I am still waiting for Double Layer DVD recorders to arrive, to use my unique equipment then promo the disc on my I8600, this will allow me to get longer films on at SP with up to 4 Hr on a 8.5GB disc. Backing up discs was great but I could never out films lie the 1960 version of "The Alamo" on as soon as the DL show up I can put films like "Storm of the Century" "The Untouchables", and the "Robin Hood: Prince of Theives" all still a flipper onto a one sided disc I don't feel like going out and rebuying movies that already anamorphic. The Thing, Top Gun, would have to be bought but I have a heck of big VCR collection to put on that are just not being put on DVD example 1965 Dolby Surround version of "The Battle Of the Bulge" or Region 1 of "The Dam Busters" still for sale on VHS.
Lazy ol me still has to get up and put the other R2 discs in one at a time, not like my 300+1 Sony Changers, lets face it I am spoiled rotten, the other reason is the chances of a sucess to a waiting wheelchair. Falling on your ass and back can be very painful the seatbelts don't stop the dumping or embarassment of people gawking at you ready to call 911. I use to drive ambulances they are not the most comfortable items to arrive at, the wait, and eventually the bill owed.
