Video quality setting for DVD burning


I am wondering what quality setting is best used for recording video and putting it on dvd afterwards. I have it on setting 'Good' now, but when burning the video to DVD, Nero first has to re-code it. I remember that i had a DVD setting before version 4, that didn't require this. With that setting i could burn to dvd without having to re-code first.
In version 4.1 the naming of the quality settings seems to have changed somewhat i think....
Can someone tell me what setting is best to use for burning to dvd without re-coding?

XP Pro SP2, SageTV v5.02.90, Athlon XP 3000+ (FSB 333 MHz), 2GB DDR RAM PC3200, 36 GB Western Digital Raptor, 200 GB Western Digital harddrive, Asus Radeon 9600 XTR, Plextor PX-708 8x DVD-/+RW, Pioneer 120S 48x CD-RW, PVR 150 MCE (2). Hauppauge MVP.

The problem may not be with your recording setting but with the DVD authoring program. A while back I tried a whole bunch of the demo programs and the majority of them insisted on reencoding my mpeg-2 files, while dvd moviefactory that came with my hauppauge card worked great. You can also try searching the forums since the topic of which authoring or editing program is best often comes up.

I only use the DVD VBR qualities in 4.1.3 (dvd standard, long and extra long).

for 1h30m to <2h on a 4.7GB DVD, I think long play fits, above 2hrs is extra long....I think, all from memory. YMMV

I also only used ulead, I haven't tried nero for that.
