I've done a search for answers to this question but had no luck or just didn't ask the right questions so apologies if this has been done to death before.
I have a Toshiba DR-1 DVD recorder onto which I have recorded various off-air broadcasts. On the DR-1 itself I edited out all the adverts.
But I have now bought myself a nice LG GSA-4163B multidrive with the aim of taking the recordings off the DVD-RAM originals and burning them back to considerably cheaper DVD-R or DVD+R to keep. I hoped this would be a quick and easy process.
What I would like to do going forward is to use DVD-RW's and DVD-RAM to take broadcasts off air and then edit out adverts etc on the PC, which I'm hoping will be much quicker and simpler.
So, if anyone could recommend some (preferably freeware) software I can use for this I'd be very grateful. I am prepared to pay for some software if I get a whole load of people recommending the same thing and it's a must-have utility.
Links to tutorials and other helpful stuff much appreciated too...
