Audio Quality Problems Toast 11 Blu-Ray Mac Os X 10.6

Question

I recently upgraded to Toast 11 from Toast.

 

* I transfer a 1-hour TV show using Tivo Transfer (2.0) to my Mac Pro running OS X 10.6.7.

* I select it in Tivo Transfer and click on the Toast It button.

* In Toast 11 I am in Video with Blu-Ray Video selected in the upper left hand corner of that window with my Blu-Ray play plugged in and BD selected as the disc type I will be using.

* I click on Edit for the video that I will be editting

* Once in the Edit Video window I set the markers to delete the commercials.

* Once I am done with my edits I click on File/Save.

* I then burn the Blu-Ray disc

 

After that disc is created, I take it to my Sony Blu-Ray Player. The pertinent specs on my Blu-Ray player are:

 

* Sony Blu-Ray Player BDP-S350

* Software Version 07.4.024 (most recently available update)

* Using HDMI for video/audio out

* Audio Settings

- Audio Output Priority = Coax/Optical

- Audio (HDMI) - Auto

- BD Audio Setting = Mix

- Audio ATT = Off

- Dolby Digital = Dolby Digital

- DTS = DTS

- 48kHz/96kHz PCM = 48 kHz/16 bit

- Audio DRC = Auto

- Dolbymix = Bolby Surround

 

I play the video and up to the first commercial cut, the mouth moves with the words. However, after the commercial cuts, the mouth often gets out of synch with the words. After about 60 seconds the mouth gets synched back up with the words until the next commercial cut. Some recordings are definitely worse than others. On the last editting I did this with no other applications running on my computer and all settings, like Time Machine off, screen and power savers turned off with no noticeable difference. I did not have this in Toast 10 so please help me with what I may be doing wrong.

 

The other problem with Blu-Ray is there is no BD player for the Mac OS X 10.6.7 environment that I am aware of. This would be a nice future ability for Toast. Otherwise I burn a $0.75 25 GB disc and if it doesn't work I have a new coaster. Thanks for any help anyone can offer.

I'm pretty sure this is an issue with the Blu-ray player rather than with Toast. That's because Toast doesn't do anything with the source ac3 audio other than trim it. A good way to test this is to use the Roxio Video Player to play the Toast-burned Blu-ray disc. Yes, it is a Blu-ray player but it only plays Toast-burned Blu-ray discs and not commercial Blu-ray discs.

Once I finished making the edits to the blue-ray video, I

 

* Clicked on Destination and then selected "Save As Disc"

* This created a .toast file

* I looked for a way to view this .toast file, but was unable to do that. Please explain how I can use Roxio Video Player to view this disc as stated above:

Here's one way to do it. Choose Mount disc image from the Toast Utilities menu and select the .toast file you created on your hard drive. Next, choose Roxio Video Player from the Toast Extras menu. I don't recall exactly which file in the mounted disc image you select with the open file dialog box that appears but you'll figure it out.
