    Is there any recommended software out there to convert HD .ts files to an SD DVD? Keen to covert something so my boss can take a look on a normal DVD player?

    Any help welcome,

    Thanks,
    Roger

    Yes you can do it, but I don't see why you'd want to. It won't be any better than a normal DVD, so why bother?

    It would make more sense to burrn the TS as a standard file onto the DVD and have the boss play it back on a decent spec PC on a standard monitor (which is likely at least to match 1280*720 and probably exceed easily).

    The difference between a DVD and HD on a PC is quite evident so just get him to imagine the difference on a 32" to 50" flat panel:)

    Thanks for the quick answers guys. svcd2dvd is exactly what I am looking for.

    Just to round it off, the boss is quite happy to watch it on his PC, its his missus that isn't. Anyway, I keep her happy with the DVD, she keeps him happy and he makes my life easier!

    cheers.

    So why bother downloading 4-5gig HD caps and converting them to an inferior format when you might as well get a 350/700meg xvid and convert it to dvd spec or just get an xvid/avi DVD player, either way you ain't watching HD.

    'cos I have them to watch in HD on my plasma which is great. Only doing him a favour by passing them on in a form he can view.

    Ah:)

    My mistake, read your first post and it seemed to indicate that having HD content for your boss was the primary incentive not just to let him and his missus have the latest ep of their favorite US show:)

    That's fair enough then, still might be quicked to download the SD versions and burn them to DVD, rather than re-encoding.

    yep, probably not being clear enough on the initial question!

    anyway, i gave it a go and the software is pretty impressive in its simplicity and ease of use if anyone else wants to do it.
