I will add to that information by stating there _could_ be a foreign object inserted into the videotape tray. A million years ago, when a niece was visiting with her toddler son, I "kid proofed" all the open electrical outlets which were on the toddler's level by inserting "todder-proof" electrical outlet covers. A few days after the 2 left my home, I wanted to watch a videotape and found I couldn't insert it.
I took the VCR to a repair business, where the repair technician found a "toddler-proof" electrical outlet wedged into the videotape tray. Needless to say, I don't think my niece removed the cover and stuffed it in the videotape tray.
Six episodes in season two were shot on videotape because CBS felt that after season one, ratings didn't match the expense of production, and they thought that videotape would be less expensive to use. But, the quality wasn't as good, shootings could not be done on location, and four cameras had to be used at one time. So, ultimately it didn't save them money, and they returned to using film.

Please, ask your videotape provider, whoever it might be.
This is an issue with your whole system. The cam catches the picture then has to transmit it to your pc. Your pc then has to process the image and display it. The main bottleneck is the method of transfer of the data, mostly through the USB bus but depending on the age and spped of your PC, that could also be slowing things down.. You may be able to upgrade your pc with more memory and a faster cpu but in the end, you are still ruled by bus data transfer rates etc..
The bottom line is that you may have to live with the delay.
If you have another VCR system (Master) you can connect it from the master to the Panasonic DMR ES15 (slave). Insert the copyrighted tape onto the master VCR system and insert a empty VHS tape on the slave system. In the slave, record from the master. When done, you can record from the videotape you have made from the master tape, to the DVD recorder.
If you still have problems, please contact the manufacturer of this model.
If you are trying to record vhs tapes to the dvr side, first you need to get 1x up to 8x DVD-R dvds. You can find them on ebay. The machine has problems recognizing the up to 16x type. Put the blank DVD in and let it load. Then start playing (not dubbing but playing) the videotape for at least 6-8 seconds. If you have somewhat of a lead-in on the videotape you can let it go even 10 seconds. Only after the videotape has been playing for this period of time, press the dubbing button. If the error code does come up, rewind the tape and start again, but in most cases the error code will not happen if you do it like this.
Yes, and it is highly recommended to do so. Hitachi’s DVD-Camcorder has an advanced analogto-digital conversion system. By using the analog Audio/Video input on the camcorder, the tape based information is converted into digital data and is then recorded onto the DVD disc. See manual instructions for switching input from Camera to Line-In.
