There are no DVD players that are readily available that can handle video at high def resolutions. So when you make a DVD it will look the same as if you shot the footage in DV. That’s what makes HDV so great. In the future there will be blu-ray/ HD-DVD players that will be able to show high def video from a DVD in all of it’s glory. There are ways to make a high definition DVD but it would only be able to play on really fast computers. Probally not worth your trouble. A standard DVD will be just fine for your friends TV.
