  1. When I follow this process in a VIDEO_TS that I know contains a full 2+ hour video, it only finds the first 2 chapters (about 1 hour). How do you get handbrake to allow you to add all the VOB files needed?

  2. Come on, man? I thought I was actually gonna find some info here, not how to turn it on. I’m having trouble with the output that looks like a very poor digital cable signal. All scrambled up, but I can’t find that it’s copy protected.
