I fixed the lock up problem from the edit parts of the movie where the LDs get flipped. Before I was editting with MPEG2VCR and join the files back to make one big file. This was a problem with old DVD players about six or so years. This is how I fixed the problem with my Panasonic E80. I first recorder to the hard drive. I can record to DVD-RAM but have read that at the end of the disc the bitrate may drop to keep with the time settings. So i record to the hard drive first. Then dubbed to DVD-RAM there is no recoding going from hard drive to DVD-RAM. DVD-RAM or if you have a recorder that uses DVD-RW they use a VRO file. Ever thing is in one file system. I then went to the DVD-RAM and editted out the laserDisc flips. It deletes that part of the file you do not want. Then took it back to the PC and use MPEF2VCR and "DeMultiplexer" the file. Reason for doing this you can not play back the file right after delete after you do any thing to the VRO file. You also have to do this if you record in FR mode if you have two or more rcordings in the VRO file. Then I "Multipexer" the file to together. "DeMultiplexer" what it does it split the Video and audio into two files and "Multipexer" put the two files back together. There is a small light pause in the flips. But this copy will play in any DVD player that can play DVD-R. Also when the package was late I gave out two extra DVD's to make up for being late.

Here is a link. It seems that some people that work for George Lucas do have the original Star Wars trilogy made from the prints on the film. if the sets are available which I think they do. Sooner or later they will surface. Now for this post that this person says he has the original Star Wars trilogy take it with a grain of salt it may be true and maybe false.
I was thinking about doing a documentary about the original Star Wars trilogy. As in other fans what they like it more then a special additions. interviewing people from the mall and video stores and also just regular people that are fans of the original Star Wars trilogy. And why we are not happy with the changes of the films. And also show our unhappiness with some of the other products that fans have bought. example laserdisc 1989 and 1992 Star Wars release had widescreen problems. Also the newest Star Wars DVD has a 5.1 sound problem. and also the small line changes redits of Star Wars films that the common person does not know about.
this documentary could be downloaded for free. or sold in video stores around the world. The main point is too get a bigger push for the original Star Wars trilogy.
when Star Wars episode one came out George Lucas said that no DVDs would be released until episode three was finished. So he released it on VHS. A lot of people do not like episode one so he decided to release episode one on DVD two year's later. When episode two came out there were still a lot of people that did not like this movie. and after episode two a lot of people gave up on Star Wars. He knew that most people do not even care about Star Wars. to pump Star Wars up he released the Star Wars SE 2004 trilogy on DVD. And also gave us a bad soundtrack to a new Hope Star Wars with a bad 5.1 soundtrack.
George Lucasis is full of crap. he tells the media that the reason why he brought out Star Wars on DVD. Is that there are too many bootlegs. As we all know Star Wars fans have repeatedly bought these movies over and over again. And it is extremely rude to say these are the movies I want out there. with know consideration for the fans that have watched the original Star Wars movies for 20 years. They should not have to be a web site like this to preserve the original trilogy. Every other director except for Blade Runner has had two different directors cuts.
if George Lucas will not bring the original Star Wars trilogy to DVD. Then I just do not care at all. I do not like the man really that much any more. I did not have any problem with the special editions if he wants to do changes to his films but not to release the original films is arrogant in my opinion.
I want to say one thing about George Lucas is a very nice person from a certain point of view. During Empire strikes back George Lucas gave out $5 million dollars in bonuses. George Lucas has also adopted five children. So I think he does deserve credit where credit is due. But my views on Star Wars will always be the same until the original trilogy is brought out on DVD or a higher capacity format.
Now for the second way you can use FR mode SP is the two hour mode even after two hours it is still records if you do not turn it off but files get to big to fit on DVD-R. So I use FR mode record in real time. Return of the Jedi is 2 hours and 13 after the 2 hours and 13 minutes Panasonic E80 will stop recording. The great thing about FR mode is that I do not have to record in LP thats the four hour mode.
I can record Return of the Jedi in just SP mode but I have the lock problems where the LDs get flipped. Again this problem is onlly on OLD DVD players. But I want to make a set that any DVD player will play.
