Re: Question about standalone DVD recorders - AC3 & PCM?

In my experience, there are generally three major steps in creating a DVD video.

1. Capture (in this case, this info has been completely left out)
2. Compress. This creates and MPEG-2 file and the audio. You will set what bitrate you would like to use for the video, and what audio codec/bitrate to use there as well.
3. Author. This happens once you already have a DVD compliant MPEG-2 file (with embedded audio stream).

So, that sentence does make sense. In step two, you will take the video in whatever format is was captured in and convert (both the audio and video) to a DVD compliant format.
Through the clouds,
Throught the lies,
We'll never see,
What's never been,
At the ending of life and the coming of death,
Pass not through its gates but into the dark.
