(Please note: I understand current Church policy prohibits use of strobe lights.) Would you know where to find policy on this? Our DJ just bought some kind of stand lighting that basically flashes with the music playing. I found them disturbing when I watched them last night as I was getting dizzy ...

I'm not sold on connecting the clerk computers to the internet. All it would take is a one-time intruder to the information they hold. Wouldn't THAT make a headlline. Perhaps I'm overly cautious, but I tend to think of what could happen with a faulty install or that one time it messed up and someone...

In my previous stake, I had the user's manual for the DVR39* receivers, but I did not take a copy with me. If you really want the manual, I could see if I could find out who's doing satellite there now and see if they would send you a copy. Thanks for the offer, but it's not necessary! If I remembe...

As to indexing talks, I'll leave that to the librarian and a card catalog. I'm long out of library class. ;) The Casio disc printers look like a good line. Now to find someone to get them from (maybe direct?) I managed to get to Walmart yesterday and found another DVR/DVD Recorder combo, a Philips D...

As it turns out, I was mistaken on the brand. The unit we have is a Pioneer DVR-533H . It is listed on their web site in their "older models" section. The only DVR that they list in their current products is the DVR-640H . Thanks for the update. I like the DVR-640H-S much better than the ...

The particular unit we got is made by Panasonic and has a 60 GB hard drive which gives us 10 to 60 hours of recording time, depending on the selected recording quality. I use the 2 GB per hour setting which gives me a 30 hour storage capacity. This is the highest quality setting that I can use that...

Now THAT would be NICE! I like the idea of a hard drive!! What model recorder did your old Stake have?

This is allowed and has been implemented. My old stake still records 2 VHS tapes for back-up purposes but the DVD recorder is great since you can ususally make the 5 copies in about 30-60 mins (depending on how much you are burning). As for a VHS/DVD combo my old stake just left the old VHS's and b...

There has been some talk about getting one of the DVD Recorder/VCR combo units just to save the existing stock of VHS tapes we have in our library. :eek:

I think I'll see what I can find online. I still ask for comments on units!

Thanks!

DVD Recorders in the A/V room

I've been requested by the Stake Presidency to investigate the usage of DVD recorders to record satellite transmissions within the A/V closet/room. I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with units for this? Would a hybrid DVD/VCR combination be more beneficial? If you have been using DVD record...
