Survey: Speed Up TiVo Burning


We'd like to get some feedback from the community with regards to burning TiVo shows to DVD. By default, Toast will re-encode any TiVo shows when burned to DVD since the 480x480 native TiVo resolution does not comply with DVD standards.


I'd like to ask some of you to try disabling the option to re-encode. The potential benefit of this is that you'll be able to burn TiVo shows to a DVD-Video disc much faster.


Since the disc will not be 100% DVD compliant, we'd like to know your experience after burning a DVD-Video from TiVo files are using the steps below:


1) Launch Toast 8.

2) Go to Video --> DVD-Video.

3) Click the "More" button at the bottom of of the Options area.

4) Click the Encoding tab.

5) Select "Custom".

6) In the Re-encoding field, select "Never".

7) Click OK and add a TiVo recording to your project

8) Burn to DVD


Once the disc has been completed, try playing it back in your standalone DVD player.


Please note: You will want to change the Re-encoding option back to automatic once complete for any other video content or if the resulting disc is not playable.


Please post your results and the make/model of your DVD player, or if you prefer e-mail the results to toastfeedback@roxio.com.
