This should be clear, our homepage clearly states that video streams 
with HDTV resolution, higher than original DVD resolution (720 x 480 or 
720 x 576), are not supported by DVDSanta as of yet. Sorry, there is no 
easy way to convert this into DVD, and if you do it you will loose 
picture quality as this MKV has a better quality than DVD is capable of.
There are ways to do it, probably the best is Mediacoder from 
http://mediacoder.sf.net , but none of them is really like a one-click 
and go solution.
