If you're implying that xcopy did a better job of transcoding than CloneDVD, I think you are letting your imagination play tricks on you, I've used both softwareâ€™s and definitely prefer CloneDVD. I have a 50 " LCD TV and at 80 % compression my eyes can't tell the difference from the original.
Either the 61 inch TV displays the flaws more, or I need to go to the optometrist and get fitted for glasses. :rolleyes:
If you don't want compression, you must either put it on two DVD's or spend the big bucks for dual layer, you have no other options. 8 gigs will never go into 4.7 without compression. Once in a while you will find a short movie that does not require compression, but that's the exception to the rule.
Maybe somebody else can suggest something that is better, but it all boils down to preference. Whatever people suggest, use it only as a guide, you will be the best judge what produces the best results on your own Home Theatre system. We all have different equipment, so the results may differ from what one person thinks is the best (including me), to how it responds on your system
As you say you are not satisifed with CloneDVD on your 61" TV, I am more than satisfied on my 50". Someone that is very happy with a programs performance may have a 25" TV, take that same burned DVD and put it on yours and you may not be so happy.
All things considered try to use some of the free programs or trial version and do some testing, this way you will be the final judge of what is good for you.
