You can save files as .TiVo or straight MPEG-2, but that still won't make a DVD that will work in most players. You need DVD "authoring" software to create the menus, VOB files, etc. NeroVision Express can handle that part of the job but I don't think it comes with the version of Nero that's usually bundled with some PCs. VRD TVSuite includes its own authoring package and you can burn the image directly or save it to disk and burn with something else. In my experience, 90 minutes is just about the limit for a single layer (4.7GB) DVD. Two average 1 hour shows with the commercials removed is just right.
