    Recently I was trying a DVD recorder with a Hard drive.
    It had a DV editing function so I was interested to find out what
    could be done on a DVD recorder compared to editing on a computer.

    I could dump all of the DV tape onto the hard drive then delete the
    parts I didn't want but I found short delays of the picture freezing
    at the sections where I had removed video. I sort of delay you get
    when you press the Next Chapter button on the remote control.

    There was an option to select the in and out points of only the video
    on the DV tape that I wanted to copy. The problem is that I had to do
    everything in one session as I could not save the in and out points
    like you can on a computer and continue editing later.

    So at this stage there are only very basic editing that can be done on
    DVd players (I think most DVD players would offer the same amount of
    editing function as the Sony DVD recorder I was testing).

    For a quick copy of a DV tape to DVD the DVD recorder is great as
    there is no time delays for rendering the DV video.
