Toast 11 Authored High Definition Dvd (Avchd) Cannot Be Played To The End

Question

I have just purchased Toast 11 with the HD plugin (ie with the latest patch) and the plan is to produce a high definition DVD (AVCHD) to play on set-top Blu-ray players. I had successfully to author the contents (8 MP4s) and saved the the DVD as a disc image. Then I tried to burn the disc image on DVD-R twice and the first attempt finished at 100% and then hung. The second attempt worked well and returned back to the menu normally.

 

Then I tried both discs with a Sony Blu-ray player with an AVCHD logo (ie AVCHD disc compatible). However, only the first three chapters out of eight can be played for both discs. Then the video stopped at the fourth chapter. I tried to select the 4-8 chapter individually but they didn't work (control remained on the disc menu) although the player counter was still moving. In fact, as an exceptional case, the 8th chapter of the first disc can be selected individually and played fine.

 

Then I tried both discs with the built in Roxio video player (bundled with the HD plug-in), apparently all eight chapters can be selected and played individually (although the performance was very choppy!). In other words, all chapters do exist and valid on both discs.

 

Is this a Blu-ray player compatibility issue or Toast 11 has a player-specific bug somewhere! Hope the experts here could shed some light on this issue.

 

PS: Instead of cutting High Definition DVD, I also tried the same 8x MP4 in similar workflow to burn a SD DVD with Toast 11, the disc works fine.

Hi there,

 

Bad news. I found another thread with the same problem - not all titles/chapters of Toast 11 made HD DVD or Blu-ray discs can be played!

I was hoping for a solution but now it seems that the chance is quite slim. Very disappointed although I was warned by many reviewers about how "reliable" Toast 11 is. Sigh!

I haven't created a similar project so I can't tell you if my experience is any different. I can tell you that I'm aware Roxio is working on an update to Toast 11 that may be available some time in March. I don't know more than that and I don't know if the update will fix what you're experiencing or if it will create new problems. But I do know they have put in a great amount of time and effort on the next update. It's not just a tweak.

Just an update. Finally the latest patch of 11.0.6 has fixed the problem I raised earlier. Now all chapters on AVCHD disc can be accessed and played. The only thing I still don't understand is a white blank screen appears between chapters for my MP4 based video clips but this issue doesn't appear for other videos taken by standard camcorder.
