Hi Stan,

The standard 4.7GB disc would have been just fine in Encore. I understand that you thought that the combined .m2v and .wav files were too big for a 4.7GB disc, but know that Encore actually transcodes the uncompressed .wav file to Dolby AC-3 which is a far smaller file, and it all would have fit. I bet if you put the DL disc in your computer and look at the size of the VIDEO_TS folder, it is not 5GB, but closer to 4.3.

A good rule of thumb is to use 560/minutes=datarate. A two-hour program would be 560/120=4.66, and I just round down a bit to allow for any menu overhead, so 4.5 would be a winner.
