I know, I know...Don't laugh about this old machine! It may be old, out-moded, difficult, downright stupid, but I'm attached to it. Anyway - I'm interested in knowing about recording modes. On my old Sanyo I get about 89 minutes of time in the HQ mode, 148 minutes in the SP mode, etc. This is using +R discs of several different brands. Is this true of other makes of recorder? We also have a rather dreadful Cyberhome machine [bought because it was very, very cheap]. This recorder stops at exactly 120 minutes in SP mode, doesn't matter how the timer is set - it stops. This is one reason I'm attached to the old Sanyo - it gives a nice window of time for messing up with timer recordings - it saves those shows that run over just a bit, those movies that are 121 minutes, 124 minutes, etc. I'm going to be needing another recorder one of these days and, alas, the old Sanyo is no longer available. Some upgrades would be appreciated also, of course. Any answers?
