Can you make a Blu-ray over 2 hours-with audio/video matching?

Question

I put an hour and 53 minute file, a half hour file and a 5 minute file-all 1920X1080 (outputted to Apple ProRes HQ quicktime file)-into Toast and after trying many times, had to lower the bit rate to 15kbps/20max (PCM 48khz/24-bit) to fit it on a Blu-ray at a total of 23gb. Problem is that the audio and video didn't match-they were a few frames off-noticeable. Theoretically all of this fit but, should I be just putting the one hour and 53 minute file on a Blu-ray at a higher bit rate like 26kbps and just making a 2nd Blu-ray for the remaining files, thus making my project's costs double with the expense of the 2 disks instead of just one? Everytime I make one of these it takes me 2 days of computer and 2 hard drives running. I desperately need an answer on this. I've been hanging out here for weeks with little help from Roxio or fellow users. Anyone have any idea what may be causing my audio and video to not match ONLY when encoded? The QT's are fine. BTW, the long file is 24-bit audio, the other 2 are 16-bit.

I feel your pain. My first and only attempt to put HD onto a DVD took a very long time to encode and gave me a 25 minute movie with the audio and video out of sync by 7 seconds !! Geez, a frame or two I could adjust for with my home theater system, but not a whopping 7 seconds. No luck getting a response here, and so far nothing on the iMovie forum either. Can it really be that hard to make audio and video sync up?

I was just trying a Blu-ray, not Blu-ray on a DVD. But, yeah I shoot in HDV, output full raster to ProRes and drag that and intermittently, my audio and video don't match-not all the time. It's impossible to troubleshoot this and it's probably why no-one at Roxio or on this board can help me. I think there's something going on with my file somewhere along the line.
