    Hello all,
    I have a Dishnetwork DVR 1500 Digital Video Recorder & I want to convert some of those TV Shows to a DVD Video Disk.
    I have an OSPREY 100 Video Capture Card with VID CAP Capture program that installs the Osprey Drivers.
    I tried to Capture uncompressed & it took around 1gig per minute-so I Captured again with VIDCAP-this time I used DIVX 5.1 Codec & this time I got 30minutes of video at about 118MB.
    I read the guide at
    I am still NOT SURE if this guide applies to what I am doing...
    I am still in the process of waiting on TMPGEnc to encode my file- the last part of that guide where you burn to disk-got a little vague.
    What is the BEST way to put these TV clips on a DVD Disk to play in my Standalone DVD Player connected to my TV??
    Some of these TV clips are 30min shows that can be downloaded at http://kcm.org/media/webcasts/index.php
    There you can download these programs in .wmv format.
    WOuld it be easier to download these programs & convert them somehow to .mpeg2 format & make the DVD movie disk??
    Someone PLEASE show me how I can do this task easier.
    Many thanks!!

    There's a Yahoo group called Dishrip with resources and instructions for getting files from a Dish Network DVR. I think their resources are specific to certain models so I don't know if it will help you, but it's worth a try.
