Re: any one have DVD game recordings?

you can get on the fly hardware encoder, but they're pretty hefty (meant more for studios etc), it is a bit slow in software... divx encoding will take the files down to about 350mb/hour at dvd+ quality, and if you cut out the commercials, a game could fit on a normal cd...

Yeah. I'm going to work on encoding them to try and fit maybe a half to 1/3 of the season on DVD. It's a pain though cutting out commercials. This is going to take me a while.

the best thing to do would be to forget the computer and buy a stand alone dvd recorder and record the game directly to dvd as your watching it,theyre cheap now,I've seen them as low as 100 bucks on sale,if you dont have the proper video card they cost more than a dvd recorder,I think an ATI all in wonder 128 mg video card is about 200 bucks

You wouldn't need an ATI-All-in-One, but if you have the money, go with the hardware version.

Re: any one have DVD game recordings?

i am getting a new computer and i kno very little about this stuff, it is a.. and i quote "Hewlett-Packard Photosmart Media Center Desktop with IntelŪ PentiumŪ D Processor 820
Model: m7160n"

If anyone could tell me if this could do all that stuff it would be appreciated. the guy at the store told me being a media center it can copy and burn stuff that is copied. I can scedule recordings and stuff, but is 250GB enough to get a good number of games?

250gb is PLENTY for games. It's not a bad computer at all. I checked it out and you have a lot of processing power AND that sweet XP Media Center Edition.

Hey thanks, i hope to get this within the week, it seems perfect for my price range. I can't wait to start recording games and burning them. The only bad thing i heard about this is it doesn't have a good graphics card or something like that. I can buy one later right? but how much does that cost? No custimization on this like dells so i have to buy it the way it is and add on later.

Yeah, you can definitely buy a card later. Depending on whether you have AGP or PCI Express will determine just how good of a card you can get. Basically the sky is the limit on how much you can spend. I have a 200 dollar AGP card which is about the third best on the market (at this time).

Re: any one have DVD game recordings?

After reading the review of that computer, the on-the-fly encoding sounds like its going to be pretty good. The quality might suffer a bit, but it will definitely be awesome.

Thanks, Best buy has a deal like a 15" screen, a printer and the modem for $1080, i am gonna upgrade the screen to 17" for $50 and try to get a warranty and that will just about make me broke for about a year

Dude, if you can get one without the monitor. Do that. www.newegg.com has 19" flat panels for 250. Sometimes they are on sale and down to 220.

hey thanks i will look at that, the modem is for 1000 flat and i will be paying 120 for the monitor and a crappy printer( i have a few) so an extra 100 for a nice monitor might be worth it, expecially while watching my Skin games.

Yup. Not only that, you'll probably save money in the end.
