    Toast 11 -Dog Slow-

    Huh? What 11.0.2 update? 11.0.1 is the latest shown under support - software updates.

    Jon, For me burning DVD-R is also going 2x even though set to best, same as DVD+RW. Time remaining is about 1 second for every 7 seconds of real time. Nate

    Toast 11 -Dog Slow-

    Jon, I turned off buffer underrun and it made no difference. I am on a 2010 MacBook Pro 17" burning a DVD-RW and it is only going 2x when I selected best, used to go higher. And 1 seconds in the time remaining is about 6-7 seconds of real time. Nate

    10.0.5 breaks writing .iso image

    If I drag VISUALHUMB_DVD.iso onto Toast 10.0.5 I get a message "VISUALHUMB_DVD.iso is in an unsupported format and could not be added". If I mount the image and try writing that way I get all sorts of messages that look like hardware errors from the drive. This is on a MacBook Pro early 2008 running 10.6.2. If I downgrade to 10.0.4 it all works fine.

    flac --> AAC does not sync with iPod

    By the way, if you convert the same .flac files with Sound Converter and bring those .m4a files into iTunes, the iPod sync works just fine.

    flac --> AAC does not sync with iPod

    After upgrading to iTunes 7.2 and QuickTime 7.1.6 if I convert .flac files to AAC VBR best quality 192+ and bring those .m4a AAC files into iTunes they play just fine there. When I sync my iPod I get error messages for all the tracks saying "XXX<the song> was not copied because the video format is not supported by the iPod YYY<my iPod name>". This worked many times before with earlier versions. So who will fix it - Roxio or Apple?

    A second is still not a second

    As I burn a CD-R for an audio CD, as the timer counts down a second is not a second. It starts out burning at 9x and one second on the count-down timer is much more than a second. Then at some point the write speed increases to 17x and then the timer seems right. This is a MacBook Pro Core Duo 17" not Core 2 Duo.

    Tivo player software is very stupid!

    The Tivo thing seems to work but the player is stupid - if you have just downloaded say 8 minutes of an hour show and want to stream it (assuming the transfer is faster than real time) then it will only show 8 minutes. You can watch that, but no more than that. Very stupid software. My son tells me this is not the behavior on the PC - you can stream and watch, assuming that you never catch up to the transfer. Also, the export to iPod is very slow. You will be better off with the following flow: 1. Download the show. 2. Use Tivo Decoder to make it a .mpg 3. Use VisualHub to convert to be iPod compatible - much faster than Apple's conversion which Toast uses.

    Toast 8

    If you call Roxio you can get the upgrade for $69. The Tivo thing seems to work but the player is stupid - if you have just downloaded say 8 minutes of an hour show and want to stream it (assuming the transfer is faster than real time) then it will only show 8 minutes. You can watch that, but no more than that. Very stupid software.

    FLAC to AAC conversion now causes 7.0.2 to quit.

    This is fixed in Toast 7.1. Yay!

    FLAC to AAC conversion now causes 7.0.2 to quit.

    The same thing is happening to me - crash every time. How do you report this to Roxio?
