My first question is, what kind of disc was it that came free with the dvd recorder?? it seems to work well on all my dvd players! i like to know the brand or what's the best that works with ilo? 2nd i just have a basic dvd recorder hook up to my vcr to transfer vhs to dvd seems to work great, but i did have some problems when i tried to transfer a reguler movie it was 2hrs and it stopped at 135 but the first time i was scared so i tried to tape a two and a half hour program i set it at 4hrs and it worked i used the remaing time and taped a hour program and it taped it all so i was happy, last night i did the hack thing and it's now region free i haven't retaped that movie yet so i wonder if it would work now since i used the hack code? and finally i can't do the other hack cause i'm on a crappy webtv and i can't download discs or firmware, which just sucks big time, sorry if this is a long post but i'm new at this and it's so confusing!!!! thanks..
