OK, I am fairly new to this and badly need some help hopefully somebody can advise me!
I have a DVD Recorder a Philips DVDR3480 and recently I have begun transferring some stored TV programmes and Films from my Sky+ box (a Satellite PVR, like Tivo incase you don’t know).
I am using Sonic MyDVD LE (Dell provided software which has many features blanked out). Anyway when I record the film/tv show and record everything it is fine allowing me to add chapters, trim and Burn to blank disk. However when I hide scenes (ad breaks usually) using the DVD recorder it will only pick up around 66% of the video making the whole thing useless as the other 34% over an hour in a three hour film missing.
I’d like to know what is causing this and if it can be rectified on my software.
However; the software that I am using is pretty crap anyway and ideally I like to use a software that would allow me to edit the video, ie. cut out ad breaks and insert a few “bleebs” instead of bad language, for home videos (don’t ask! :o) and of course have the usual toys of creating the title menu and customisable backgrounds etc. My Budget for this software is around $50 and ideally it should be pretty idiot proof. Please also recommend freeware versions too. The whole cutting out the ads is all I am missing now.
Any help would be great
