Re-digitizing oldies

Been transcoding some "old" movie files of mine, so I can play those on the TV's built in player.
Tried using Handbrake to do the job, but it crapped out on every single video file I threw at it, so I eventually moved to ffmpeg.
Used my trusty T60p to do transcoding, it takes the lappie about 40 minutes to get an hour and half movie onto an mp4 file with an standard resolution of 600x320 or so.
This are the current options on ffmpeg:

ffmpeg -i "Vanishing point.avi" -ab 48k -b 2000k -r 25\
 -s 592x320 -vcodec mpeg4 Vanishing.Point.mp4
