 That was me. I found a couple of hours to give it a try. The approach at the 
URL you posted worked for me. It looks as though the options sent to 
growisofs before was what was tripping me up. This time the sample file 
worked perfectly. The video was too wide for the TV but that's the fault of 
the TV. The important thing is I finally got SOMETHING to play. ;-)

 Now I got the first task out of the way, I can experiment with things like 
multiple videos, menus, multiple language audio streams (ie. separate 
narration), and subtitles. Next summer my friend with the camera is going to 
be kept busy.
