I just got my PVR-250 and I'm interested in setting it up for optimal
quality, space use, and compatibility (meaning that I would eventually
like to be able to write files out to DVDs, playable instandard
players, without having to recode the stream.)
But I don't know what the different codec options are and what the
tradeoffs are. For instance: what is the difference between MPEG-2
PS, MPEG-2 TS, DVD, DVD-Special 1, and DVD-Special 2? Do they have
different quality characteristics?
To be usable on a DVD, I know that very specific codecs must be used
along with very specific sample rates and frame sizes. Does anybody
have a recipe to do this right off the bat?
