I have read many happy owners of the Panasonic but still haven't figured out what you get when transfering VHS to disc.I read somewhere that due to TBC the recording can be even superior to the original!Is this true?

Also how long can you really record on one disc without obvious loss of quality to the original?Thanks to anyone who will answer.

I have copied several movies from vhs to my dvd e-20. I originally taped from pay channels like HBO, Starz, etc. (These tapes were made using the highest recording speed.)

I usually use the flex record mode, adding several minutes to the vhs recording time to avoid under-recording. Viewed on a 56" (16:9) screen, I cannot tell the difference between the vhs and the dvd.

I have also recorded several movies from my Panasonic ShowStopper with excellent results.

I only wish dvd recordables had come around long ago!

I've also used my DMR-E20 to copy several old VHS tapes to DVD-R. To my eye, there is a small but perceptible improvement in the image quality when recording to the E20, presumably due to its input TBC. If you record at SP (2-hour) speed or better, you certainly will see no degradation in the quality of your VHS recordings.

It had the TBC , but also have a filter ( can't remember the type )

to further clean up tapes. Consider also that at the 2 highest

speeds of the E20--- XP and SP, you are doing near DVD

resolution ( over 400 lines )and video noise ( about 60 db.)

so you won't be adding any VCR type video problems...
