FWIW, if you need to be able to play your archived recordings on most 
any DVD player, you can master a DVD at a resolution of 352x480 at 2400 
kbps video bitrate, 128 kbps audio bitrate, and get 4 hours of very good 
quality video on a single DVDR.

If VCD quality video suffices for your application, you can master that 
same DVD at 352x240 with a correspondingly reduced video bitrate and get 
8 hours on the DVD.
