I have a question about either the HS2 or the Toshiba unit. Can anybody describe or detail the editing capabilities on recordings on the hard drive? I am looking for more powerful editing tools then my E20.
What I would really love to do is to take several television shows that are recorded onto the hard drive, edit out the commercials, place chapter marks and episode menu information, and then create a DVD layout that describes which episodes are to be recorded to the DVD in which order.
After doing all of that, I would like to be able to put in a blank DVD and press "dump" and walk away, letting the recorder dump all of the episodes to disk. That way, I could make multiple copies of the same episodes by repeating the dump process.
Does anybody know if either HDD DVD recorders will support this type of functionality?
