Burn them to Blu-rays instead of DVDs, and then they will fit. The only way you could reduce the size without transcoding would be to edit out the commercials. The iView has no control over file sizes. That's controlled by the bitrate the station has decided to use.

Hmm. I was afraid of that. I don't have blu-ray capability (and most of these movies don't justify the cost), Guess I'll just compress when necessary. I do edit out the commercials, but the finished product still runs long sometimes.
Is there any way to find out which stations broadcast at which bitrates? Or do they vary from one broadcast to another?
