Default Duping from/Adding menus to DVD's made on a Pansonic Burner

We have one of the new Panasonic Burners which lets you feed a video/audio input and encodes to a DVD in real time. This gives high qualilty MPEG2 content. You can set the datarate as high as filling a 4.7Gig DVD-R with 1 hour of content or low to allow much more. The only feature lacking is that the menu system produced is very rudimentary and inflexible. We would like to be able to take the produced files and (1) just make simple duplicates using a computer based burner and (2)transfer them into something such as DVDit or ReelDVD where the project requires more elaborate menus.

Our initial experiments have not been successful. We have DVDit SE and found it did not recognize the files created. We were told they needed to be demuxed first. Looking at the files, there were three which appeared to include the video/audio information for the 1 1/2 hour encoded material. We were able to demux the first file using tmpgenc. Doing this we encountered the first problem in that DVDit did not recognize the produced AC3 audio stream. We need a recommendation for converting this to a usable format. The second problem was though tmpgenc worked fine for the first file, it would not recognize the second or third part of the original content. We do not know what the issue is.

Can someone help with describing a process for taking the encoded material produced by the Panasonic device and (1)making duplicate copies by transferring/modifying the files and burning in such as an AO3 and also (2)modifying it to a form where we can add menus and make duplicate copies from the produced project in authoring software using a standard DVD burner such as the Pioneer AO3 or the computer based Panasonic?
