I store most of my rax minidv's on my big media drive and they are around 15 gig/Hr. I have MainConcept Mpeg encoder and it has the option of encoding it in 1080i, but it doesn't look as good as playing the raw transfer that is 15 gigs. When Blueray/hddvd become affordable recordable media, will I be able to just transfer my Raw 15 gig file to the disk and play it? or will I have to encode it in something? Also, since the raw file is 15 gig, does that mean its res is close to 1080i to begin with?
