    okay, so i have converting my xvid files to DVD using tmpgenc for a while now. now with all these new HDTV's and what not, is ther a way to convert xvids into a higher quality DVD? i meen, the process already takes me 8 to 12 hours so i dont mind waiting longer, its just that dark scenes on the dvd's are blocky and it gets annoying. is avi2dvd better? will it cut off any of the video or leave it the same aspect ratio? i just got a new widescreen samsung HDTV. lemme know :), thanx!

    Wrong forum for MPEG-2 encoding questions, but basically you don't get better quality than your source. You can deblock, but it tends to also remove other details. You can sharpen to enhance details, but it will also increase some artifacts, etc. Like I said the best you can expect is the same quality as your source and since MPEG-2 is lossy you can't even get that.

    Moved to correct forum.

    As celtic_d said, you can't really improve on the original. All you can do is replace one set of defects with another. The trick is to figure out whether the imperfections you're replacing bother you less than the ones you're creating.
