I don't understand how it's lossy as I copied it straight from video tape using a Panasonic stand alone recorder. Can you expand? Cheers

A lossless single-sided DVD cannot exceed 60 minutes, and the audio must be PCM (not AC3). If it's longer than 60 minutes, that means you're putting more footage onto the DVD but compromising quality. So... technically, this could actually be a bit better quality if it was stretched over two DVDs. :)

If this DVD was put on Dime, within hours the torrent would be deleted, even though it's quite possibly the greatest Queen DVD ever... they wouldn't care.

Sorry for the offtopic, but Bob, is awesome!!!
