Encoding time
I have a P933 with 256Kram. My encodings take from 5-9 hours depending on the length of the movie settings you select for encoding. So, for your system, the encoding time is in the ballpark!!!!!!!

It pretty much depends on your system and the encoding settings that you have in Tpmeg. Got an Xp+ 1900 and 512 ddr ram, and Tpmpeg encodes almost in real time with the new 352x240 kvcd templates, but for encoding movies it takes about 1.5 to 2x the length of the movie.
If you want to encode faster you should maybe consider upgrading.

Or get "cinemacraft sp" it encodes at faster than realtime on my 800mhz system and with surerior mpeg2 quality than tmpgenc, but then again who wants to fork out $2000 for an encoder....
