The MPEG file from the Replay is almost compatible with DVD. There's a
way to fix it with freeware, but I use the program "MPEG-VCR" from
http://www.womble.com/vcr-text.htm. You load the file (from the
Replay), remove commericals if you want, then save it (make sure it's
with a different filename). The result is compatible with DVD
authoring programs (I use ULead, which came with my DVD burner). You
may have such software with Nero, called "Nerovision Express". Nero
itself can burn the output from this program (make sure to select "DVD
video" and use the VIDEO_TS directory.).

Note that if you use Standard quality, the video will have the wrong
aspect ratio on the PC screen, but will play OK from DVD. I've done a
lot that way.

BTW, DVArchive 3.1 fixed a lot of the probems in 3.0. I still wish the
docs would tell you about 239.255.255.250. Your firewall needs to pass
it. That's why I couldn't get the Replays to recognize DVA for the
first 16 months of so.

What's up with 239.255.255.250 ? I've never been able to activate DVA
without disabling my firewall. Please clue me in.

239.255.255.250 looks like an internet address, but isn't. It's the
address used on uPnP (universal Plug 'n' Play) network packets. Your
firewall may be set to pass any LAN addresses (mine was), but isn't
recognizing this one. You need to set up a seperate rule for passing
it.

Before passing that address (which can be blocked at your router), I
could only get DVA to work on certain computers. On others, it would
hang (usually on the splash screen). If DVA did start, it would take a
long time to find the Replays, and be slow in a lot of other places.
Strangely, it would work once but never again until an OS reinstall.
The server (the part that shows up to the Replays) never worked.

There's another (unexplained) thing. When you stop DVA, it tries to
connect to 224.0.0.2 However, blocking this doesn't seem to be causing
any trouble.
