I am using the default settings for the most part on the mp4 setting. I record OTA programs much like a vcr (of course). Mostly seasonal movies (1.5 hours long) and the mp4 encodings are HUGE…1+gb or larger after encoded. It is standard OTA and not hd programing. Mostly i think they are 720 max but mostly 480. I cant figure out how to make the files turn out smaller. Most things i have seen for 1.5 hour movies should be around 700mb or so.
Is there a trick or setting to shrink these down more without losing too much more quality?
