Carl. I remeber your parents live in Spain, sending them DVD's will be much cheaper on the postage
6hr mode is fine. I use it for recording films from tivo. About the same quality as LP VHS, or slightly better..
Not had any coasters with it, 4 comleate discs using DVD+R, and halfway through the 5th , plus the RW disc as mentioned above for time shifting. The DVDR hasn't had any firmware updates by me, but this doesn't mean that the guys at RGB Direct didn't do it. Even if its an old firmware, I don't plan to do anything about it, as the player/recording features work 100%
The 6 disc sample pack, is different make discs. I bought this as some people claim different discs work, and some don't, the coaster bit you reffer to I think. As far as I can tell, it doesn't seem to make much diference, but bought a 25cake of datawrites, as they work OK, and are the cheapest. works out at about 79pence per disc, including postage.
All come from SVP communications, who were the cheapest at time of ordering, and they are the only people who sell sample packs.
One thing that I have noticed, and this may/not apply to you, is the discs don't play in all DVD players. The finalised DVD+R discs from my machine wont work in my Orion DVD. Not tried to use the +RW disc in the standalone player.
