I'm serisouly thinking of buying the DMR-E30. I still have many questions about this unit. Maybe fellow HTF-ers can help me. 1. Chapter Programming: is it possible? do you have to do it manually? or can it be done automatically (set it for every 10 minutes, for example)? Should it be done during the recording process (a'la 'index' on a VCR) or can it be done when the disc is done but before finalizing it? 2. FR option, can it be done WITHOUT using a timer? Say I have a 127 minutes video, I don't want to use the 4-hour mode and at the same time I can't use the 2-hour mode. Can I set the compression to "127 minutes FR mode"? 3. Is the end result, after finalizing, be automatically copy protected a'la standalone consumer Audio CD recorder? 4. Can it disable Macrovision? This is NOT for piracy, but I have some music video which I own the copyright but no longer have the original Betacam tapes. I only have them on S-VHS and ED-Beta. I don't know whether they have Macrovi$ion embedded, but I just want to be on the safe side. Thank you.
