Well I just combined the 2-pass to 1-pass and tried a bit around with it. The whole idea for this incredible work .cmd came from the well respected manolito.
If you are thinking about implementing the ultimate mpeg2 encoding settings for ffmpeg you should better stick to the 2-pass with manolito's favorite matrix and suggested settings as there is no way to control the output size in 1-pass. @REM Medium bitrate (b) - set E_BR=4950k, @REM Maximum Bitrate (maxrate) set VBV_MBR=8000k together with @REM HVS Best (for low bitrate) as a matrix is bascially the best if you want to squeeze most of the movies on a DVD5 as fast as possible and if the output is still too big the only chance you have is to reduce the maximum bitrate until it fits.

Especially with older movies with a lot of grain you will gain much better quality with a 2-pass DVD9 encode.
