I do not know of a free version of Toast, well perhaps a trial version.  I 
also do not know of a good free alternative.  I decided to pay for Toast 
because it was highly recommended and I could not find anything free that 
would do what I wanted.  Sometimes you get you pay for.  Unfortunately, 
you are correct about tv's being the most agressive.  The one I want is 
still a good $2000.  Yikes!
