DVD Recorder with Video Camera

Hi

I would like to know if is it possible to transfer a Hi 8 or DV video camera tapes onto DVD recorder and get them on DVD.I have a few questions to ask how many hours will fit on a DVD and secondly will it be in MPEG 2 and will the quality be that good and how lond does it encode onto DVD?

Lastly can it make copies of non encrypted DVDs?

Thank You

Yes.

That depends on what quality mode you choose. The lower the quality you choose the more you will get on each DVDR/RW.

Yes. DVD authored material is always encoded as MPEG2.

See the answer to your second question. As a general rule, up to 2 or 2.5 hours per DVD is acceptable to most people.

It takes as long as your home movie is. It is recorded and encoded in real-time by the DVD recorder.

Yes.
