Is this media now outdated? I have a panasonic dvd recorder of which I've used to record 100s of DVDs in this RAM format. I used RAM because it was so much easier to edit the recordings. But now I'm having a difficult time finding a new dvd recorder that supports this format. A few months ago I bought a Panasonic DMR-EZ48V so that I could upgrade to HDMI and it just doesn't have the flexibility with recording RAM as I was use to. It accepts RAM, but its editing functions are very limited. Plus I'm having the freezing issue so many people have complained about. Is there a reputable unit that records and plays RAM and is HDMI?
