I currently record a few shows weekly on my Panasonic DVD Recorder (Panasonic DMR-E50) and then burn them. After that I upload them to my Powerbook using MactheRipper, I then encode them in ProDV25 (Or something like that; it's them iddle option) in MPEG Stream Clip. I then use iMovie to edit the commericals out, and then compress it in MPEG-4. Ok here's my problem: I want to purchase a 20 inch monitor, but when I watch these shows they will become pixalated, as they are 720x 528 or480. The monitors I'm looking at would display this at about 2.25 times it's original size. I figured out that MPEG Stream Clip is the one assigning this size and it's not changeable, as far as I know. Is there another set of applications (Or a single applcation) to do this process better. I think the problem is all three of these apps, as Mactheripper doesn't rip at a very high quality (Not bad, but not great), MPEG Streamclip assigns the smaller resolution, and iMovie isn't great at compression, even though the interface and tools are perfect for what i want to do. Perhaps even a partner application for iMovie would work. I'm willing to spend some money, i just have to know what to buy, and that I'm spending money wisely.
