8 DVDs?  I only ever download the latest netinst image (180Mb) from 
http://www.debian.org/distrib/netinst and then install anything and everything 
else from mirrors.  The sources I use are:

deb http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://mirror.linux.org.au/debian stable main non-free contrib
deb http://mirror.linux.org.au/debian testing main non-free contrib
deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org testing main

but YMMV
