OK. I guess the answer is "you can't". I find this out AFTER I paid $25 more to unlock the MPEG2/4 so I could burn DVDs. Live and learn. I guess I'll be paying TMPGEnc $75 or whatever it is for their program.

Ok, here's the deal. I have 9 arrested developments with commercials removed with videoredo. All 9 fit on just fine on a single layer dvd using MF3 with a 3 page top level menu and selected stills for each of the 9. In fact, they take up only 2.8Gb
The same 9 will NOT fit on a single layer dvd using Nero, despite setting everything to 'auto' and verifying in the 'Details >>' panel that all 9 segments are 'video smart encoding ratio 100%' or close to it [2 are 99.7].
Bottom line, either there are still some magic switches I'm missing, or Nero just doesn't do as good a job as MF3 [and I suspect will take longer than MF3 did if it's writing over 4Gb of what MF3 does in 2.8Gb].

Andy, I've got Nero too and it always re-encoded. Based on your advice I downloaded the update and enabled 'Smart Encoding'. My DVD tab has everything set to Automatic, except for Encoding mode, which is set to High Quality( 2-pass VBR). So will this work with a recording at standard without having to re-encode?

If you don't edit medium quality, you can fit two movies/dvd. If you edit
out the commercials, it only writes new output at the high quality.

I don't understand exactly what you're saying. Can you re-word it a bit?
