LG RC199H DVD Recorder



I just got the LG RC199H and have a few questions. I also have another DVD player–can I put a DVD movie in my normal player and record it with the LG? I was just wondering if I can go that route to back-up my movies instead of putting them on my computer and burning them that way. Are there protection codes that will prevent me from doing this?

Lastly, what do people think about the LG RC199H? It seems like a great buy to me and I haven’t even hooked it up yet but I was wondering what opinions people have and if they have any advice for me (eg-which types of media to use/not to use, etc.) Thanks!
