I'm trying to make a difficult decision about which DVD Recorder to buy. Most of them seem to be very similar, except that half only record to DVD-R and DVD-RW, and the other half only record to DVD+R and DVD+RW. I have discovered that all Philips, Magnavox, and RCA DVD recorders and most (but not all) Sanyo DVD recorders record only to DVD+R and DVD+RW. On the other hand, Sony, Toshiba, Pioneer, and Emerson DVD Recorders only record to DVD-R and DVD-RW. And Panasonic DVD Recorders only record to DVD-R and DVD-RAM. Well, I don't want to end up with a DVD recorder that only records to a format that becomes obsolete. Back in the early 1980's, I bought a Beta VCR because when I bought it, Beta and VHS were equally popular, so I thought it didn't matter whether I bought a Beta VCR or a VHS VCR. But just a few years after I bought it, it started to get harder and harder to find movies on Beta, and now Beta VCR's are already as obsolete as 8-track tape players! So I don't want to make the same mistake again. I would like to hear everyone's opinions about whether you think the "minus" or "plus" format will become the dominant format in the future.
