Hi, I've Been using Nero 7 since it came out. I've been using the latest version since it was released without problems -- until now. I got a new PC and installed Nero from scratch (latest version, same one I used on the old PC). I use Nerovision to edit commercials out of programs I record with my set-top DVD burner. Until now, Nerovision would burn the edited videos in a few minutes and no loss of quality because of smart encoding. But now, I get 100% smart encoding on audio but 0% on video. Even if I was willing to waste hours recoding every video, I won't accept the loss of quality. To make sure there wasn't some hardware issue, I reinstalled Nero 7 on my old PC which had just been wiped clean and a new XP pro installed. FWIW, the old PC also got a different video card (Nvidia 5900). Same problem: Nerovision will NOT smart encode the video. All settings are identical from when it worked until now. When it was working, Nerovision would take a few minutes to read imported DVDs and immediately following that would announce it was analyzing the file. The analyze box is no longer showing and I suspect that is the cause of the problem. A note: when I installed Nero 7 on the new PC (and reinstalled it on the old PC to confirm the problem) I did NOT install the products I never used in the past. All that was installed were: Burning Rom, Nerovision, Recode, Showtime and the tools. I guess its POSSIBLE that Nero install is f'ed up and messes up Nerovision if something else is omitted. Any ideas?
