Example: I recently recorded a show on my COX Cable DVR and wanted a DVD version... so I found a DVDrip of the program and downloaded a sample clip to see if I could in fact burn it to a DVD (still learning the basics). The file was able to fit on a single DVD with all high quality settings and without the need for Nero Recode. The resolution of the burned DVD is disappointing and much worse than the TV version recorded on my DVR. I should also note that the TV version I have on DVR is just that... a basic cable TV version... no high definition or any other fancy enhancement involved. So why does a burned DVD copy of a DVDrip have less resolution or is there something that I'm doing wrong? P.S. I want to give a shout out to hobbit112 for helping me the other day... I finally got things to work and your feedback really helped. Thank you!
