I'm not sure what to do with one particular file, I get a "3504 [ERR] AC3 audio bit rate is larger than 448kbps" error when trying to create a DVD with it. The DVD image plays silent.

In the log file the file has (and with Ctrl+L):

Audio Format: Layer 2
Audio Stream Id: xC0
Audio Bit Rate: 192 Kbps
Audio Sampling Rate: 48000 Hz

But in the VTS Verification section:

Segment 1, Audio File C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Application Data\VideoReDo-TVSuite\Aud131.tmp
Audio type AC3_Mot, Sampling 48000, Bitrate 640000


The file was downloaded from TiVo and processed with VRD just like everything else I have. This is the first time I've experienced this. I ran it through QSF and get the same thing.

What else should I try?

Try forcing a reencode of the audio by selecting a bitrate.
That did it. I changed the Audio Options Encoding from "No Change" to "MPEG" and a Bit Rate of "192". No error and sound on the disc. Thanks.

It's too bad that a message of the error wasn't returned at the end of the rendering process. Since I didn't get one, I burned a coaster.

Before I even consider deleting the original files, I make sure that I have a good disc. I used to play DVD file on the computer first then burn (DVDStyler method) but with TVS I burn first then play the disc since it has been so reliable.

Mind you this was my first coaster with TVS, but I would request that if an error is detected during the rendering process, it be noted somehow at the end allowing me to check it out before burning.

I was thinking the same thing. What might be simpler is if the audio is MPEG, then always force transcode.

Is there any chance you can upload a small clip the illustrates the problem? Perhaps there something easier and quicker that we can do besides forcing a transcode.

Status messages? Yes, I can force the audio setting to be MPEG/192.

Done. It's in the MSmart folder.
