Im using the version in .21 and I find it a great tool. I use it
mostly for burning cartoon movies like the Scoobydoo movies or other
children's videos to DVD so I can put them on my childs DVD player in
her room. The auto play theme is great for making single movie DVD's
that just start within a few seconds and the other themes make it very
easy to make a multi movie DVD.
It took me a little while to understand the interface but I can use
the remote from my pvr-350 to setup and start the DVD encoding
process. My backend does not have a DVD burner so I have to create an
ISO and then I ssh into the system and move the ISO over to another
system using a SMB share.
