The recording mode is closely related to the disc format. If the disc format is Video Recording format, then
the recording mode is VR mode; if the disc format is

Edits you make to the Original content changes the
actual content of the disc. For example, if you delete
title
a
chapter from the Original content (Title or
Chapter), that title or chapter is deleted from the disc,
freeing up extra recording time.
When you edit the Playlist, on the other hand, you are
not changing the content of the disc. For example,
when you delete a title from the Playlist, you are just
telling the recorder not to play that title; nothing is actually deleted from the disc.
