    How Do I Make A Blu-ray Dvd-r From Eyetv ?

    Too bad about the BD on DVD. I once burned a DVD data disc with a HDDVD folder (from my EyeTv file) and took it to Best Buy and played it on the Toshiba player. You may want to add your experience to http://www.videohelp.com/dvdplayers, where they list which DVD players play what. For playback on my HDTV, I use the Klegg MediaShareMega. I can play a 1080i EyeTV file directly from my computer through my router with no stuttering. It's only US$130 without a hard drive (which I don't need) and has a 5.1 output. I do have to convert it (8 min/hr) to get the Klegg to recognize the audio, even though it reportedly has an AC3 pass-through mode.

    You're right. The list looks like it should do what you want. However, this may be a wish list and only true after some some upgrades. Did you try playing some non-HD video (MPEG2, Video_TS, etc.) on a DVD-R data disc? I don't have a Blu-Ray player but my DVD player will play the video from a non-HD .mpg file exported from EyeTV onto a DVD-R data disc. It can't see the AC3 audio imbedded in the file, so no audio. I'd like to do exactly what you're doing after I invest in a Blu-Ray player. But soon after that I'll probably invest in a Blu-Ray burner for my Mac, they're finally under US$500, and hopefully this will all be academic.

    Mac OS error code -50 burning from EyeTV

    First export to Toast from EyeTV, then choose "Save as Disk Image" under Toast's File Menu. You may need to double-click the image to mount it. Then launch DVD Player and open the files in the VideoTS folder. When you're happy that all is well, you can drag the image into Toast, open it from the File Menu, etc. Then burn as normal. BTW, this is necsaary to burn files larger than 4.3 GB (on Dual Layer disks).

    Slow UJ-846 Toast 7.1 and Core 2 Duo

    Just a postscript from my post in another thread. OK gang, this problem has been around for over a year, it's a hardware issue, and Apple knows about it. The solution is simple, but not even Apple (via their so-called Genius Bar) seems to know it. You can get Verbatim "Digital Movie" DVD-R's at Best Buy for $17/25 that Toast will burn at 8x. In my opinion $.68 is a great price, considering you're actually getting great quality media. The drive used in the recent iMac's and laptops are very picky about the quality of the media. This is not a conspiracy by Apple to sell blank disks even though Apple branded DVD-R's ($35/25) will burn at 8x. There are solid technical reasons why the good Verbatim disks will work as well as the Apple disks - they're made by the same people, at least the ones sold in the US. See http://www.digitalfaq.com/media/dvdmedia.htm for the details. The bottom line is Mitsubishi makes the best blank DVD's right now. Apple buys their present supply from Mitsubishi and all of the Verbatim disks sold in the US are made by Mitsubishi. The other brands could be made by any of a number of different manufacturers, some great - some lousy. BTW, I've seen this question so often this year in various forums and forms, that I think that this should be in the Toast FAQ.

    Toast Burns From Eyetv With Wrong Or No Sound

    You shouldn't have to export. However, you may need to right click the .eyetv file and choose "show package contents". I don't have ffmpeg installed, but use this trick to go strainght to MPEG StreamCLip. HTH

    Slow UJ-846 Toast 7.1 and Core 2 Duo

    Just to close it out. I haven't had a media problem in years - since I've always bought brand name premium discs. Until Now. After trashing the plist and re-setting the preferences, I finally got it to burn at 8x (closer to 10x really) using the Apple brand DVD-R 8x disks. That's the only ones that I found to work so far (at $4/each). I'll search some Mac hardware groups and see if anybody's found some cheaper ones that work at 8x.

    Slow UJ-846 Toast 7.1 and Core 2 Duo

    Thanks - I only expected to get 8x. I only realy got 4x on the Pioneer because of buffer underruns - the G4 just didn't have the horsepower.

    Slow UJ-846 Toast 7.1 and Core 2 Duo

    I just replaced my G4 with a 20" iMac Core 2 Duo and let Migration Assistant transfer my applications and files. Toast 7.1 came over OK and seems to do everything that I've asked of it. However, it only lets me burn DVD's at 2X. The CD's burn at 24x. It used to offer to burn DVD's at 16X on the Pioneer DVR-10 in my G4. I saw the earlier post about 7.0.2 that suggested that 7.1 would fix the problem. Do I need to uninstall and re-install Toast? If so, do I need to start with the original 7.0 disk and then update to 7.1 with the downloadable pkg? Toast 7.1, OS 10.4.8 (true for 10.4.7 as well), Matshita UJ-846.
