I have to be honest, this is the first time I've heard that the picture quality got worse near the end. I've backed up some pretty long movies: LOTR, Gladiator, Bourne Identity, I had thought that it was pretty constant throughout even with version 1.02.
By the way, this is on a 65" widescreen HDTV monitor and by the time I get to the end of the movie, I'm watching the movie, not really noticing the picture quality anyways. I did notice worse picture quality when doing 1:1 backups of episodal DVD's though.
The new 1.1.1 version does not crash on me, so for those of you that have crashes, it's not DVD2One... it's your set up.
