I just bought the Plextor Tv 402u unit for its DivX recording ability.
NOW I find out that in order to make a "DVD" I have to re-encode the material to an mpeg file???????
This makes no sense at all to me==time, file size, quality==etc. I just burned some divx files to a dvd and one of my settop players recognized the disk as a "Data Disk" and lists the files with thumbnails and everything. Not as "fancy" as a dvd menu but completely acceptable and avoids HOURS of work and errors.
((Yes the other older set top does not recognize the disk at all.))
Am I missing any other feature or quality of "watching a movie" on my tv that recording and watching divx files rather than watching a dvd???????
