Trying to decide how to backup my hercules seasons properly. Each disc has 2 episodes at an hour and half long that each come out to 4 gigs per episode. To shrink to one dvd seems like way to much compression to use with mpeg 2 and I hate wasting/having twice as many dvds as the originals. Do any of you decide to encode to divx and put them onto dvds instead to keep better image quality? I'm most worried about longevity of using divx since who knows maybe a couple years down the road it might be harder and harder to be running a proper divx setup. Right now I'm about to compare encodes from the 50% mpeg 2 compression and the divx episodes at 2 gig a piece and see how much of a difference I can tell. Anyways, anyone have any thoughts about this or does anyone do something similar?
