Speed I was wandering how you can make your tapes last longer with sp or slp speed. I don't know which one, and I don't have my manual.

Re: 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.

Which is better to record with SP or SLP?

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.

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.

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.
