    Is there any way to convert an itunes purchased (Mpeg4) video to "some format" so that I can burn it to a Dvd which can be played on a Dvd player (TV)?
    thanks

    Yes you can do this, i have done it alot of times, cause the small size will fit on a standard dvdr easy. but beware the quality will be alittle grainy because your streching a file that is suppose to be viewable on a vpod to your screen size.. id suggest hooking your ipod up to your tv with the av cables you can buy for like 20 bucks.

    From Apple's FAQ:

    How do I burn my purchased videos to CD or DVD?

    You can burn back up copies of iTunes videos to a data CD or DVD. However, you cannot burn iTunes videos to a DVD for playback on your home entertainment DVD player.

    You are wasting your breath. They don't hear what they don't want to hear.
