Some of you may remember my prior posts. I had eight 30-minute shows I captured from my DVR using the AVI format onto my hard disk and wanted to add to a DVD. The transcoding process took approximately 4 hours! But I was able to get all 8 shows onto one DL Dvd.
Then using what I have learned from this board, I figured since the transcoding process just converts my AVI files to MPEG2 files, I would just capture my shows in MPEG2 and this would speed up the transcoding process tremendously. Which it did!
However, I can no longer fit 8 shows (captured in MPEG2) on one DVD as I did before (using AVI). It appears that there's no way (using Roxio or Nero) to reduce the quality so that they can all fit on the disk.
I just want to make sure that this is true before I give up and just shorten the number of shows I put on one DVD. I thought it odd that the 8 AVI's after transcoding fit onto one DVD but the 8 MPEG's won't fit.
I Hope I made sense and you understand my noob-babble. This forum is a wealth of knowledge for me and I appreciate it very much!
