1st off, let me report that I've had a Philips 985 for about 6 weeks, & have had no problems at all. This site / forum was invaluable both before and after my purchase. My next project is trying to make copies of DVD's that I have recorded. I have a DVD player [I don't remember the brand name] and would like to "play" a dvd in it while recording it onto a blank disc in the Philips. Does anyone know if this is possible ?? And if so, how do I set it up ?? Thanks in advance.

It's possible, but you can only record 2 audio channels and video will only work if the source doesn't contain macrovision or other copy control technology.

If your source DVD doesn't contain the copy protection flags, or if your source DVD player does not contain copy protection (e.g., macrovision) capabilities, then no problem - you hook up the component output of the source DVD to the recorder's component input and press REC....
