  • Hi. I have a xw350 HDD recorder which allows me to record off air tv programmes in many different speeds, DR, XP, SP, LP etc. I recently helped a friend install his new xw385 recorder but cannot record off air tv programmes in anything other than DR mode. Is this normal? He does not wish to record from the AV inputs which would allow him to change the recording speed. Please advise as he would like to be able to record all his off air tv programmes in LP mode which give vastly increased recording times. Thanks. Martin Ruffell.
