Actually, I'm curious as to how you manage to make DVDs. dvdauthor
works, but it requires that you generate an XML file for it, which isn't
a very user-friendly thing to do. The latest Gentoo ebuild for

Are you encoding a metric arseload of video, or do you have a really old
machine? The message referenced above recommends a PIII-733 or greater
for the PVR-350, so if you've got a really old machine, you'll want to
upgrade it anyway. HTH,
