I have tried on occasion to use the non-reencoding options, but that
ends up having problems when playing back on my DVD player: the video
usually hangs after a cutpoint and I have to "jiggle the handle" to
get it started again (ff/rew a bit).
Given the quality of TV (ancient 20" Sears TV) and input source
(analog cable) and recording settings (2.5 GB per hour), I probably
won't gain much from using HQ instead of SP... but it still seems to
me there's a problem with the HQ setting that I'd like to figure out
