Description of problem or question:
There's a slider bar that controls the speed under "optimise video" and there is a pull down menu that reads "encoder setting". What if any bearing does this have on video quaility.
On another note, I am only using Handbrake in the first place because when I record streaming TV I get an error on Pinnacle Studio 11.0 that reads, "error opening video file" and I don't know why.
Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):
HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):
1.1.2 (64 bit)
Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):

Version 1.1.2? Your hardware should support 1.5.x. 1.1.x is really only "supported" for hardware that cannot operate in 64-bit mode, which you're operating in.
Your question is, essentially, "what does the quality I choose have to do with the quality I get?"
Video can be encoded a lot of ways. Generally speaking, if you want better quality video, you move the settings higher. If you're editing the video after you convert it, you'll want a higher quality (lower RF values) to maximize the quality.
