Since this is a pretty long thread, I have to admit that I didn't read all the posts you guys entered, especially because most of the first pages refer to digital cable boxes and stuff, which are not available in Romania yet and don’t really affect me.
I got the DMR EH55 K a couple of days ago and I found the Romanian user's manual to be really annoying, as it is badly translated (no English manual came with the unit, unfortunately; I'll have to look for it in the Internet).
So, do not mind a question: I copied an old VHS tape on the HDD (great quality, by the way, couldn't tell the copy from the original) and I took the time to put some chapter marks in manually. Then, I copied the footage on a DVD-R. I was (very unpleasantly) surprised to notice that, on the DVD I created, my custom chapters were all gone, being replaced by 5 minute ones set automatically by the recorder. I used the "non-hi-speed" copy mode (45 minutes of material, 45 minutes of copying time). Quality mode was set to XP in both cases (initial HDD recording and then copying).
So, can I somehow keep my own chapters when copying stuff from HDD to DVD in 1X speed, or I'll just have to stick to the HS mode? (I wouldn’t like to use the high speed mode, because it’s less reliable for creating error-free, long lasting DVDs out of my old VHS video archive).
Thanks a lot!
