    Hi guys, I have some tv shows that I downloaded on limewire, and I use DIVXtoDVD to convert them to dvd, and the use dvd shrink to burn them onto a DVD. But when I play them on my tv they look horrible, all blocky and blurry, like they were encoded very poorly. Is there anyway to make them look better? Thanks guys! I think their extensions are .mpg if that makes a difference and they are each around 50mb each.

    50mb for a tv show? Sounds like they were compressed way too much to begin with.

    Shrink is not a burning app, it will need DVD Decrypter or Nero to burn the dvd-compliant files...

    If you're unsure what the file format is, you can use Gspot to determine the file extension.

    Possibly, but the easiest way is to download the same files that are bigger in file size...maybe 345-355 MBs? The type of encoder used to encode makes a difference, also.
