I'm (hopefully) not talking anything illegal here.

For the videos (like Lost) that you download from iTunes is there a way in the program to burn them to a watchable DVD?

We missed last week's so I sprung for the episode, but given my druthers I'd rather watch it on the TV than the computer monitor.

I looked through the iTunes help site but only saw info for burning data DVD's.

Thanks in advance.

That's a fair question - but I don't know the answer. Have you tried asking Apple? I've been happy with their tech support on the rare occasions I've had to use it.

You can't burn it to DVD through iTunes, and I think the DRM ties it to your machine, so I don't even think you can burn the file to disk. I don't know if a workaround has been found yet, but even if it has, the reports I've read about the resolution of the files is so low that it's a jaggy, blurry mess when blown up to TV resolution.

I downloaded a couple of Pixar shorts, and while they look great on my iPod, even blowing them up on my computer monitor produces some nasty artifacts.

I use Videora (videora.com) to convert videos to my iPod, and it handles just about any video I've thrown at it, so maybe it will work for you. But then you're probabaly talking about stripping the DRM, and that probably crosses into that grey area that the Zims don't like.

That's what I found out too. That's OK...we've got a nice monitor to watch it on.

Thanks for the help!
