Is it better picture quality to output a DVD-R from the E30 to record to DVD-R in the E80, OR, do it all in the E80, from DVD-R to the hard drive back to DVD-R. SInce I have both machines now, I have this option. Much of a difference in picture quality? I need to do more testing with DVD-Rams to see. I haven't even hooked up the E80 yet.

I haven't tried it myself, but the E80 manual seems to indicate that dubbing from DVD-R to HDD is NOT allowed....

Claims you can only dub DVD-RAM to HDD. Of course you can dun HDD to either DVVD-RAM OR DVD.R...

There are other strange "one-time" limits that seem to apply in some cases. Probably due to copyright issues...

Oh, thanks. I did read that someone cabled the DVD-R playback out the output jacks back into the input jacks and then recorded it to the hard drive. I may try that. Should work, I guess.
I still have a lot of testing to do, but trying to cut some corners by seeing what others have tried already. Great toy tho!

Yeah, that should work, but it's not a true lossless digital dub...

You may also end up with some menus and other UI graphics on the recording.

Best way to dub a DVD-R is probably on a computer with a DVD burner.

You can dub a DVD-R to the hard drive if you use another player or recorder. You can only dub from the E80 to its drive if you are dubbing from a RAM.

The only benefit to dubbing to the drive is if you were making multiple copies and wanted to use "high speed" to save time. I recently re-recorded several letterbox DVD-R's to DVD-R using the E80 to re-format them to 16x9. I used an S35 to play and re-format with excellent results. I was recording movies to 16x9 from DirecTV, such as Where Eagles Dare, Once Upon a time in the West and many others.

Could you explain this is more detail? I don't think I understand exactly what you're doing. Thanks.
