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.
