Google the program avi2dvd. All you need is avi2dvd and a dvd burning program like nero and you're good to go.<br><br>
P.S. Avi2Dvd will take very long to convert the video so start it when you are about to go to sleep. And make sure you have the latest xvid and divx codecs installed or u might run into problems while converting.

You might want to consider upgrading your DVD player to one that can play divx if you plan on downloading TV shows a lot. That way you can keep them in divx format and fit more episodes on one DVD. Plus it will save you a lot of encoding time. I picked up a Toshiba for $50 and it is great for this purpose.

Stoik imaging has a free download converter, its minimal, but will handle .avi files. I have had problems with certain avi formats and burning onto a DVD with older software(roxio easy cd creator 5); like avi2dvd it converts the files to similar and different formats. Again, its takes a long time and have lots of hard drive space available. If avi2dvd gives you problems consider this as a backup.
