    The best compression would of course be none. But seriously, my experience has been that anything under 60% will give you very good to excellent quality. Many movies that are under 2 hours will not have to be compressed at all. If a movie has both Dolby Digital(DD) and DTS you would be smart to choose DD because it doesn't take as much space on the DVD and sounds just as good. At least to my ears.

    And what programs would those be?


    Everyone's personal tastes differ as to what is acceptable video quality and what isn't and it also depends on the quality of the eqipment you're watching the copies on. You'll get away with alot more compression if you're watching them on a 27" standard television as opposed to an HDTV that will show video degradation much sooner. I'd suggest getting a couple of rewritable discs and do some experimenting to find out what looks best to you.

    This is all to be considered along with kyrainman's very good advice :)
