[mythtv-users] Archiving Shows to DVD

The point it, you need to pay for Windows to use Windows software.  Being  
the poor, law-obiding citizen I am, I haven't had a computer with Windows  
for about 3 years (since I moved out of my parents' house).

If anyone knows of a good package for creating DVDs on Linux, I'd love to  
hear of it.  I currently use K3B, but I burn the raw .avi files, as my  
standalone DVD player will play them.  Of course, that means I can have  
about half a dozen feature-length films on a single-layer disc, which is  
great!

Perhaps that's your better option - my player's made by a company called  
Crystal and I think it's the DVX-??? model.  It was 30, but I'm afraid I  
don't recall the web site.

Hope this helps someone!
