    Just trying to get my head around compression ratios on my XS32. If I encode at the highest rate of 6.6 and say its a 90 minute recording what kind of size file am I looking at? I havent really experimented with archiving to DVD yet and I am aware you can dub the file to fit the media. Im pretty sure the XS32 will show file size as well?

    You need to use a bitrate calculator to calculate.
    It is very close, it will either just about fit - (bit rate of 6580 needed for 90 mins, assuming the audio is 192 Dolby). Note this is independant of the recorder... some may give better quality for a given bitrate, but the size of a given bitrate will be more or less the same.

    Look at http://www.videohelp.com/calc.htm
