Presuming you have the entire video on your Mac you shouldn't have trouble burning the entire length to disc presuming it will fit. If this is a standard-definition video then I'd be surprised that a 2-hour video would exceed the size of a single-layer disc. But if it did you can choose Save as Disc Image instead of clicking the burn button. Then select the resulting .toast file using the Image File setting in the Toast Copy window. Toast can apply its Fit-to-DVD compression to make it fit the single-layer disc.
If this is a HD video then you'll need to have Toast encode it to standard definition to fit two hours on either a single- or dual-layer disc. If you are wanting to keep this in high definition you'll need to break it into segments. I'm not sure of the maximum of TiVo HD video that will fit a single-layer disc but it probably is about 30-minutes. In this case you need to use the Blu-ray video setting which requires the Blu-ray plugin. You can break it into segments by marking start and end points in the Toast Video Player editor.

Thanks for the reply and suggestions. This is a HD program (World War - History Channel Series) When transfered to Mac, it shows 2 hrs in listing, but when launched with the player, it shows 1 hr and half the MB size. I don't see any way to decrease the resolution, only to move from TiVo to Mac. It is strange it shows 2 hrs, but plays 1 hr. The MB size is 1/2 of TiVo on the Mac. Strange.
Thus, I am not able to get to Toast to modify resolution nor Save as Disk Image with a full 2 hrs. I don't see how to break into segments, since it only appears to tranfer the first hour, only. This is the same for several of the 3 episodes of the series.
I am not sure if it is solveable. Maybe to upgrade to Toast 11, but not sure if that will work.
Any further ideas???
Thanks again. I would like to share the series with family that is interested in history.
