    Supports TiVo also, on the list of technologies that will not be integrated into your Mac tomorrow. :D

    Surely its suggesting getting a mac complatible blu-ray player and plugging it into your mac?!


    But a release so close to the keynote could mean other things, methinks?

    now you can choose exactly which movies, extras and menus to keep when copying a dvd, much better.

    all i want now is animated menus when creating a dvd like on idvd, oh and widescreen menus.

    I like how Jam functionality is integrated - now I no longer need both apps! :cool:

    I believe there's a 30-day money back guarantee with Toast - you could look into returning it perhaps.

    I think the meaning is simple. If you buy this or this or this (or any other similar device) for your Mac, they want to be able to support it.

    I bought Toast 7 for 59.99 and I can return it within since I'm within. New version is 79.99 (Man, I hate mail-in rebates-- why do companies persist in using them?). Anyone here used it yet and can comment on whether the changes are worth it?

    Also, I'm concerned that my EyeTV integration with Toast will break. Anyone know anything about that?

    Bought it. The interface is less Mac-like than before IMHO, and not to my taste. They have ditched Magic Mouse Discus in favour of a limited version of Disc Cover.

    The online upgrade price in the UK is £29.99 if you have Jam 6, Popcorn 2 or Toast 7, otherwise you pay £69.99 - soon to rise to £79.99. Ouch! We do not get mail-in rebates, such as offered on Buy.com in the States.

    It seems faster, though. Toast 7 takes two bounces to start on my MBP C2D, and Toast 8 just about one bounce.

    Real simple. Lots of people forget to send in the coupons, and end up paying full price.

    And the rebate-fulfilment people can conveniently "lose" your paperwork or reject your request for bogus reasons, delaying your rebate indefinitely. Historically, I've had to make phone calls and send nastygrams to Roxio in order to get every single rebate, so I suspect they are actually using this as a profit center.

    This may be a stupid question but...
    you can't use the blu ray support on this app unless you have a blu ray burner can you? I suppose it won't work with a superdrive, correct?

    Not a stupid question - you're correct. Toast supports burning to Blu ray discs via Blu Ray burners, but you obviously require said burner installed on your machine in the first place. It's no different that saying Toast has DVD burning capabilities although some people who use it might be using older Macs with combo drives, not superdrives (and could therefore not burn DVDs since they are lacking the proper hardware.)

    Gotcha. Thanks ~Shard~. I really haven't seen any blu ray burners for Mac yet, nor have I looked at all. But i'll wait until the blu-ray/HD war is settled before I jump into it all.

    No problem at all. And for the record, there are several Blu Ray burners now on the market, so it's not like no one will be able to use this functionality for a while.

    See my previous post.

    I pointed out links to three burners (two USB/FW, one internal IDE). There are others as well.

    They're not being sold as Mac devices, but there's really no such thing as a Mac-specific disc burner of any kind. It's just a matter of having compatible burning software. Which is what Roxio has announced.

    Toast 7 was a system hog too. Thats why I download and burn things on my desktop rather than my new MB....I hate the sound of the fans running full speed for a couple hrs straight trying to encode a movie. Cant be good for it.

    But to stay on topic...just got Toast 8 and I like it better than 7 :)

    I have a couple of questions.

    How well does this work with elgato recorded programs? Is it really simple to select a program and burn it?

    DVD copying. Does T8 just allow me to through in something like the incredibles, and it will simply allow me to select waht I want and then burn it is a single layer DVD in Divx? What about DRM?

    HD Recordings?

    I want to know if anyone has experience with EyeTV and HD recordings.

    What I want to easily do is create a DVD disc of 4 episodes of a show, say the show 24 from the HD recordings of my TV MiniHD. So far all I've seen is "no transcoding" needed for Standard Def recordings.

    There is terribly little documentation of this around right now. Please help!
