I used Digital Rebellion's Pref Mgr to trash all prefs; then Compressor Repair to fix them.  Rebooted.  Stopped Qmaster.  Reset services.  Established 5 instances ( I have 8 core Xeon 2.8ghz Mac Pro ).  Restarted Qmaster sharing.  Opened FCP file, sent to Compressor.  Selected DVD settings.  Chose cluster I set up in Qmaster.  Submitted. Instant "HOST Failed" error messages on the five instances that appeared in Batch Monitor.


Help.  Tired.  Frustrated.  ******.

    If you really are running 10.6.2, I'd start by running all software updates.


    See what happens if you export a 5 minute section of your movie, export that as a master file and bring that movie into a new Compressor job,


    Post a screen shot of the Computer Sharing settings window to see whether anyone can spot something amiss.
