    Does any of you computer wizards know of any software that is available that will enable me to burn direct from video capture to DVD-R disc so that i could use my dvd writer as a high quality vcr (mines just about had it now) any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    All the best Splice;)

    Wouldn't it be easier to record to Hard Disk then copy over to DVD afterwards? Current HD sizes should easily allow you to store one DVD's worth of data.

    I would have thought that writing to a DVD live wouldn't be able to keep up with the video stream data trasfer rate

    Thanks for the replys, i have heard that there is software that allows buffering to the hard drive so as to allow direct burn to disc. the reason i wanted to do this was to see if was a vaiable alternative to using a vcr, it obviously hinges on what sort of quality i would get. I can already copy tv to the hard drive and then burn them to disc but this is time consuming and somewhat defeats the object. Since puttting this message up i have heard a program called neodvd does what i want but quality is an issue apparently, so i will see if anything else comes to light before comitting myself. i would download a demo of neodvd to try but can't find one anywhere. If anyone has any idea where i might find it let us know. Thanks again.

    All the best. Splice.;)
