I have downloaded the HD version from from BiT-HDTV (two TS files), is that the same source you used for your transfer?
By the way, what program did you use for the conversion? I have managed to convert those two TS files into one large MPEG2 file. Then I tried to convert it into DVD format with DVD Author, but that would take forever and my computer is not powerful enough to handle the process. Is there a way to just change the resolution of the MPEG2 file from HD to PAL, and convert it to DVD in a later process?
I already have the DVD-R version, I'm just curious about the process of converting an HD file into DVD. But I guess that you used a professional program that I couldn't afford anyway.
