My Panasonic DMR-E80H is scheduled for delivery tomorrow. I've been waiting for a couple of weeks, but couldn't beat the price I paid. UPS tracking site says it's currently sitting in Secaucus, NJ. I wonder if they'd let me drive out there and pick it up. I could be back home in 3 hours... Ok, need to keep my OCD in check. I have a box of 10 DVD-r's [memorex] and a UFC pay-per-view on Friday. I have a couple of questions. I've been flamed in the past for not searching, but try not to go easy on me if they've been answered, as I searched the audio/video sources forum for about an hour and a half before posting this. First. What's the low-down on copy protection? I have digital cable from Time Warner in NY. I expect that I will be able to record anything (except HD content) to the hard disk, and to DVD-r and DVD Ram. Correct? Second. Can I record commercial DVDs to the hard disk and/or to DVD-r or DVD Ram? Third. When I am creating a DVD of content created on my DV camcorder (wish the E80H had a DV input), can I create a menu and chapters on the DVD? I watched the feature demo on Panasonic's website. It shows how to shorten and divide clips, but doesn't mention making chapters. Fourth. I read on Panasonic's site something about copy protection on VHS tapes. How common is this VHS copy protection? Is it only on newer VHS tapes? Thanks for the help.
