Recodr video onto dvd disc?

  User-31020C6A-6E18-413F-AB65DC7EA8FF1A5D 14:29 12 Jan 2008

Can anyone advise how / if I can copy videos onto dvd discs, using the Panasonic DVD recorder DMR-EXT75EB, please?

I have tried lookng in the manual and at all the functions on the TV screen....but no success so far.

We have a Panasonic TX-26LXD600 TV and a Hitachi video recorder.

Please advise

Thank you

I just love old videos , especially those of Railways and Motor Racing that have not been re-released on DVD , but I digress!

I've had first class results from my old Sharp video recorder and Philips DVD recorder by doing the following:

Set up your DVD recorder to optimum settings by matching the playing time of the video to the recording time required on the DVD - generally speaking two hours.

Connect a scart from the output of the video recorder to the input of the dvd recorder.

Press play on the video recorder and record on the dvd recorder and sit back!

I would stress that this works for me with my equipment - can't guarantee it will with yours.

As above but you may need to select the scart as the input device to record from, have to do that on my Alba.

Just looked at buying a Philips DVD recorder but was put off by the fact it would only record from the inbuilt TV tuner and NOT from the scart socket.

As already said above remember max time is 2 hours for standard quality.However panasonics have what is called Flexi record this is useful should your proposed video be just over the 2hours by about 10 or 20 mins+ .The flexi will only compress to get that amount of time on .Whereas withsome other recorders you would need to set it for long play 4 hours therebye doing a lot of unneeded compression
