After recording a tv episode using EyeTV to my Mac's hard drive I can usually burn it to DVD by opening Toast directly from the EyeTV interface after choosing the video I want to burn and in the new Toast window, which already shows my tv episode, I choose Burn. Toast then first multiplexes the video, then burns it to DVD. Never had a problem with that, whether with normal DVDs or dual layer DVDs for longer films. EyeTV seems to use some sort of proprietary format for acquiring the video, since a Get Info on a file shows kind as "EyeTV Recording".
But when I went to burn three episodes of a miniseries on the same double layer DVD (yes, it fit) I added all three to the Toast window by selecting them in the EyeTV Programs window and hitting the Toast button in the window's menubar which launched Toast with the three episodes in its window, then inserted my new empty dual-layer DVD media, adjusted for optimum quality and hit burn. The multiplexing seemed to go fine, but when it started burning to disk I got a media error...and a coaster. I thought it might be a bad disk so tried several more and lowered burn speed to minimum with same results . I also tried it on a MacBook Pro, thinking it might be the older burner in the G4MDD but got the same error. Normal burning from EyeTV (one video at a time) works fine.
Is there a way to burn multiple videos from EyeTV onto the same DVD using Toast?
BTW I contacted EyeTV support but since the individual files burn without a problem they said it is a Toast issue, not an EyeTV issue.
