Last night before going to bed, I set four shows in EyeTV to export; I figured they would be done by the time I woke up eight hours later. When I got up this morning, about 1/3 of the first show (2 hours long) had been exported. Should it really take that long? I want these shows in the best quality possible, as they may be burned to DVD eventually, and they may also be used in the classroom (I'm a prospective high-school teacher.) The settings I am using are: H.264 (Main profile - don't know what this means or how important it is) Encoding mode: best quality Data rate: 2000kb/sec Image size: 768x576 SD Frame rate: 29.97 Key frame: auto Audio: AAC, 192 kbps Channels: Stereo Sample rate: 48.000kHz Quality: best I've got a Rev A Intel iMac 1.83 CD, 1GB RAM. My HDD is getting full (about 7GB left). If anyone has ideas to speed up the process while keeping high quality video and sound, it would be appreciated. Thanks.
