How long does it take to burn tivo movies to dvd?


JenC

Question

Can anyone help me figure this out. I have contacted Dell, Roxio and my video card manufacturer upon the advice of Roxio that the problem was my driver needed updating. Don't see the link there but non the less they are updated. I download tivo movies and convert them to burn on dvd. The burn for each hour plus movie take me over 3 hours to complete. I have read online that with a burner of 16x it should take less than an hour. No one is helping resolve this issue. Can anyone help me please. These burns are killing me. Thanks in advance, JenC

What did you convert them to, and what program did you use to burn them to DVD? Not enough information to give you an answer, but if you did it through MyDVD, the encoding time souns about right for a slower computer.

Thanks for responding. I have an AMD dual core 4600, 16x DVD+/- RW drive on a dell running vista, new computer, less than 1 month old. I download the movies from Tivo and went to videos tab and selected convert video so it would change it from tivo to a viewable movie on dvd, I added the movie and selected burn, Thats were the burning takes 3+ hours for one video. I didn't know if I was doing it wrong or if that is the standard. I read something about endcoding and not selecting that, Not sure where I would do that but it make the burning process faster. Let me know if you need more info. Any help would be great.

It could be Vista, and I don't do Vista.

Sounds to me like the video has to be re-encoded before burning to the disc. That being the case, 3+ hours for a 1+ hour file doesn't sound unreasonable.

Thanks, now I guess I have to live with the time it takes, no one could or would answer me at Roxio, makes me really feel confident that the person knows the product. I believe I will ask the forum before I go waste my time with their tech support again.
