    I am using Adobe Premiere 6.5 MPEG-2 to encode, what should the bit rate be.
    I had it at 8000 and then 6000, but I still get this message "Data Exceeded
    Multipexable bit rate" I am using 6000 or DVD NTSC 4X3 BITRATE. What
    should it be.

    I had this problem before and some fixed it, but forgotten what I did to fix

    i'm sure this has something to do with Premiere 6.5
    if there's a setting to make it dvd compatible, i'd switch it off.
    as that would make the mpeg2 file have a bitrate of 9.8kbps when it
    should be flagged at 8000 + the audio bitrate.

    or as i found here:

    The maximum allowed bit rate for video plus audio is 9.8Mb/s. If the
    video is already close to the maximum, it would be possible that an audio
    stream with a slightly higher bit rate could put you just past the limit.
    The "normal" bit rate for stereo Dolby Digital is 192Kb/s (0.192Mb/s),
    for 5.1 Dolby Digital it is 448Kb/s (0.448Mb/s).

    You can check what the highest bit rate in your MPEG-2 file is with
    Bitrate Viewer <http://www.tecoltd.com/bitratev.htm> (in the "peak" bit
    rate field).

    If you are using the MPEG encoder plug-in that comes with Premiere 6.5,
    it is important to upgrade to version 1.2 or 1.3b: Adobe MPEG Encoder
    Update <http://www.mainconcept.com/adobempeg/downloads.html>. The
    original 1.1 version can cause your DVD authoring application to throw a
    "bit rate too high" error even when the bit rate is actually well within
    the limit.

    that might help you as well...
