Also, be sure to check that you have Blu-Ray checked in Toast Preferences.

i went into those files and removed them like you said and then i reopened toast and had to put my product key back in then went and opened it still no hd

then i tried the hd plug in installer again but still no luck.

it says that it installs correctly but it doesnt reflect on toast

blu-ray is also checked in preferences. any other thoughts?

I know the plug-in is installed for me because I can select the Blu-Ray section, but I do not see the set of menus with HD after them like in Toast 9. I wonder if this is automatic in 10 or if we are supposed to see the HD set of menus. I have done everything you have done as well so you are not alone.

I noticed by showing package contents on the Toast 9 HD Plugin that it had a folder under resources called HD Themes and that this HD installer was 293.8 MB. The Toast 10 HD Plug-in I downloaded does not contain that folder and it is only 1.2MB. I have tried to re-download, but I keep getting the same size file and it says it installs but it is funny how there is no HD Themes in the package contents. Can somebody else that has HD by there themes in Toast 10 verify the size of the HD Plug-in installer you downloaded?

In Toast 10 the HD themes are called widescreen and have (16x9) after their names. They are installed as part of the Toast package rather than separately with the HD plugin.

 

In the Video window click on the menu style thumbnail to open the Menus window. If you change the "Automatic" aspect ratio to Widescreen you'll see only the 16x9 menu styles in the list. What's nice is these now have 16x9 buttons rather than the 4x3 buttons that were in the so-called HD menus from Toast 9.

im not sure i quite understand in the hd plug in overview see http://www.roxio.com/enu/products/toast/plugin/overview.html

it has a picture of the video menu and under that it says dvd video, blu-ray video, hd dvd video, video ts, etc.

am i not going to see this on my screen?

 

or maybe i am completely mess up and doing something wrong.

i am taking 700mb video files, which are in .avi format and using the dvd video in toast 10 to burn the dvd but when i put it on my tv it looks horrible it is all "pixelated"

 

but i do that same video as a data disc and it looks great

 

wtf?

Although the link you posted goes to the info for the Toast 10 HD plugin, the example windows that pop up are from Toast 9. Roxio needs to fix that on their site. Here is how it looks in Toast 10:

What are the specs of your AVI file? Apparently it is DivX because it plays when burned as a data disc. Since you have a device that can play DivX discs is there a reason you need to convert it to video DVD? What device do you have that will play Blu-Ray video?

the reason i want to convert it to a dvd video is b/c my dvd player wont support divx, but my xbox does

two tvs two different players

 

so i went through and converted the .avi files to mp4 which both players support using handbrake but they look like crap after i burn them through toast.

 

do i have the whole process wrong?

 

my end result is to take a .avi file which is approx 700 mb in size and burn it to a dvd video that can play on any dvd player while keeping the high quality

When you add the AVI to the Toast Video window (with DVD video selected as the format) how does Toast describe the specs of the video (they are shown below the video title)?
