My still-functioning Pioneer DVR 533H recorder only takes DVD-R, NOT DVD+R. I vaguely remember trying to put longer programs on DVD-R DL (dual-layer) disks years ago, and having problems with them -- can't recall what exactly. Would like to try again, but the discs don't seem to be available anywhere in the known universe. Anybody know anything about this?

DVD-R DL media has been discontinued in favor of the DVD+R format - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD-R_DL
i did find a 5 pack of DVD-R DL on ebay - https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mitsubishi-DVD-R-DL-New-Sealed-Pack-Of-5-Dual-Layer-CPRM-Clea...oAAOSwalxf3VZL and there's a few more DVD-R DL listed here that are mixed in with the +R format - https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=DVD-R+DL&_sacat=0&rt=nc&Type=DVD%252DR&_dcat=80135
As October pointed out -R DLs are all but gone, too bad as my Panasonic DVDRs really like the - format to +. Regular -R discs are very easy to get, -R DL again next to impossible.
