There's just one small hitch in this...in our gross stupidity we put a DVD RAM in the machine rather than a -RW.

Keith is trying to work out if we can use any of the vast amount of electronic gear in our house to copy it across onto something more sensible.... Any suggestions gratefully received!

I knew it was going too well! 

Pretzel you were though right about needing to "finalise" the DVD and then being able to read it on the PC.  It does work - although it won't work on this because our PC doesn't read RAM!

Does anyone know if I can "network" the Sky+ box so  can use the DVD writer in my PC to burn stuff?

 

Yes you can Mark.  I looked into this a year or so ago, but at that time I didn't have a good enough graphics card to accept the input from the Sky+ box. 

You can connect via SVideo link or (better but a lot more expensive) via fibre-optic.

Parts/cables etc readily available at, if you want to use them, PC World, and I am sure that many other outlets would have them.

Del


The only problem is my Dell S video connector is OUTPUT only no input..... I can play to the tv but not record from it.

OK, we are getting there with this, although Keith has used up all his patience on it all!!

Our DVD recorder did indeed burst into flames this morning  Shocked  The nice people at Costco have refunded us for it and we've got a shiny new one with a built in hard drive as well.

Should get the DVD copied off tomorrow and on it's way to Pretzel ASAP!

What a blooming fuss!!!   Grin

OK after much swearing, some smoke and flames the DVD is on its way to Pretzel - it went in the box last night but may have missed the last post.

There are 2 Dvd's the first one is all of the coverage but the recorder was clearly dying at the end and the last 20 minutes or so is not good, lots of breaks in the coverage, jittering etc so we also recorded the last 20 minutes of the highlight prog on a separate dvd so you might want to put that on instead of the original stuff!

Piglet/keithk,

Just to confirm DVD's received this morning. Have not yet had time to review the content but will do later today. When all is done do you want me to return them to you?

So far as I can see from this thread the following have requested copies:

20vmk2_dub
ferrari spider
lorry

Please send me contact details via PM (except FS - I already have yours). Provided all goes well I should be in a position to send copies Monday.

Hi Pete

I'm impressed that you've got them  they went in the village postbox around 5 last night - I assumed the last post would have gone!!

We don't need the DVD's back - we've got the original RAM versions which we're gonna watch this afternoon - we've just been and bought beer so we're about to re-create a race meeting to celebrate Keith's birthday!

Enjoy!

Right, I have given the DVD's a brief review and it seems to me that if the adverts etc. were edited out it would make the viewing experience very disjointed so I propose just to make straight copies and distribute.

I would also point out that as it was recorded in long play mode the quality is not what you would expect from a bought DVD - no offence to Piglet and Keithk - that's just the way it is.

IRW -  please PM me your details and I will add you to the list.

It's the only way to get all the coverage copied onto DVD when you're away from home!!!  Wink   Hopefully now we've got a hard drive recorder it should be better next time!  Grin

Due to other stuff getting in the way over the weekend copies will probably now be mailed sometime mid week. Hope that is OK.

I dunno - all the way to Sebring and didn't get a chance to see the race eh?  Smiley

No problem Smokie. Please don't expect the same quality of artwork on the DVD box or printed DVD's as the Creation effort. Indelible pen is about the level of my capability in that area....

Please PM me your details.
