Region 1 ...

Actually, quality in 10 hours & 30 minutes (SEP) mode using a Pioneer DVD Recorder brand: DVR-231-s to be exact is very decent. Quality its like Super VCD qualty

Well, bluray is as good as upconvert DVD player IMHO and, much cheaper!
DVD format is the most popular format in the world. SONY is gonna have to sell there Bluray players at a more budget price to compete with DVD.
Specially in these crisis times...unless your rich...
Why would you wanna spend 15 bucks for 1 BD-R disc when a DVD-R is like 20 cents when purchased in a spindle?

As long as you are happy with the quality you are getting, we are happy... I can easily notice the difference between putting 2 1/2 hours onto dvd (with professional software), and putting 4 hours onto dvd. Is it still watchable? Sure.. But I definately prefer to keep my dvd's below 3hrs..

ill second that, as 3 hours is about the longest i would 'recommend' for quality reason's although 2 to 2 1/2 hours is probably optimal between decent recording length and great quality.
