Original file --> converted file

Have this topic also on cd-r zone but the site seems to be down (JJ - any ideas on that)
basically the question is how much can be loaded into CxD in original files before the conversion so that you know the output will be a full DVD’s worth.
Previously i’ve been putting 4.7GB or as close as in originals, thinking that the 4.7GB was the predicted size after conversion, seems i was wrong.
Yesterday i loaded in 6.88GB and converted file was 3.68GB. Would like to know, so that when converting a series, i could get a whole series on 1 disc, instead of putting 4 episodes per disc, as i have been.
Enclosed is the log file.

Thanks in advance for help:
