I assume what you get from a recording attempt is garbled video, or snow? Audio OK?

The first thing is to clean the video head. The best way is to do this manually: take the top cover off, and using a lint free cloth moistened with rubbing alcohol, or an electronic wash product, clean the head. The head is a rotating aluminum cylinder located near the backside of the deck assembly. The actual heads are at the bottom of this cylinder- you can see them- just place a finger in the moistened cloth, and turn the head a few rotations. You should be able to see some deposits on the cloth.

Which is better to record with SP or SLP?


HELLO!
The answer to this is simple....SP every time. That is of course you want to cram lots of programmes on to one tape and if that is so, then use LP.
LP slows the tape to half of normal speed and therefore sound and vision are slightly compromised. For maximum quality, SP.

Recording


I'm going to venture a guess that what might have happened is you changed the mode of recording. VCRs record in either short play, or long play, or even super long play. As the length of playtime goes up, the quality goes down, because for short play, a 6 hr tape will record only two, whereas a 12 hour tape will record four hours. More information is stored on the tape, so the quality of picture and sound increase, but a longer movie could be cut off. You can adjust the play-length with the sp/slp buttons on your remote control.

DSR 11 won't record DV tape to its end


You need to use longer tapes. The DER-11 is a DVCAM deck which when recording, uses a faster tape speed then mini DV. Think of your older VCR's. They had SP, two hours, and EP or SLP, which would be six hours. The SP speed would give a better picture. DVCAM is more like an SP recording except digital and a lot better. More information is laid down on the tape.

You'll have to jump up to the full size DVCAM tapes in order to record the full hour.

Speed


I assume by "last longer" you mean more record/play time.  The slp mode is the slower tape speed, which means longer record/play time.  The trade-off with the slower speed is poorer video quality.

As regards tape life, if this is what you mean- I don't know- tape life is often a matter of the quality of the tape itself.

My VCR is playing too fast


try recording on a blank tape and setting the tape speed to SP (standard play). you should also see options for (LP-long play) and SLP (super long play). I think your machine is stuck on SLP option. if no-go, look for a manual on the web.
