I recently purchased a Sony VRD MC6 recorder and tried to transfer some VHS tapes over to DVD. I have one 3-4 hour tape that I need to fit on one DVD however from what I understand this means I need to decrease the recording quality. I remember seeing on a video that I can have 12 hours of video on one DVD. Right now I'm transferring the video on the Long Play setting however I think I'm going to need longer than that. How much more noticeable is the difference of quality with Super Long Play if the DVD is played on a DVD player? My DVD is labeled DVD+R if that helps any. All help/advice is appreciated!! (pretty sure this is the right topic, if not, please point me in the right direction)

Decreasing the quality on the recording to DVD isn't going to reduce the quality because recorded VHS long play or super long play is crappy quality anyways. So if the tape is 4 hours long, just set the DVD recording to whatever it needs to achieve that.

For shorter tapes just set the machine to record at 2 hours or less but you aren't going to get DVD quality no matter what you do.
