That "menu encode" includes multiplexing and image building, you should be able to cut that down using a faster drive (preferably a SSD).

Point taken!

I'm just happy with the much speedier encodes!

I burned a BR disc using the FCB encoded files, and compared it to a disc burned from the same timeline, with only the previous software encode.

I couldn't tell any difference in quality. Both looked great.

Yup, while x1 cards are supposed to work fine in x4, x8 and x16 slots, the real world tells us that for various reasons, some motherboards are just plain picky about where certain devices sit. Most likely it's similar to the old resource allocation problems we had with IRQs and DMA channels. :)
