Issues with new Compressor

I thought I had everything figured out with the new Compressor (making a DVD via 150 minute fast encode), but it failed overnight (said both Audio and Video, but I think the Audio is ok). Not sure why...any tips on having no problems with Compressor/DVD-compression?

it works perfect for me. 1st I make a reference QT movie of my sequence, then I drop that QT into Compressor. I make DVD and .m2t for playback on PS3. DVD takes much longer but Compressor never failed to finish the job.
I disabled the energy saving options, earlier I had issues with that (Mac hanging before the task finished).

I love the new Compressor features, gamma and other picture settings.
I created a couple of custom settings by experimenting.

Using dual 2Ghz G5.... not the newest machine, still works OK.
