Panasonics have these Recording Modes, showing recording duration: XP 1:00, SP 2:00, LP 4:00, EP 6:00 (default setting). ...

My main interest is early talkies through the film noir era. Since September 2005 my home recording has been with DVD. I record from TCM and dub selected recordings from my home-recorded videotape collection to DVD. Most of my videotape collection came from pre-2001 AMC. I expect to complete my dubb...
