    A HD-DVD burner will cost you thousands...

    Well it isnt that much, a blu-ray burner can be had for about as little as $575 now. Not sure what a HD DVD burner would run, probably similar.

    I however do find it funny that people are paying $575 for these things that are going to be $50 bucks for a 5 1/2" drive in 2 years on newegg. And the $50 units will be way faster burning then what is avaliable today.

    Ahhh the price of being a tech lover :D

    Unless it is over about 3 hours you should get it to fit on a single DL dvd without any problems. The problem with DVD Shrink in this case is the movie is 14 gigs already, DVD Shrink will drop that by about 10 gigs. That may be a substantial drop in quality. Although DVD Shrink might be the easiest way since you won't have to screw around manually transcoding to mpeg2 or reencoding at a lower bitrate.

    You could shrink it into a double-layer DVD, ie. 8.5 GB.
