    I just picked up an eyeTV Hybrid earlier this month and I love it. I have been recording everything and my hard drive is beginning to fill up.

    I've never been a big fan of watching this stuff on on my iPod, but am thinking of putting it on DVD by show. I was wondering if anyone knows how the quality looks on TV?

    My brother has an eyeTV hybrid -- at Christmas this year we watched DVD's burned from eyeTV output, and files from his hard drive, on a Standard TV (old style crt type tv -- not lcd, plasma, or projection) and the output looked great --near dvd quality for Star Trek, etc. Source of broadcast makes a difference, by the way.

    How To Compress Digital EyeTV Broadcast Recordings To Small mp4 Files That Look Great

    I'm an EyeTV Expert due to full time long time use (retired HDTV addict). I archive all my recordings with Toast then Handbrake to make great iPod compatible mp4 files that also look great on my 40" Samsung LCD HDTV. I recently wrote a great tutorial on how to make these files so you can reduce a digital hour show with commercials edited out from 4.5GB down to 350mb each.

    Here's the link to my tutorial on how to make great mp4 files from EyeTV digital recordings.
