Sorry if this has been covered before but I couldn't find anything (quickly). I'm trying editing from the HD to DVD-R for th first time. I've recorded to the HD in XP mode and after cutting out the bits I don't need the total running time is 1hr 46. I assumed I could now either convert the bit rate or record mode or use flexible record to copy to the DVD-R but can't find a way to do it. Is it the case that using XP as the original recording mode I'm never going to get more than 1 hour on disk as you can't change the quality once recorded? If so does anybody else not find this anoying as I have the original recording on sky+ but with adverts its some 2hrs 20 long. I don't want to use flexible record with the adverts in as the space I can remove will mean a better bit rate and therefore quality once done? I also don't want to sit through it and manually remove the adverts. I probably wrongly thought that recording in highest quality and then converting down would give me the best outcome or does it mean I just need to do it all again in SP mode? Am I missing something or misunderstanding how to get the best quality on to the DVD-R? Sorry for the long post but any help much appreciated.
