FWIW, I have gotten a 43 minute, 3700MB 720p/DD 5.1 program burned on a DVD5 per guide, using VRD, HDpatch, MF5, and Nero 6, to play in the Xbox 360 addon - it looks and sounds great.
I spent a long time looking at my earlier failures with 720p stuff and found at least once was due to a bad burn (uncorrectable errors, not just poor quality) and at least once was due to not following the guide properly when using HDpatch. On the bad burn, the XBox stays on the logo or console display, whereas it gives a blank screen when the content is not to its liking.
MF5 seemed to take a long time to remux this program though - twice as long on a per-GB basis as 1080i with DD5.1; has anybody else seen that and/or have any idea why that would be?
