    Would someone be able to tell me how large the main DVDs of these series are? (A full disc backup)

    Or how much compression is required to fit them on one DVD5?

    I'd like to do a full disc backup of these series with DVD+R DL
    discs but I don't want to spend $200+ on DVDRs.

    I also don't want to split the DVDs, because that would be 100 DVDs per series. 50 is a lot better.

    (when do you think DL will become affordable? .75 each for example)

    I searched for this stuff but could not find these details, if you can, please let me know.

    Do you own the DVDs in question? If so, why not check for yourself? Sounds like someone plans to have a rental blowout.

    You may want to hold off on the DL backup idea. You might as well buy two of each set.

    4th possibly 3rd quarter looks like a good time for DL to come down in price(more and more manufacturers are coming out with dl media), but nothing is for sure.

    What I do on these to keep good picture quality is I put 2-3 episodes per disk. You will loose the menu's and things but who cares. Otherwise its going to cost you a lot for double layers. Splitting seems like the only option. You could compress them down to nothing. But it will look choppy. It would require like 45-50 compression rate.
