Look in the Idiots guide in the dreambox section and go to ts to dvd written by haggard. Also I use dvr studio pro to convertfrom ts to dvd.

Yes you need to create DVD files .VOB files before you can write to a blank dvd
I use NERO myself to create the VOB files and write the dvd. Works very well

DVDs use whats called an image so you need software to convert the video file and create an image. The only way you can create a DVD to play in a player is to use software.

Do you have windows or apple mac computer and what version of software do you use on it (windows98 windows2000 MAC OSX) ?

DVDs can be used to save files or for films. The same as CDs can be used to save files or music.
When you save the mpeg2 file onto your DVD you are only saving the file from your PC you are not creating a movie DVD. As I said before you need software to create a DVD movie image onto a DVD.
I have MAC OSX so can't help with software for a windows PC. BUT do you have a camcorder and software. Some software packages which come with camcorders can create a DVD for you. If not then try looking at the download sites on the internet and get some software to create & burn DVDs.

Did you not read this. And Dvr studio pro does it all in one.

I just burn the file as a data file (no conversion)
Plays OK on my matsui and bush
Depends on your dvd player
