The DVD Recorder is connected to the Virgin V+ Plus Box via a Scart Lead. Normally when using the DVDR, I use AVI for playing a DVD and AV2 for recording. In the case I mentioned I am trying to copy a recording (Kingdom of Heaven)which is stored on the V+Box to the DVDR. I followed the instructions supplied by Virgin for doing this, but they do not mention whether I should set the Recorder to AV1 or AV2. When I tried yesterday I think I had set it to AV2 !!!!
The Virgin technician installed the box earlier this week.....I vaguely remember him saying "when using the box in conjunction with the DVDR use AV1. Just remembered this!! I will have to experiment and come back to you.
The film 'Kingdom of Heaven' is the full version and lasted from 21.00 to 00.50. The DVDR was running the whole time and stopped after 4.50 hours.....don't know where it went though as it would not play back. All I got was a picture of the V Box instructions when I tried to play it !!
