If you recorded at dvd resolution the time to make a dvd in
mytharchive would be significantly less. I changed mine and my dvd
creation times went from ~1 hour for a 1 hour show to less than 15
minutes for the same show and the quality of the dvd is noticably
better. I am using a hauppage 250 and a hauppage 500.
