    Yes the Format you Create DVD"S out of are Mpeg2 files But Captureing directly to Mpeg2 isn"t usually a Very Good Idea quality wise, Most Mpeg capture Software is Not very Efficient with it"s Compression so you Loose a LOT more Quality Captureing to Mpeg2 than you would useing a High Quality Standalone Mpeg encoder....
