Best way to save TIVO shows to DVD?

by wahnula - 2/14/05 6:20 AM

Hello, I have several football games I would like to get off TIVO and onto DVD. I have captured the shows as .mpg at 720x480 using both my ATI capture software and Nerovision 3 software. Nero made a 9.9GB file, ATI made a 10.2GB file, both .mpg files.

When I try to burn to disc, Nero enters a six-hour process that produces an inferior quality DVD or an error message. FYI, I did capture successfully a 90-minute show direct-to-disc using Nerovision, but these games are 3-hours-plus, I'd like to get them on a single disc is possible, DL is an option.

I also tried to covert the Mpeg using VSO's DIVX-to-DVD program and DVD shrink and wasted an $8 DVD+R double-layer disc due to the cruddy quality.

I also tried to edit out the commercials using Nerovision, shortening the file to 2 hours and 28 minutes, but achieve the same overall results.

I'm sure I'm not the first person to want to do this, and I am frustrated because I consider myself a PC geek and run our office network, build PC's etc.

My system is an Asus P4S8x, SIS648, P4 2.53, ATI 8500-DV All-in-Wonder, 1GB Corsair RAM, 250 GB SATA HDD, Sony DRU-720 DL burner.

I own Nero 6.6, Roxio EMC7, DVDShrink, Veritas RecordNow, ATI's bundled Multimedia center, and several others not installed. Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks!

Tony
