PC Movies to DVD w/o a DVDR on the PC

I have a few movies on my computer in AVI format that I would like to put on DVDs so I can watch them on my DVD player in my house. Now, I don't have a DVD recorder on my computer, but I do have a DVD standalone recorder in my house.

The only way that I have been able to figure out is to play the movie on the tv via video-out and s-video cables from the PC, and then record the output with the DVD recorder using some more cables. This just seems like such a hassle, so I was wondering if anyone knows of a better way to do it,

if you have a cd burner you can actually make a VCD, it is lower quality, but you can do it. Ulead DVD movie factory 2, 3, or 4 can make these.

You could buy a DVD burner, or borrow one from a friend...these isn’t really an easier way apart from that... although can you go from s-video or video out directly to the standalone DVD player, without going through the TV?
