Handbrake Prematurely Ends Encode and Video is Scrambled

Hi guys,

Lots of great info on this part of the forum.

I've just started ripping my DVDs and Blu-Rays and making a server out of our Mac Mini. I've done several seasons of several shows without issue, but something weird started happening: Handbrake is stopping an encode before the progress bar is done, and I get the Put Down the Cocktail message. The file size is way too big (several GB for a 44 minute episode of a SD DVD), and when I play the video parts of it are scrambled. This is happening with a couple of episodes in the first season of Stargate SG-1 if that matters.

I'm using the ATV 2 preset with no changes. Most episodes are coming out between 600 and 800 MB and they look great.

Any idea what's up and how to perhaps correct it? Google suggests some others might've encountered this but nothing concrete. Thanks!
