    Hello. When I convert my Hi8 tapes to dvds they seem fine on my computer, but when i play the dvds in my dvd player, they seem fuzzy and in poor quality. Is there any way I can fix this?

    Can you give any details about the conversion process? Hardware? Software?

    I use an encore USB video grabber with its Enmvg software. I use DVD flick to help with the DVDs

    Hi: I am by far no expert however:
    The computer is a smaller screen so should be clearer/sharper.
    I also found that going from analog to digital kinda blends in the details for a smooth effect which can also be interpreted as blurry.
    I also use DVD Flick, the free version and that doesn't allow you to use the other options.
    can you play around with the screen size/aspect ratio as alast resort???
