my mums VCR just died so we went and bought a DVD/Video recorder.
So I was all excited about being able to record films and things off the TV onto DVDs, so I had a look to see what was available in terms of DVD-RWs and stuff.
They ALL seemed to be 4.7Gb, 120 minute long. I don't think that is really long enough, because the main reason I would want to record onto a DVD is if there was a film on i wanted to keep, but a lot of films are (obviously) longer than 2 hours, so you couldn't record it all onto one DVD.
- Are there any longer DVDs out there? Or is there a way of recording at lower quality to get more recording time?
- What do you do if there aren't any longer ones?
- Should we have just got a hard-drive recorder?!?
Answers on a postcard pls.
