Re: Do I have to watch the whole VHS???
It hasn't got a function called high speed dubbing or recording like a tape player unfortunatly cause the VCR needs to be able to read the VHS and if it had high speed then it would be like fast forwarding the whole time and would look really bad.

Is the VHS tape you are trying to record a commercial VHS tape (movie)? If so, it may have copy protection on it. The recorder is probably programmed to prevent you from making and using DVDs of commercial copy-protected VHS tapes.
Depending on the procedure you may be pressing the record button instead of the D.Dubbing or Dubbing button. When recording from VHS to DVD you must first, load the blank DVD and VHS home movies, then play the VHS movies, then PAUSE the VHS movie when you want to START recording... then the only the you have to do is pressing the D.Dubbing button or the Dubbing button. If your VHS tapes starts to play after the Dubbing button is pressed you have been successful in Dubbing.
Unless both units has stated high speed transfer capabilities I think you have to do them one at a time and watch the entire video. There are some units that are one unit for vhs to dvd. Panasonic is known to have some units but you are going to probably have to hunt for one. It will clearly state that it transferred compressed or highspeed.
I just got done recording a vhs to dvd and it worked great. Also you can print the manual at manualsonline.com or something like that.. google it, i printed mine. I had to watch the enitre vhs to record it. As you are playing the vhs (right at the beginning) push the blue D. Dubbing button then when its done playing push stop on the DVD side it will say writing to disk on the bottom once thats done ooha la!! I am trying to figure out if there is a way to dub a vhs to dvd without having to watch the howl movie but unfortunatley I don't think there is!
1. Insert a blank DVD disc in the DVD deck and close the disc tray. 2. Insert the VHS video tape you wish to copy into the VCR deck. 3. Find the place on the VHS tape from which you want to start dubbing using the PLAY, FF, REW and PAUSE functions. For best results, pause playback at the point from which you want to record. 4. Press the DUBBING button on the Remote Control or DUB on the front panel. The Dubbing menu appears. 5. Use the arrow keys to select the desired Record Mode: EP, LP, SP or XP. 6. Select [Dubbing] then press ENTER or DUBBING to start copying. 7. To stop dubbing at any other time, press STOP (x). Dubbing will stop automatically when the VHS tape ends.
