Encoding Slowdown

    This is a follow up to a previous post.


    In short, I have recently experienced a big slowdown in my encoding speeds from around 30-40 mins to 2-9hrs!!

    Following earlier advice I have updated my firmware (1.0A), installed a new ASPI layer (ForceASPI 1.8),and confirmed that the DMA is functioning.
    Unfortunately, there has been no improvement.

    I`m at desperation stage now and wonder if anyone has any other ideas. I`m wondering whether there could be a problem with the the writer (hardware).

    I`m not sure whether this has any relevance but the speed (or lack of) seems dependant on the amount of compression. A movie not requiring compression might take 1.5 to 2 hrs, whereas a movie compressed to 70% could take 8-9 hrs. Does this mean anything?

    Any help would be appreciated. A new burner or a trip to the PC repair shop seem to be my next options.

    Here is some really good advice.

    [bold]Follow up in your previous post[/bold] Don't start a new thread. When you do (start a new thread), you'll end up getting the same advice twice.
