I'm considering getting a DVD recorder. I have numerous Japanese anime fansubs that may never see the light of day on DVD, as well as changing them over to a more spacious and easier to store media. Can anyone suggest a good DVD recorder. Another question, on recording from VHS to DVD format, how does the DVD compensate for tape lag in VHS? Also, does anyone know by chance if the Pioneer DVL-909 can play DVD-R format discs?
