I am trying to take several episodes of some tv shows and make them into a dvd using iDVD however it seems i can never fit more than 2 per dvd. Has anyone done this that can help me shed some light onto how to achieve this?

In the menu go to Project>Project Info and under "Encoding" change it from Best Performance to Best Quality, this should give you more room.

Check out Project->Project Info. It should show you exactly how much space you are using up.

If your clips are DV, there's support for 2 hours of footage on a standard DVD.

Sorry, I wouldn't know. Have you ever burnt a full length movie in iDVD? I usually get up to 2 hours of video on a DVD, so I'm guessing you could get 5 or 6 episodes per DVD...
