It's Not The Monitor That Needs More Pixels...
..the quality of the DVD output and recording needs to be better.. If you're recording from the RCA cables, then much is dependent on the quality of the DVD recording software and the ability of the video camera to make high quality video.. There are usually options on the camera to record at various quality settings. Using the highest setting will allow it to take better quality movies..
In addition, many types of DVD conversion software just don't do a great job of converting to DVD. (As an example, I recently used a similar video camera to record some music performances of my daughter. AFter finishing, I tried three different ways to burn a hard copy of the recording.. One was plugged into a computer where computer DVD software converted the signal to a DVD.. A second was done using RCA jacks directly to a television DVD recorder.. And a third used the same RCA jacks and the companion television VHS recorder.. I'm guessing because there was less conversion necessary, the VHS recording was of better viewing quality on a television screen..) Try checking for different quality settings as well on the DVD recorder.. Most TV recorders can make high quality recordings of 1 hour per DVD or poor quality recordings at 6 hours per disc. The same goes for computer DVD conversion software. In addition, some software does a better job than others.. You may need to try different software if you're copying to a computer.
And still, it's important to remember, the picture that looks good on a 3 inch camera screen won't look as good on a large TV or monitor
Hope this helps.
