    While registering my copy of Toast 6 today, I noticed that available versions to register now include Toast 7 Titantium. If you want to check it yourself, head on over to roxio's website and follow the links to register. Not groundbreaking, but I am excited to finally see a new version of Toast on the way.

    Could be - watch out with Toast 6.1, though... Deep in the list of changes on this update is a note that says Toast 6.1 (and Jam 6.0.3) will no longer burn Apple Protected AAC files. The last versions of these programs that will burn Apple AACs are Toast 6.0.9 and Jam 6.0.2 - HOWEVER, Toast 6.0.x has had serious problems burning to Dual Layer/Double Layer DVDs, which Roxio claims is fixed in 6.1, so you're really caught between a rock and a hard place if you burn a lot of DVDs and CDs.

    I splurged on the whole Toast/Jam package and compromised with my versions: I updated Toast to 6.1 and left Jam at 6.0.2...

    Gone but not forgotten.
    Yes, I got my pre-order notice yesterday on Toast 7. I'm not sure I need it since I just got Toast 6 not that long ago.

    I bought Toast 6 two days ago, so it's no surprise that Toast 7 is now on its way. Not real impressed with Toast so far. I've had some problems with it, and I know of at least one feature (besides protected AAC support) that was removed in a point update that would be REALLY nice for me to have.

    Using it now. It rocks. I haven't had a chance to make DiVx movies yet.

    I just bought it yesterday, so far so good. The disc spanning feature looks really nice but on my only test so far toast couldn't restore from the 2nd disc. However the unix cat command rejoined the split file ok.

    For all you curious people out there, it's all over BitTorrent. I won't say where but I'm sure you can find it.

    I have Toast 7.0 here and it doesn't include Popcorn. Kind of sucks that I upgraded then noticed the $30 rebate is only for US, Canada.

    No G3 Support

    I got my pre-order notice from Roxio, too, but it seems Toast 7 leaves behind G3's (at least on paper, if not in practice.) :(

    Hope they're going back to the T5 look. T6 is just ugly.

    Hmm, I heard that it was included. Apparently it's built in, not a separate app.

    I need some help, before I place my pre-order at Amazon (By the way, Amazon has a $20 rebate through Roxio, and even buying Mac OS X during the past year qualifies you for it).

    To the point, can I do this with Toast 7:

    I record a lot on my set-top DVD recorder. I record racing, and I transfer home movies to DVD that way. However, my set-top DVD recorder is half-broken, and I can no longer name the titles, and it usually allows me to record only one title.

    With Toast, can I pull say a 1 hour title, from one of the DVDs I've made on my set-top recorder, and then pull a 30 minute title, from another home made DVD, and then put both of those titles onto a single DVD, with a nice Toast Menu? Possible?

    Thanks! I appreciate your help.

    Can't reply on Toast 7, but I sometimes make iDVD's that are over the limit. So I pull them into DVD2OneX, it joins 2 or even 3 movies, however you do lose the menus, but the chapter markers are still in place.

    Nope, just new icons for the tabs and for the app, plus all the updates.

    I don't know, but when you replace your broken stuff, get an Elgato eyeTV unit... I love mine. Using Toast (6) I have made complete sets of lots of my favorite SciFi shows.

    Toast 7 does now offer several (10) DVD menu theme's to choose from. But it sucks 'cuase now I need an updated copy of Photoshop to edit the menu .psd files (ARG).

    If your set-top DVD recorder can produce VR-mode DVD+/-RW discs, then Toast 7 can extract the MPG files from those discs, let you create titles, add a cute iDVD style main menu screen, and burn to a regular DVD+/-R.

    That feature alone made Toast 7 a must-get for me. I've been banging my head against a wall trying to extract video streams from VR-mode DVD-RW discs I made on my Pioneer DVD recorder. The Mac won't read VR mode discs in the Finder, and all the Windows apps I tried to work with them... well, let's just say they're not as nice to use as what's available on the Mac.

    I have already purchased it... I haven't looked at it very well, but it seems well-worth the purchase.

    It seems it has automatic compression to single-layer DVD of a movie, automatic DivX conversion....

    It also has a tab named "Media" which allow you to burn songs directly from your iTunes Library without having to open iTunes...

    That alone is the best feature in my opinion. I haven't burned any disks so far, but I will do it now...

    G3 Trial

    Hey, Soulstorm (or anyone else with a G3),

    Any chance you can give it a whirl on your G3 and report in? I can't seem to burn out of iPhoto anymore, but Toast never fails me. Seems like this might be a good way around that. But I hate spending the money if the G3 truly is unsupported.

    Part of me assumes it's just the intensive stuff like converting the DVD's to single layer that really requires it and that traditional burning of data and CD's should be fine, but a little reassurance would help. :)

    My G3 hasn't any recorder connected with it. So I can't tell you...

    Anyway, I used Toast 7 a little bit with my G5 with superdrive... and it really is everything I ever wanted from a burning application.

    You can throw in any quictkime movie, and it will automatically make it a DVD. It will even shrink the DVD to fit into a single-layered DVD disk.

    It also has the ability to shrink commercial dvd's to fit into single-layered DVD and to choose wether you want the extras to be burned, or just the main movie... Popcorn and dvd2OneX are not necessary anymore...

    Can anyone tell me whether Toast 7 will burn DVD-Audio or DTS discs?
