My dvd player doesnt play svcds, would mpeg-1 (vcd) encoded files work if i burned them to dvd-r? would svcd play ok from dvd-r? I dont have a dvd burner yet.. just trying to figure out the best way to save these shows.

Sounds like you might have to buy a burner and try it yourself. Though I can't for the life of me imagine why you'd want to try to save ANYTHING as MPEG-1; the quality is worse than VHS tape!!!???
