Depends what you have and what you want.
Captured TV does not play back well on a PC monitor so it is best burned out and played on a DVD Player.
Now I capture NASCAR races which are about 4 hours long. I edit it out the commercials and other stuff and then compress them to fit on a DVD. I use DVD+R if I want to keep them for more than one viewing or DVD+RW for a one time watch and then use the disc over.
Now for things like Hox watches, for instance a 1/2 hour Jerry Springer show (
just kidding Hox), cut out the commercials and burn out to a CD-R using SVCD format.
