I've read some guides, looked around, and even tried myself, but have been unsuccessful in my attempts to author DVD's containing TV shows I already have on my HD. They have been encoded in Xvid format (most) and Divx format (a few). I'm looking for a program, hopefully in the sub $100 price range that can handle this process. Ideally I would like to be able to add simple menus and play the files in my stand alone DVD player. Not sure if there are programs out there that will convert, create menus, and burn all in one, but I figured I would ask. Do I need to get the files from Xvid to Mpeg-2 before I can author with a separate program? If anyone has had success getting their TV episode collection to playable DVD'd please help me out. Thanks in advance.
