It is that simple. So much better than all those other websites that
are offering the Xbox 360 and making you complete six or more offers

Lite-on DVD Recorders – which came first?

I’m quite unclear on "which came first" of the Lite-on family of DVD
recorders. Does anyone know whether the LVW-5005′s came out after the
5002/5006′s…or previously?.

Also, the 5002/5006′s evidently have the AllWrite Technology, which would
seem to increase the versatility of these units.

Any comments on other major differences between these units I may have
missed on the Lite-On home page, and various opinions/reviews?

DVD authoring apps which do auto chapter points?

Are there any DVD authoring apps which will take an MPEG2 (which has
already been edited and encoded from DV-avi) and automatically find
and set the chapter points before burning?

Adobe PPro and Elements have an "AutoGenerate Chapter markers" feature
just after capture but before encoding/burning.    Are there any apps
which does this AFTER the encoding has been done?

Specifically TmpegEnc’s DVD Author Pro?

DVD Movie plugin into MCE

I’ve read that there’s a Sonic plugin (sonicencoder.msi I think) that was
included with some new PC’s that enables Windows MCE to burn a DVD movie
from one of its recordings- ie: a proper DVD movie, not just a DVD with a
dvr-ms file on it. I’ve done some searching but can find no such file or
plugin. Does anyone know where one can get hold of this file? or get hold of
a similar plugin for MCE?
Thanks for any help.

Please help —- TV capture convert to XViD good compression with high quality????

Can anyone who records TV please help???

Capture cable TV with Hauppauge PVR 150 with mpg2 hardware encoder.
Quality is OK for me but file size is large, i.e., ~1.2GB = 1 hour TV.
I have the DVP642 DVD player for direct play of captured results.  I
want re-encode or capture in XViD / MPEG 4 to reduce file size as
DVP642 can also handle this format.  

What is your source, satellite, cable, ???

What is your capture device, Hauppauge PVR 150, direct computer
capture, etc., ????

What program do you use to capture or convert to XViD?

Detailed settings and software / hardware please.
