New here from Bastrop Texas(near Austin)
I have a sony DVD set top recorder. I have a sister who lives up north and doesn't get the sci fi channel so I want to record Stargate Atlantis for her, and bought a cakebox of DVD-RW so I could sent them to her and her husband, they could watch and send back and I could recycle. I had them check their unit's compatability as it dawned on me I had taken a home recorded disk up there before and it didn't work. They have a JVC "home theater" system and in the specs of what media it uses, it mentions DVD-R but not RW..I guess I could record them to -R disks but I hate to waste all those disks..Is there any trick I could do to make their player read them? I am not 100% sure it won't as I haven't send them any yet..I am gonna send them both types to try..I suggested they buy a better DVD player and piggyback it to the other one..Also my DVD recorder when I format the disk it asks me if I am using "VR" or "Video" and I always say video. What does that mean? I couldn't find a clear explination in the manual..
Thanks so much!!!
