    MPG files normally take around 2GB for a movie. The best way to get rid of this is to convert them to DivX(avi) format. You can use Dr. DivX for this. This will reduce file size upto 50%

    yeah, mpg file formats are kinda huge when it comes to storing on your hdd, not practical. and divx is the best solution for you without sacrificing much on the quality. http://www.divx.com/divx/ is the official site for divx.

    Recordings from DVB (or satellite) channels are in MPEG2 format. This is equivalent to DVD format. DivX is a highly compressed form of video. Of course, the high ratio of conversion comes with a cost in the quality of picture. For a slow moving picture, you may not see a significant degradation of quality, but when it comes to action or fast moving scenes, the quality degradation is higly noticeable.

    Another alternative is to convert it into MPEG1 format. This is format used in VCDs.

    But my suggestion is to leave it in MPEG2 format and save them in DVDs (or even in VCDs). These blank medias are very cheap these days. A blank DVD may cost you around $1. The minimum size of a blank DVD is 4.7 Gigs. This means you can save 2 full movies in one DVD. That way, you will keep the full picture quality and also you can play them in stand alone DVD players.

    video encoding takes a lot of CPU muscle and more hdd (your RAM of 1G should be ok). inorder to convert your mpeg2 to vcd compatible format, i suggest you getm TMPgenc and strip it to audio/video bits, then recompile this audio/video bits to form your mpeg1 file. after which, you should be able to use Nero to burn it as VCD format.

    and as suggested, leave the mpeg2 format alone, just buy extra hdd or burn directly to dvd if you have one. saves a lot of headache and cpu time (you can't possible record while conversion is on-going so you might miss some programs).
