I went ahead and upgraded from Toast 8 to Toast 9 as I was thrilled to see that Toast 9 has the capability now to edit programs recorded on Tivo. I'm curious as to how many other people are having issues accurately placing the trim markers even with the "Fine" check box marked? The left arrow key for me, rarely moves the marker I select to the left. Most often it jumps forward somewhat spasmodically I might add . I can see that the frames shown at the bottom of the edit screen become expanded (there are more frames visible) when the "Fine" check box is marked. I would expect that pressing the left and right arrow buttons would allow me to move through those frames one at a time in either direction, but this does not always seem to be the case. I would love to see the editing granularity be closer to what you get from Toast when setting up markers on a DV file. I realize that DV files are very large and not nearly as compressed as Tivo files, so that type of granularity may not be possible. However, before I switched to Mac, I used Easy Media Creator and could edit Tivo files at the frame level. This should be true for the Toast Video Player as well in my opinion.
Does Roxio have a hand in the development of the Toast Video Player, or is it solely developed by Elgato? And if development is solely through Elgato, would they correct this functionality since they are a Tivo competitor. I apologize if this seems to be a gripe session but I started off with Popcorn 3 which had the audio/video sync issue. Then I decided to upgrade to Toast 8 due to it's functionality which better suited my needs. It also had the audio/video sync issue (which has been fixed in 8.0.4.) Now I upgraded to Toast 9 to get this editing capability which seems shoddy at best (in my experience anyway.) I would hate to have to wait for Toast 10 to have this working. Or perhaps I'm just not using the editor correctly or my perception of how it should work is incorrect; this may very well be the case. If I'm incorrect in any of my previous statements or rantings, then I stand (or sit in this case) corrected.
