HD(V) to DVD

First of all i apologize for asking a question that must have been asked by now, I just couldn't find it by searching thought so here I am asking, and it's a rather amateurish question I think.

So I made a short feature film on Canons XH-A1, edited it n Premiere CS3, and here it is in high quality mpeg2 sitting on my hard drive. However, whenever I want to put it on a DVD disk, the quality playing on the disk is much much lower then on the file I've exported through Premiere. It's all blurry and mushy and I really don't know why. I've used Adobes Encore, a bunch of freeware stuff, nero vision, and I simply can't get a decent quality on a DVD.

Please help.

EDIT: Have I posted in the wrong place?

Your timeline is showing on your monitor as a high definition edit, yet if you've encoded it to DVD it must now be in standard definition so will be as you say, 'much lower quality'. It shouldn't really be 'blurry and mushy' though, so can you tell us more about your downconversion and DVD authoring?
