I want to burn 1920x1080 mpg files to dvd.
The hd mpg file looks great on my computer, but it looses a lot when burned to dvd.
Is there another format i can save in to burn to dl dvd and not loose quality,but still be able to play on a standard dvd player?

Your only option may be to create a DVD-Video disc, and that will force the video to be converted and resized to SD resolutions (720x576 PAL, 720x480 NTSC, maximum.)
Even if your DVD player can play MPEG videos as it would AVIs, from a data disc, the DVD player would likely still not be able to view videos higher than the resolutions above - in other words, no HD video.

yes if you buy a blu-ray player. no for your standard dvd player. you'll also need a hd 1080 tv.--

Thank you both.
THE BEST RESULTS I HAVE GOTTEN SO FAR IS BY OPENING THE CAPTURED 1920X1088 MPG IN WINDOWS LIVE MOVIE MAKER AND SAVING IT AS A WMV USING THE BURN TO DVD OPTION AND BURNING IT TO A DL DVD AS 720X480.
RESULTS ARE ACCEPTABLE BUT NOT TRUE HD AND NOT THE BEST.
ANY IDEAS ON HOW TO IMPROVE THE RESULTS?

Thank you john. Can't you play avchd on d/l dvd on a standard dvd player?
Nope,you need a blu-ray player capable of playing dvd-avchd,regular dvd players are limited to 720x480/576 and only read dvd video and maybe divx/xvid files of 720x480/576 or lower.I think,therefore i am a hamster.
* Blu-ray player must be "AVCHD disc" compatible.
Technically, AVCHD™ uses AVC compression only according to the specs , but a file using typical MPEG2 MP@HL profile compression on DVD5/9 should play in most blu-ray players if it adheres to the bitrate limitations
You're using the "AVCHD disc" term loosely, but it refers specifically to DVD5 or DVD9 media using AVCHD (h.264) compression . The "AVC" in AVCHD refers to Advanced Video Codec, or MPEG4 part 10, not MPEG2 or VC-1.
What you are referring to is the unoffical "BD5 or BD9 disc" , which can use h.264, VC-1, or MPEG2 compression, much like official blu-ray (BD25 or BD50)
Regardless, Blu-ray players with "AVCHD disc" branding all seem to play MPeg2 and VC1 equally well*.
Anyone know if Blu-ray has been standardized by ITU or SMPTE? If so, do they mention AVCHD disc?
* but many won't play AVCHD camcorder files over 18 Mbps from DVDR media. Some will play "Full HD" 24 Mbps but most won't play Panasonic 1080p60 28 Mbps files.

The two companies have also developed licensing programs for playback appliances and PC software in addition to the one for video cameras, so that environment for playing back AVCHD content will be expanded. This will allow users to enjoy shooting high definition footages with their camcorders and playing them back or editing them on a wide range of products.
Licensed Product Category for the “AVCHD” format and logo extend to the following
- AVCHD format and logo license for Video Cameras
- AVCHD format and logo license for Players
- AVCHD format license for PC Software
Does anyone have an opinion on whether your "average" Blu-ray player is more likely to be able to play MPEG-2 authored as BD5 as opposed to just burning as a data disc?
RE: AVCHD disc
The AVCHD camcorder format includes provision to write an AVCHD BDMV folder to DVD media (e..g. 3" DVDR discs) but makes no claims for compatibility with Blu-ray players. The AVCHD camcorder video codec is limited to h.264.
The Blu-ray disc association specifies all players be compatible with MPeg2, h.264 and VC-1 video codecs. All Blu-ray players are required to play DVD and DVDR media at 1x speed.
There was a proposal by Warner Home Video for BD5 and BD9 pressed to red laser DVD media. This proposal did not make it into the final Blu-ray standard.
Formal documentation lacking for the AVCHD disc.
Sony AVCHD disc logo
The "AVCHD disc" is an extended feature for certain Blu-ray players and is loosely defined by Sony and Panasonic as BD media (BDMV) recorded to red laser DVDR discs. So far I've found these restrictions stated but not well documented.
The BDMV folder file names will use all caps and 8.3 file name conventions. For example *.m2ts becomes MTS.
The max bit rate is listed in various places as 17 or 18 Mbps. This corresponds to ~2x DVDR playback speed. Some players will manage 24 Mbps (~3x playback speed).
Audio is limited to AC3, PCM and mp2 however some players work with other audio formats.
Although not stated, MPeg2 and VC-1 seem to play on most players when wrapped with MTS (m2ts). 30fps AVCHD Lite (frame doubled to 60p) is not supported by most players.
There is an AVCHD Version 2.0 proposal for camcorders that extends the AVCHD camcorder format to include 3D-MVC, 1920x1080 50p/60p @ 28 Mbps and AVC Lite 1280x720 25p/30p (frame doubled to 50p/60p). There is no corresponding Blu-Ray player spec.
Then there is this rumor that Sony will be updating certain Blu-Ray players to support AVCHD 2.0 with a firmware update in coming months.

Hi Guys, i am currently using Pinnacle studio 15, im having some problems getting my videos to look hd
after burning them while they are in mts format.Do i need a blu-ray dvd writer to burn hd, is there an
hd blank dvd to support this or do i need a capture card to capture from the camera directly.I am currently editing them in raw mts & then burn my project onto a standard 4.7gb disc using 1980x1080 50i, 25fps. which i download straight from the sd card
The video does'not look hd on flat screen tv & the quality the far poor as the original
files.please can anyone help.

You're kind of glossing over the information I'm trying to get to. If it's playing on a regular DVD player as a regular DVD then you have downconverted on output. If it looks the same from the DVD player and the Blu Ray player this is almost certainly the case.
Pinnacle should allow you to do a Blu Ray output to a standard DVD -- in which case it will play on the Blu Ray player and not on the DVD player. Try that.
You want to output your movie to a DVD disk in AVCHD format. See page 342 of your manual for more detail. This will not play on any DVD player, only the Blu Ray.
is there another format that i can use to burn the project on, and get it to play like hd while playing it
on a standard dvd player.
No. Re-read post 25.
will a hd disc help & does a standard dvd except it.
No again, DVD players and disks are limited to standard def. Media Players like WDTV, Blu Ray Players and some game consoles give you more options.
