Sorry for being unclear. It is when i tried to play the newly burned dvd
mythtv didn't change the dvd speed. Full speed even though i have selected
2 in the settings. I was not talking about when the dvd was burned.

Yes i am using the internal player. And i thought that there was a option in the OSD menu
to change the audio stream. But there wasn't such an option.
I only have one sound stream, but could select AC3 the next time.

Yes, the logs could be saved. But for me 4-5 Gb of space is maybe not much,
but since i dont use mytharchive very much, it is a waste of disk space if the
burn was ok. But i can remove them manually.
But if i can make a suggestion it would be nice to have a setting to remove
the files if the burn was successful.
Thank you for your answer.
