Two drives, two separate instances of HB possible?

I have two disc drives that I use for burning DVDs. My question is can I run two separate instances of HB so I can be burning two DVDs at once? Currently I have to alternate drives when the other drive is finished.

If this is possible it should save some time encoding large libraries!

Thanks!

Help: using nightly build and can't get DTS -> AC3 to work

Trying to convert dts to ac3 on the fly using handbrake nightly build and I can't get the atv to pick up the ac3 track. I've tried putting the ac3 track on the first line and the second in handbrake and my receiver always pick a it up as DPLII. The setting I'm using on the audio tab is dts to ac3 to...

Re: HandBrake SVN2773 Snapshot

Should performance be reduced for these snapshot builds? I ask because I'm ripping blu ray and I'm only averaging about 6 fps when encoding from a mkv file at 720p. Takes about 4-5 hours per file. When I encoded at 1080p it took about 16 hours!! I have a iMac core 2 duo so I would think I'd get bett...

Well, I downloaded the 0.7.0 version of Handbrake and gave that a shot, and it worked!!! Not sure what the difference is between that version and the current one, but for whatever reason the older one worked.

Good news.

HD-DVD support?

Just wondering if Handbrake is looking to include HD-DVD support anytime soon? There are some programs that do this, such as AnyHD or DVDFab HD. However, they are both Windows programs. Plus, their output is an EVO file which I'm not even sure how to convert. Anyways, just wondering if this is in th...

Welll, I just don't want to hack my Atv just like I don't want to hack my iPhone. I'd rather use a method that doesn't require hacking, and we have one, its just not fully documented and laid out nicely for us noobs. That's where I as hoping some ppl from this thread would step up and contribute for...

Yeah, I just did the MTR extraction and then tried Handbrake from that, and still no luck. So now I'm using Visual Hub with each VOB file. Seems to be working, but I'll have to let you know how it goes.

While that is true regarding AAC 5.1, there is a method for "tricking" the ATV into using an AC3 file. It involves a lot of formatting and muxing/demuxing, but it's doable. That's why if we had a nice FAQ on the subject, more people would take advantage of it. Some of the tools needed are Windows ba...

While that article is a great reference point, it still doesn't give us "lazy and inept" users a FAQ or "How To", complete with tools and steps. That's what I'm looking for. I've contacted a couple people on this board that contributed to this thread asking for the specific tools, but no luck so far...

Well, has there been any updates on this subject? I am looking to get 5.1 out of my unhacked ATV, but can't seem to find all the programs required. Could someone possibly host some files for all us peons out here that can't find them ourselves? That would make this MUCH easier and we could create a ...

Can't rip Chappelle Show DVD - SOLVED

When trying to rip Season 1 of Chappelle's Show, Handbrake either says the file is done literally 2 seconds after starting the process, or it crashes. It does create a file, but it's only 4kb so it's really nothing. Anyone have any ideas on how to get this working? This is the first time I've had an...
