Thought I would add this. Its become apparant that the New Pioneer DVR, the 109 model (or A09) has issues with DVD-R media, I tested this and found that indeed it does. The problems arent as apparant when making movies on dvd-r, BUT if you are thinking of XBOX backups to dvd-r, then dont use this burner until more firmware upgrades are available. I tried 4 media brands of DVD-R, these brands made perfect backups with my Pioneer 106, BUT would not work when burned with the 109 (I used a Samsung XBOX drive to test) I also found that , although media used IS an issue with XBOX burned media, ALSO there is an issue with what burner has been used to create the disc. To test another theory. I burned Velocity DVD+R discs with my Pioneer 106, and the same game backup I made with my NEC 2500. The results were, the backup played perfect in my Samsung Drive when burned with the NEC, but would not play when burned with the Pioneer. Be aware of these issues when selecting burners and media types.
