Toast 9.0.4 update ships
Roxio has updated Toast 9.0.4, fixing sync issues, errors and TiVo problems. The CD/DVD/Blu-ray burning software has resolved multiple audio and video sync issues with MPEG video files, and fixed video-related -39 errors, along with compatibility repairs. It features better detection of AVCHD volumes, and repairs an issue with cutting TiVo recordings. The Streamer component has also been upgraded to 1.0.4, resolving an issue where video lists would not update correctly.
Toast allows users to burn data volumes for both Mac and PC, and can burn home movies to DVD and Blu-ray. Users can also transfer TiVo content to their computers, and burn the files to DVD via Toast's TiVo transfer. The suite includes CD Spin Doctor for importing and working with audio files, and Streamer, an application that allows users to watch their video collection across the Internet on another computer or Wi-Fi-connected iPhone or iPod touch.
Toast 9.0.4 is available for $100, in some cases with a $20 mail-in upgrade rebate. The software requires Mac OS X 10.4, QuickTime 7.0 and a disc-burner.
