Hello, I am very new to the world of PVR.

I download a trial of BeyondTV and could not get it to work right.
I downloaded a trial of Sage TV. I was able to get it to work, but I had to download a trial of PowerDVD to get a codec in order to be able to burn Closed Captions into DVD-R with Nero. The quality of the DVD's was on par with a 6 HR VHS tape. The original files and DVD-R's were set to 2 Hrs. = 4.4GB (Standard DVD Quality).

I am looking for better quality on the DVD-R's, but I must have the CC.

Since loading and seting up these programs is very complicated, thought I should ask first if I have any hope for success with GB PVR before mounting an attempt.

I have two Hauppauge Win TV PVR 250 's. OS is XP SP2. PC is Pentium 4 2.4 GHz. 1 GB Ram. HD is 36 GB SCSI LVD.

For those of you out there who are using GB PVR and burning DVD-R's from your recorded files, can you get the Closed Captions to Display if you play the DVD's on your TV ?

How would you rate the quality of the DVD when played back on your TV ?

Thanks for any advice.

Yes, closed captions will display on DVDs on the TV. Make sure you check "show closed captions" in the Misc tape of config. The quality of the DVDs is great. The bitrate is adjustable.

Burndvdx2 will take srt files and add them to a DVD when it is authored.
