    Is there a way to increase the original resolution of an AVI (for better picture quality) in mpeg2 format or mpeg4 that can be burned to dvd+r9 that can be played on stand alone dvd player to an HDTV,A sony 55" LCD to exact.

    Hi.

    Your AVI container either has divx or xvid files. When the AVI was created, a resolution was selected at the time of conversion from the source. There is no way to "increase" the resolution without going back to the original source.

    As an example, I have HDTV capture hardware connected to my system. A 1-hour show takes about 6.5 GB of hard drive space. If I convert this raw stream to xvid at a resolution of 1280x960, I'll get a xvid over 2 GB. As I reduce resolution further to 640x480 the size of the xvid will decrease to 700mb or so. Most xvids available for download will be of the lowest resolution to minimize file size. The video detail is lost as the resolution is lowered.

    Hence the reason we need need HDDVD or BLUERAY for the increase in storage. So i geuss i'm stuck with the same midgrade quality of my dvd+r picture.
    what dvd+r9 brand is going to give the results for burning.

    I only use and recommend Verbatim, but NEVER a DVD9 as I have NO problems fitting my movies to DVD5 without quality (noticeable) loss.

    I'll jump in for Gwen. There is no quality loss when using DVD9. What Gwen meant was that she is able to almost always get good quality when backing up to DVD5s by either compressing or just backing up the main title. If you want an exact backup of a DL DVD, you obviously need to use a DL (DVD9) disk.
