I hope some of experienced users of this combo unit can help me.
My friend purchased this combo model as she wanted to save all her VHS tapes to DVD. I recommended her this product as I thought it would solve her problems.
I assisted her in her attempts to dub few VHS tapes to DVDs and we encountered a problem that we could not solve.
We wanted to dub 4 hours video tape to one DVD but only approx. 2 hours fitted. Then I decided to buy DVD double layer disck, thinking that if a regular DVD disk fits 2 hours, then double layer will be perfect for 4 hours. But I was wrong. Again, only 2 hours was recorded on double layer disk. Only the quality was automatically changed to HQ even though we would prefer lower quality but to fit 4 hours to one DVD disk.
While in recording TV program to DVD or VHS, I can change the quality of recording (SP, LP, HQ etc.), I couldn’t figure out how to do it while dubbing from VHS to DVD.
Has anyone encountered this problem and resolved it?
