Thank you in advance!
For the past 5 years, the manual for our DVDRs and the help files here have been using "Dubbing" for copying already recorded items with the INTERNAL drives, HDD>DVD and DVD>HDD.
For copying already recorded items from an EXTERNAL device like VCR, DVR or camera, these help files have used "Copying" while the manual uses "Recording." The manual would be clearer if it called all copying of already recorded items from external devices "Copying" instead of "Recording."
This applies to "DV Dubing" as well. The manual calls copying from external DV sources "Dubbing" and would be clearer if it called it "Copying" since it also involves already recorded items from an external source.
"Recording" should be used for actual real-time recording (RTR) from coax (antenna or cable) or line input (manual or timer recording from a cable/satellite box/STB).
So, basically, all copying of already recorded items from EXTERNAL sources should be called "Copying" whereas using the internal drives HDD>DVD or DVD>HDD should be called "Dubbing."
This leaves the FW's menus unchanged... Dubbing menus are called "Dubbing" and already identified as HDD>DVD or DVD>HDD, while there are no menus for copying from external sources except for DV, where the menus are OK as is (only the manual uses "DV Dubbing").
