    How do I convert a torrent that I downloaded into something that looks
    good on a DVD? When I finished downloading it (Rescue Me - Season 3),
    it looks fine when I watch it on Winamp, but when I convert it to a
    DVD, the picture looks terrible.

    I was using dvdSanta and ConvertXtoDVD to create the DVDs and they
    look horrible. Can anyone tell me how to convert this torrent into a
    DVD that looks as good as it does when I watch it in file form on my

    Thanks a million.

    usually just making temporary copies to watch TV shows that I missed,
    but so far I've got no complaints about the quality (this is all
    assuming you're staring with divx-encoded .avi files).
