It doesn't matter, but the bottom crawl is Nasdaq, not S&P. The HD feed on CNBC can have blurring of the crawls during commercials. Don't use it as a benchmark for clarity. The bottom crawl is sometimes slower. Yeah, I watch CNBC all the time. Sometimes the SD version is easier to watch.

I order to have frame accurate editing, the unit has to have capability for local recoding around the cut point. Real-time burning will do that because it recodes the entire video during the output. Unless the HSD has local recoding built in it will make cuts at an I-frame. It would be surprising to see that capability in one of these units.

The bitterness of poor quality lasts long after the sweetness of the low price is forgotten . . . life is too short to drink bad wine

VR mode at least in theory is accurate to the frame, while DVDs using it may not be playable on the player you want to play it on.
So between "Video" mode and "VR" mode, "Video" mode is the one you'd want so's to assure it'll play on a standard DVD player?

The only possible sign of it (that I've found) is on page 101, bottom part of the "Recording" section. It also seems to suggest this can only be done in "Video" mode. Again, wondering what that's all about.
Does anyone with the 557 have any experience in burning a DVD in anamorphic widescreen?

If we misunderstood this all along and the 557 can't do it anyway, then that's a reason to not bother with it if you've got several of the earlier models.

Hi, I have a Magnavox 513 that I got around less than 3 years ago and it has been a great machine but I just had a problem.It all of a sudden can not erase or record on any RW DVD.When I try, for about 14 seconds it seems like normal but then I get an error message.

Recording Error
Can Not record on this disc
E 4 54043e02

It can play what was on the RW DVD.Also I have tested and it seems to play all DVDS and it can record on -R and +R.So the only issue seems to be with RW DVD's.

I use RW DVDs a lot so loosing this feature hurts my normal recording a lot.

I was wondering if I could get some advice on what I should do or try.
Thanks so much

If you are having trouble with DVD+RW discs try switching to DVD-RW. My 513 and 515 both do the same thing yours does with all of the discs from a 10 pack of cheap Memorex DVD+RW discs that I have. The recorders work just fine with all of the other disc types and brands that I have (Sony+R and -R, TY-JVC -R, and Memorex +R, -R and -RW). Both of my Magnavox recorders are heavily used so it's possible the spindle clamp is just getting dirty and can't get a grip on those discs. The same +RWs play in the Magnavox recorders and they read and write fine in my computers so I don't think there is anything wrong with the recording area.
