Also in step D* changed the option to appropriate requirement for HDD.**B** Recorded the show form the TV channel * times by changing the video aspect ratio as stated in A* and G*.**I compared the outcome of eight show recordings. Here below are the findings: **a* *The shows recordings on “DVD” were all, I repeat, all were having “VERY DESTORTED” images what I mean is that the faces were elongated and the figures were squeezed. **b* *The shows that were recorded on HDD followed the aspect ratios perfect! That is the way I used to have the recordings on DVD when I used my old unit (“ZV***MW*A”). NO COMPLAINTS AT ALL!!**c**When I tried to copy the recording with the aspect ratios of “*:* Box” and “*:* Pan & Zoom” from HDD to DVD using the debugging option of “HOME” button, the recordings on the DVD were again observed to be totally distorted.***QUESTION:*Will you please explain me step by step how to correct this issue of recording on “DVD”?***Issue * *:**A* *When I scanned for TV channels using the “AUTO” option, it picked up only ** channels.**B**Then I used the option to scan manually, it started the process same as if I had selected the auto option, however this time it picked up addition * channels making the total of channels found to be **. **C**When I had used the unit “ZV***MW*A”, I had total of ** channels.**QUESTION:*So how do I add additional six channels that are available for viewing in this metropolitan area?***Issue * *:***The normal dubbing speed is one to one ratio from HDD to DVD and vice versa!**QUESTION:**How can I increase the dubbing speed, when I am dubbing the recorded show from HDD to DVD or vice a versa!***Issue * *:***The tittles on HDD can be protected individually.**QUESTION:**How can I protect the individual title on DVD?***Issue * *:***I loaded the new “MDR***H*F*” unit with a DVD that was previously recorded on “ZV***MW*A” and had almost five hours of taping space left. When I tried to tape on this DVD, a new title, it gave me a message stating that “the DVD is already finalized”. I tried to undo the finalizing by using the media manager of the home button, it will only activate the option of “INITIALIZE”! I do not wish to initialize the DVD as will it lose the important title that was already recorded using “ZV***MW*A”. It will not activate the option of finalize!***QUESTION:**So tell me how can I undo the finalizing of this DVD?**************************************************************************************************************************************************************Time here in USA is “NOON on Friday, June *th.
