Just after a general opinion on this.
OK, so I am a geek and like to collect football matches. I record them on my Topfield box then edit them using various software and store onto DVD, creating menus along the way. Unsure why I do this, but its a little geek hobby I have!!
So as technology has progressed and physical space is become important (another 1000 disc case is out of the question!!!) I am considering converting the original .rec files to .avi's then simply storing these on a hd.
My concern is that from the original .rec file to avi will there be an quality loss. If I decide at a later date to back to hard copy (DVD) would there be further resolution loss from .avi to DVD?
I suppose only way to find out is to try it but just after a general opinion. With the WC on at the mo the toppy is working hard and would like to know if theres a similar person who does same sort of thing.
