Hi, all, Just bit the bullet and procured a Panasonic DMR-E50 component DVD recorder. I'll be picking it up Wednesday. I'm hoping to circumvent an ill-devised manual and solicit some tips on the forum. Here's what I want to do: 1. Record from VHS to the unit. No editing necessary. What is the difference between DVD-R and DVD+R, if anything? Since I don't plan to muck with the discs again, I'd want one of these two, correct? What's the cheapest online resource for them? 2. Edit a "best of" disc from other tapes, culling from multiple sources. This is possible, right? I would need DVD-RW for this, correct? Again, cost? Anything else I should know about this player? Thanks in advance for the advice.
