I'm not sure how to burn it, but can you please hit the Report this Post button on the show because the only DVDs we should have available for download here should be ready-to-burn DVDs.

Try re-writing the original file as a dvd with AVS video converter 3.5 or newer software.

AVS is a crap, and you get better result with a freeware: http://www.videohelp.com/tools/DVDforger or http://www.videohelp.com/tools/FAVC

Thanks Pawel. Do these also convert PAL to NTSC? Is this a replacement for TEMPGenc?

Yes, they may convert between PAL<>NTS. Both use HCEnc which is as good as free version of TEMPGenc, and it is more frequently updated. I don't know if TEMPGenc may transcode HD stream. Commercial version has a lot of troubles with H.264 format, so I expect that freeware doesn't support it at all.

convert x by vos/vso-----does great job on mkv files
look for mkv to replace avi in the very near future---kinda like shn to flac
lot less compression in mkv files

MKV is a container format and has no bearing on how compressed the streams within it are. It's commonly used to combine an x.264 video and 5.1 AC3 audio track but you could put any old load of MPEG-1 crap in an MKV container if that floats your boat.
