I am thinking about doing this dub at the SP speed because I used the SP speed when recording it to the HDD. But I suspect I will lose quality because it will probably re-encode during the dub.
So my question is: Does anybody know if the "High Speed" dub is the only lossless way to dub from the HDD to a DVD-R or a DVD-RAM? It would be nice if Panasonic used a direct digital dub between the HDD and a DVD-R or DVD-RAM if you selected the same dub speed as was used when it was recorded to the HDD. I think at a 1X speed the transition point where the 90 minutes of the program was deleted should be about as smooth as watching that program play to the TV?
If I will lose picture quality I will probably use the "high speed" dub speed and tolerate the rough transition from the 1st broadcast to the 2nd broadcast.
