Downloading and burning movies

Hi all, I am a newbie. I need some help finding out how to burn movies that I download onto DVD+R, and then getting them to play on my DVD player.
I use Limewire and Bittorrent to download movies, in fact I have just started this whole idea of supposedly being able to download and burn my own movies.
The downloading is not so much a problem, although it is extreeeemly slow. My real problems are knowing what formats are playable in my stand alone player, and how do I get the movie to appear full screen on the TV?
Help!!!

Assuming you are talking about legal downloads, how to burn it so you can play it in a stand alone DVD player depends on the format of the movie.

There are several tutorials in our forums for the various conversions here:
