"Audio: 192kbps Dolby Surround ac3"
ONLY 192 kbps? That's not nearly as much. I ran mine at the full 448kbps. You'd think a 3-pass MPEG would leave room for the PCM. I know my 2-pass left room for 3 soundtracks.
I would think that 192 is plenty for Dolby 2.0, but obviously not for a 5.1 track. Have you done audio comparisons at the different capture rates? You might be able to save a little extra room that you could use for the video or menus or whatever.
It is hard to really check out the video quality from captures. I have no idea what this stuff is supposed to look like on my laptop. I want to check these things out when it is hooked up to my DVD player and calibrated TV. Calibration makes a HUGE difference.
I would definitely recommend calibrating your setup before doing all this. If your blacks are too dark or whatever, it would be a waste given all your work.
But keep up the good work! I can't wait! As I said, I am a bit impatient.
