Can you record with these tapes in LP mode to get 50% longer duration (124mins)? Iíve spoken with APR Media and they seem to doubt you can do this with the pro series 83 min tapes.

Most of the LP tapes are useless on anything else.
The cost of repairing the camcorder is more than the cost of replacing all the tapes (with blank ones!), more than half the price of a new cheap camcorder, and (of course) much more than I saved using LP.
Had I recorded in SP, I could have bought a good used camcorder, transfered all the tapes to PC (should have done that before, but...) and sold the camcorder for the same as I'd paid for it.
As it is, I have to spend money having a 10 year old camcorder repaired, hoping that it can be brought back to life to rescue these old tapes.
