"Advertised Features Don't Work and Aren't Supported"
Video encoding is decent and speed is reasonable. Tivo Transfer is great if you have a tivo product. Allows you to save TV shows (that are not copy protected.... sorry no HBO copies)
Toast 11 advertises that it includes Spin Doctor X and gives details about what it can do. Unfortunately most of these do not work and the organization that created Spin Doctor X (Sonic Solutions) has been acquired by another organization who based on their website is no longer supporting this product. So you have a broken piece of software out of the gate and no support for it. If you have recently purchased Toast I would be contacting your credit card company and filing a complaint. You may be able to get some compensation since neither Corel or Rovi seem all that interested. Other software included is mostly introductory software which is very limited and updates have to be obtained directly from these organizations.
Other software products which are advertised with Toast may or may not work. Unfortunately, with mergers of many organizations previously very good products like CD Spin Doctor (Named Spin Doctor X) have become non functional because the organization (Sonic Solutions) that created Spin Doctor was acquired by Rovi. Rovi is not supporting (at least from what I can see on their website) Spin Doctor or CD Spin Doctor.
