At the moment it seems the only to transfer a programme from the Skybox to a DVD recorder, is to do it uninterrupted.

Is there a programme where I can edit things such as adverts out of the finished disc??

Thanks
Mark

Edit the adverts out once they are on the DVD recorder before burning to disc.

Or press pause each time the commercials start - then restart recording each time the commercials end.

Many thanks for the quick reply.

Would this mean I would have to record on a ReWriteable disc?

Also, is the editing done through the machines software? I have Panasonic Video-DVD Recorder....

Some DVD recorders with built in hard drive allow you to perform some basic editing functions. So you would record the video to the hard drive of the recorder, edit the ads then burn to disk. Often the disk burning stage is much quicker than real time so not such a pain.

I'm not sure I've seen a DVD recorder that will let you edit on the DVD disk however. It might be possible with RW disks or RAM type disks. But if the recorder cannot edit on the DVD disk and has no hard drive allowing editing then the only options are pausing during the ads. Or ripping the disk to a PC drive and using some video editing software to do the job then burn the finished result to a new disk. Or capture the video direct from the Sky box to PC and edit/burn on there rather than the DVD recorder.

Looking at the manual it appears not, unless I'm missing something....

What is the model number of your recorder? Quite possible there is a manual online for it we can have a look at.

If you look at the online manual available from this webpage (not sure I can link direct to the PDF)

http://www.panasonic.co.uk/html/en_G...447/index.html

(I chose the bottom 13MB link) Go to page 46 "Editing Titles" and read through the instructions on that and the following page. It describes a way to edit out parts of a recording. Might do the business. Just don't Finalise the disk before you try to edit it though

It seems this is only possible with a DVD-RAM, not an -R or -RW.

Would that be correct?

Looks like it does only do it on a RAM disk. Which is a bit of a bummer.

Any of the Pana combo HDD+DVD recorders will allow a partial edit on the HDD, then will transfer to DVD at high speed, finalising in the same step, if desired.
