Looking For Specific Stand Alone DVD Recorder Editing Options...
Stand Alone DVD recorders are very essential for transfering the billions of hours of S-VHS/VHS home video that have been recorded in the last 20 years. The hourly rate a client with home video tape would be willing to pay will NEVER justify the cost of authoring Home Video footage in a computer environment, so the huge home video market is not that accessible to those in the duplication industy.

I find stand alone DVD recorders are lacking some key features and am wondering if anyone knows of any DVD stand alone recorders that offer the features I will mention below.

I am looking for THREE very important features from a stand alone DVD recorder and will appreciate any information that points me in the direction of who makes these three features available on their DVD recorders.

I need the DVD recorder to "skip" snow. This feature would most likely be found on a "combo" unit that would include a VHS/S-VHS player and a DVD recorder. The idea is if the tape hits snow, the DVD will cease recordering and then start a new chapter when a video signal is again present.

ON a non combo VHS/DVD unit, the ideal scenario would be that I can "assemble or insert edit" the snow out myself before finalizing the DVD. If I have to "erase" the last 2 minutes, or 5 minutes (or more) of a DVD before finalizing the DVD, can I do that with a stand alone DVD recorder? Can I edit out unwanted footage either throughtout the DVD before finalizing, or at the very least delete footage until the next chapter starts?

And finally, can a DVD recorder perform all the functions found in a stand alone CD recorder?

Just thought I'd bump this

Alessandro, I don't think you're getting any responses because your needs seem so complex and specific. I have a Sony RDR-GX7 and I don't think it can do these things. It does have some settings for reducing noise on broadcast and VHS material, but I've never used mine for this.

I agree, but what I am asking for are similar options to what many low cost VHS editing decks could easily do.
