The Pioneer 105 4x DVD-R sounds like a good choice because of it's compatibility with standalone DVD players and low cost and good performance. I'll mostly use it to transfer home\\kids's Minidv movies to DVD.
How long does it take to burn a full one sideed DVD at 2x? Also, which authoring software is the recommended standard?
A Full 4.7Gb DVD will take about 20min or so. I've used Ulead Moviestudio which is pretty good...and DVDit PE. Pinnacle looks pretty good too...I'm going through a bunch of demos checking out different things.
On a bit of a tangent.... before burning the DVD, what's the best way to get the video into your computer - IOW, what video card would people recommend for transferring an analog video source (such as from a VCR)? This would be for PC, not Mac. And I don't care about DV, just a good analog to digital conversion of the video.
