I just backed up my copy of LOTR w/DVD 2one and I do notice pixelation in the darker scenes like the nightime shots. If you look when the camera pans you'll notice pixels appearing. I used a HP 200i w/+RW. It's pretty good but.......what do ya do. Do 2 discs or one at this compression? I did the same thing w/DVD Shrink......same exact pixilation. I got down to level 6 which was 41%. I have a Sharp 31" tv and it looks good but still some loss. I don't think 175 min. movies do good with this compression. I split Godfather to 2 discs for this reason. Just my findings guys.
