Does anyone know if it is possible to split a recording on the Panasonic DMR-EH67?  I recorded a show in SP mode, but its over 2 hours, so it says it wont fit.  I need to split it into two different files.

I think you can edit it into chapters and split it

I have a DMR-EH65 but I'm sure the 67 operates in a similar way.

Are you trying to fit it on a standard DVD?

If so it should have a mode to squeeze more than 2 hours on to one disk. The increased compression is imperceptible. The only drawback is it does the transfer in real time (i.e. plays the recording and burns to dvd). All you do is set it up to burn to disk and if the file is too big it will ask if you want to compress to a greater level.

hi, yes a standard single layer disc. i will try out the 'squeeze' method as mentioned. im guessing it would take it to the next level available, such as the 4 hour recording format? its a shame they dont have a 180min setting.

The is a record mode on the Panasonics called FR for flexible record which will use the best quality for the length of recording ie if you are trying to fit 2 1/2 hours on a disc it records between sp and lp to fill the disc
