I just received this recorder from amazon. 1. I do not know if this recorder is multi region by default or one have to program it using remote control? Manual provided is giving no indication. 2. I recorded from my Sony digi camcorder using the front end AV inputs which plays ok on the recorder itself but not recognised by my stand alone dual format poineer and Tosheba DVD players. It also plays in my computer ok. I am using the supplied DVD+RW which does not need finalizationas as mentioned in the manual. Any idea please?
