Wifey and I are very much interested in purchasing a DVD Recorder. So, knowing this is a group that knows an answer to almost everything, I’ve got some questions.
You are familar with MP3 CD’s correct? Well, I got this great nifty program called “Nero” that states I can make a DVD MP3 disc. However, I don’t know of any models that can play DVD MP3 discs. Do you? Which one and please, lead the way via the internet to it!
Whilst reading online elsewhere (I really don’t remember where) I learned that Pay-Per-View movies/events cannot be recorded onto DVD. One writer wrote of X’s all over the recorded information, where the new video should’ve been. Recording HBO, Showtime, digital and analog TV is not a problem. So, the question is, what machine out there will record the Pay-Per-Views. This is not a HDTV broadcast issue, this is an old issue that I’ll use history as an example for. When VCR’s were the craze/norm, the only machine out there that could “defeat” copyright protection was the dual deck known as GoVideo. This feature would ensure a person could have a back up of a store bought video concert/movie. A Comcast cable representative while finishing work on the pole line outside yesterday informed me that yes indeed, DVD recorders and Pay-Per-View essentially don’t mix. I do have a remedy for that but it takes double the time to get info onto a DVD. The remedy is, the VHS recorder (also known as VCR). Simply record the Pay-Per-View onto VHS, play the VHS and record the DVD. OR, keep the VCR in between the cable box and the DVD recorder. So again, the question is, what DVD Recorder out there can and will record Pay-Per-Views out there with no hindrence? Please, lead the way.
Price. I really don’t care to spend more than $250 USD.
Universal play. If “Joe Shmoe” sends me a PAL DVD, I’d like to be able to play it and or record in either NTSC or PAL. Please, lead the way!
