4 hours on a single layer disc is possible but the results will be less than VHS quality. Digital loss in quality is very different than analog loss. It will look blocky and pixelated.
In some instances its possible to record 360 x240 resolution, which is half the broadcast resolution of 720×480. Don’t ask me how to do it. I never use it. I have fit 2 hours and 10 minutes on a single layer with excellent quality.
