Hi, and thanks for the offer.
I record shows onto a hard drive DVR that has a DVD Recorder on it. I copy each episode off the harddrive onto a DVD-RW (Standard 720x480 DVD resolution) and then edit the raw MPEG2 file removing all the commercials usually leaving me with about 42-45 minutes of video. Depending on the series, I usually try to archive them placing 10-13 episodes on 1 Standard 4.5GB DVDR. I used to do this in AVI format with old versions of Handbrake by dividing 4400 by the number of episodes I had and using that as the "target size." I am not sure what 'CQ' setting I should be trying to keep my files at similar quality (obviously not the best quality available, but good enough for my archiving needs.)
So assuming 13 45 minute episodes (585 minutes) at DVD Resolution, what CQ should I be trying in 0.9.6 to get similar quality results?
