    I have a lot of 5ch DVD music videos. Is there a home theater DVD recorder that will allow me to record with the same sound quality as the original?

    Thanks

    You want to make backup copies and sort of retire the originals?


    I would of thought most DVD burning software could handle this. The real problem comes along with a dual layer DVD, I think most burners and burning software only support single layer, so they compress to fit it on, and you lose quality.


    Not real sure, I have not copied any DVD's yet. My collection is large, I am not sure if it is practical for me.

    All of them, as long as you use the same format disk (dual/single layer).

    My Dvd recorder is a Panasonic DMR-ES10. Reviews state that it records stereo. Is this not correct? Yes, I want to make one DVD with the "hits" from a few music video discs, but I want to retain the 5ch sound.

    I'd still think a DVD Burner with some good software is your best bet on this one. Your stand alone DVD recorder may not have this capability, this is true.
