I'v only had this unit for a week and the third disc did not record audio only the video . this also happend on the next disc however I did hear the audio during the recordings . Sony's c.s. said to return the unit for another . Wondering if anybody else has had this problem as I'm leary about trying another . I'm not a big fan of the Panasonics either and have found the recorded and playback picture quality of the sony to be better . I've tried all pany's except the dmre-60 & e-80 . The e-50 performed quieter and ran cooler than the e-30 , hs2 & e-20 however in fixing the black level problem they created another problem of image contour lines . The chroma issue makes flesh tones look like a paint by number rendering . I have not tried the e-80 but I'm pertty shure it's the same . In addition my local channels vary from noise to unwatchable venitian blind effect with the pany's . And last when I finnish burning and finalize about every other disc in 60 min . mode than hit play they skip in several second intervals . Do I try another sony or wait for the pioneer ? Just wondering if the sony is going to be as problem riddled as the philips 985's ?
