I certainly will chime in my forum friend. It got delivered to me at 7:00pm (EST), and believe it or not, I am actually reading the manual to go over some things BEFORE I hook it up (very unusual for me to do something like that
So far it looks like there are several things that you can do with the "-
) media, that you can't do with the "+
Here is an example...and this is just from reading the manual...you can set a DVD to anywhere from One Hour & One Minute, to 13 Hours and 22 Minutes (61 minutes to 802 minutes
) with 30 incrimental steps in between for a total of 32 possible settings. They can all
be used with the "Minus" media.
However with the "Plus" media, oh and by the way...to clear up any controversy...this unit DOES
record to all four blank DVD types (actually 5 if you include DVD-Ram
) those being: -R, +R, -RW, & +RW. But back to what I was saying about the "Plus" media...can only be set from the One Hour & One Minute mode to the 8 Hour mode (480 minutes
). So you lose the 10 Hour, 12 Hour, and 13 Hour:22 Minute modes with the "Plus" media.
Also you can high speed dub from the HDD to DVD, and you can do that on ALL
recording speeds with "Minus" media, but with "Plus" you can only do it with the 300 Minute (5 Hours
) setting or lower, which makes for 6 settings that if used with "Plus" media, do not allow High Speed dubbing.
Now I don't know why "Minus" media is allowed to pretty much do just about anything, and "Plus" is limited...or if it would really even matter to anyone...but I thought it was unique enough to list here.
To everyone in this forum, I promise that once I start using it...will be very soon...I will be back and list any goods or bads that I discover with this unit. It might take a moment until my next post, but...I'll Be Back
