  1. Can anyone explain how to to get more than one video and a menu on to a DVD so that it can run on a DVD/HDD recorder which is connected to a TV for display. Information about suitable codecs /containers would be helpful.

    Just use a standard dvd-authoring program. AVStoDVD is a good (and free) choice. There are others.

    There are many kinds of "videos". What codec/format are the video sources that you want to have on your DVD disc?

    Suitable video codecs for DVD are as follows: MPEG2. "DVD" is MPEG2. It can't be anything else.
    Suitable audio codecs for DVD: AC3 (Dolby), PCM (uncompressed).

    The specs for standard, universally playable DVD (PAL + NTSC): http://www.videohelp.com/dvd#tech

    If your source videos are already MPEG2 and conform to those specs, all you need is an authoring program and a disc burning app. If your source videos are not already MPEG2-compliant, they will have to be decoded and re-encoded (try AVS2DVD), authored, and burned to disc.

  4. Thanks DBB3 and Sanlyn for your helpfull replies. I have downloaded Avs2DVD and it looks promising. I have not had time to give it a good testing but I will report back with my findings when I do.
