    Why would you want to bother? Seeing all the hype around BBC iPlayer, I installed it and downloaded a programme. The quality is so appallingly low that I couldn't watch it! It makes some of the stuff on YouTube seem like good quality.

    If you want to archive anything to DVD get a DVD recorder and record it when it's shown.

    You can use a program called tunebite but it will only work if your computer is fast enough,you need to select an mpeg template and it will only record the downloaded file in realtime(it plays the drm protected file in media player and then records from media player)so its a slow method.You then need to put the file created by tunebite into a dvd authoring program such as TMPGEnc DVD Author to create a DVD .

    I downloaded some of the BBC FOUR past pop programmes, using BBC I Player... The quality has be excellent. just as good as transmitted. They say is will be watchable for 30 days.... then what..? I await and see... meanwhile it is on my desktop to see if it disappears.

    I repeat the pic and sound quality is excellent, downloaded as a WMV file and easierly converted to a compliant DVD file using most suitable converters.

    I think you will find its only 7 days after you first play it also it is not a normal wmv file otherwise I would have no prob putting it on dvd. Pray tell me which video convertor Ihave have several and tried several more the best I can do is get it on dvd as data which is ok for pc but not player.Hence my query

    I'm surprised to hear the quality being described as excellent? I tried with downloading a programme I had watched the previous night so I could compare and viewed it from my laptop plugged into a 32" LCD TV. It was terrible! It showed just about every artifact known to affect video.

    I'd be interested to know what you have been viewing on.

    I would agree the qualty is fine on the pc surely a fairer comparison would have to be via dvd played on main player and tv the benchmark for any audio or video has always been for me at least, is it of recordable quality.Pumping it from laptop to tv may even be better than dvd I'll let you know if I ever manage to convert it
