I am looking to purchase another laptop but wanted one that would allow me to capture streaming video and create DVD's that folks could play on their non-computer VD Player. I see some advertised with the DVD+, Some with the DVD- and (I think) some with DVD +/- and I am WARY. The guys at BEST BUY (and the like) don't appear to understand the difference(s) sufficiently to offer a convincing explanation. I was hoping for a LAPTOP that would allow me to capture stuff off the net (as it plays on my machine) an off the TV Cable an save it to a DVD that could, then be given to an average person with a DVD Player to use. Should I get DVD - or DVD+ or DVD +/- ? Is there a software package I MUST PURCHASE? Is there hardware I MUST PURCHASE? (in addition to the laptop!) BTW noticed some "Go Vols" comments here. Anyone from East TN? I'm looking to buy a place!
