Firstly, thanks for the reply and help.
Dreambox source DVB-S, simply recorded a movie from a digital channel received by satellite dish ( not high definition).
As I read you, the .iso can only be arrived at from an actual DVD in the first place and cannot be made from the actual .ts or .mpeg files?
Normally I would use a prog to convert the .ts files to mpeg then burn to DVD but the recent home cinema system I have purchased, JVC, does not seem to like the -R discs I use....always been Ritek and ALL play perfect on other dedicated DVD players I have.
I was told that most home cinema systems and DVD players will accept and run DVD's with .iso recordings so I thought I would try a few burnt with .iso to see the results.
Also I can, with the Skystar 2 PCI TV card and viewer prog , record directly in either .TS or .mpeg, but was told by several folk that the .ts recordings would result in less quality loss!
My main object is to arrive with a .iso image so that I can burn to DVD and test run on this home cinema system.
Whatever the source be it .ts or .mpeg, it would tremendous for a guide on how to convert these to the .iso format.
Again, thank you for your assistance.
