    Could you inspect one of the MPEG files with Bitrate Viewer and post the data from the lower right (stream type, nom. bit rate, etc.) plus the value in the “peak” bit rate field?

    Please check the override setting in the Properties of every timeline. They should all be “Not Set”.

    Demultiplexing doesn’t affect the quality. It simply splits out the video and audio “as is” from the muxed file.

    There could be some issues converting the audio to Dolby Digital (AC3) though. If the audio in the multiplexed file is MPEG-1 Layer II compressed, you will be going from one compressed format to another one. This doesn’t always turn out as intended. I would recommend to convert the audio first to uncompressed PCM (WAV / AIFF) audio at 48KHz, 16 bit, stereo and to use that to create the AC3 audio from.

    Could you please make your subject headings a little more concise? 🙂

    The messages about the missing remote settings should be considered warnings or reminders rather than errors. It is telling you that your DVD won’t have an action for the menu and title keys on the remote control. You can make the setting for the “Menu Remote” in the Properties of each timeline. It can be set differently for each timeline, usually pointing back to the menu that the timeline was selected from. The “Title Remote” can be set on the Disc tab and link e.g. to the main menu.

    The “16006” error is probably an indication that there is not enough free space on the harddisk used to build the DVD output on (you should have at least 10GB of free space for a single layer DVD project). You could also get this error if you are building a larger than 4GB disc image file on a FAT32 (instead of NTFS) formatted harddisk.

    The menu can loop, but not seamlessly. The usual trick to avoid viewers noticing the restart in the loop is to “pre-loop” the menu a couple of times in an NLE (e.g. Premiere) to make it a minute or two. Most viewers will have made a selection before the two minutes are over.

    For the music playing just once, you would use two menus: One with audio, set to play one time and with an end action linking a second one without audio.

    Scenarist does support “text extensions”. Also see Forum: Guidebook for DVD-Video Text Data Usage.

    To get an idea how eDVD works, you could have a look at Alex Alexzander’s Sonic eDVD 3 Enhanced DVD Authoring Review and Tutorial. (It doesn’t cover the new features of the very recently released 4 version yet.)

    Which authoring application are you using? Are the subtitles created directly in the authoring app itself or are you adding them via a subtitle text script or a subtitle script based on bitmaps?

    [keicol] “I was hoping for a more robust option”

    This one is as robust as it gets: Pioneer PRV-LX1. 🙂
