Just in case you've missed it, Panasonic DVD recorders have a
"flexible recording mode" that fits the desired record time to the
disk. So 1h30min, 3hr., 45min, 3h52min, whatever. Makes no
difference. I use it all the time for unusual length material to get
the betst bit rates. And very handy as I copy my 2hr2min Hi8 home
video tapes to DVD.
Do you happen to know how well these non-standard rate DVDs play on
non-Panisonic players? Have you ever recorded something and then
played it on somebody elses player?
The flexible mode recordings play perfectly fine on all three of my
DVD players, but all my players are Panosonics (of differing vintage),
so that doesn't say too much. They also play fine on my Mother's TV/
DVD combo, but that's a Panosonic as well. Fortunately, the flexible
recordings play perfectly on the Cody(?) el-cheapo player at the
cottage as well. I suspect they would play anywhere.
