You're right, my apologies for not being specific at all. Thanks for the offer of help. Here's what I've done:
1) Downloaded the park run 1920x1080 22.5Mbps file from w6rz.net to make sure I'm working with a true valid file.
2) Opened mpeg-vcr eval version 3.14 and opened the single ts file. Selected OK.
3) Clicked the third button from the right on the left hand bottom row (yellow/pink icon).
4) Selected MPEG-2 Program Stream and specified the file output. Clicked save. Let it do its thing and then close mpeg-vcr.
5) Opened fully licensed purchased DMF 5+ (version 5.30.0107.0)
6) Selected Video Disk, New Project, select radio button HD-DVD. Click OK
7) Selected Add Video Files from Add Media section. Browsed for mpeg that was created from mpeg-vcr. checked info: MPEG-2 Video, upper field first, 24 bits, 1920x1080 16:9, 29.970 frames/sec, variable bit rate max 22496 kbps, Dolby Digital audio 48000hz, 384kbps bitrate.
8) Selected Open. Deselcted the create menu option. Next, Next to step 3.
9) Select create HD DVD folders and specify location.
10) Click project settings button and make sure do not convert compliant mpge files is selected. Click OK then click burn. MPEG is not re-encoded.
11) Launch Nero Burning ROM version 126.96.36.199 Select DVD-ROM(UDF).
12) Make sure NO Multisession is selected. Click UDF tab and select xbox compatibility mode. Ignore warning.
13) Click New. Drag and drop the hd_dvd folder to the root of the compilation.
14) Click Burn--select same speed as media is rated for, click Burn.
I'm using a Plextor 716AL and Taiyo Uden 8x DVD-R media.
I also downloaded the ISO image from w6rz.net and burned it to the same media using IMGBurn 188.8.131.52 and that DVD was recognized in my A1 as an HDDVD and it played perfectly fine.
I'm guessing Nero at this point but haven't eliminated every other possibility. It's very frustrating though.
Thanks for any advice.
