Ok. Lots of choices are out there for DVD burners. Sony DRU 500a comes to mind (lots of compatility), Pioneer, etc. I know some variation of this post has been done before, but I wanted a handy and updated version.

With respect to archiving (and playing) Tivo extracted ty streams: what is the best choice out there. Disregarding price (I know it's always a factor but...) and availability (.i.e., sony 500a is on backorder).

Also, which format is the format of preference when burning.

Thanks for any and all input
