First off I tried V18.104.22.168 with Freedomland, which is Accrros protected. I checked the first cell. It is incorrect…tried with clonedvd…if you use dvdshrink and modify the start and end points of the movie you will not have this issue. I suspect cloneDVD is same too, but this should be taken care of automatically I think,
see the picture I am attaching.
The first cell cannot be flagged as seamless playback joint as this is in violation of the dvd spec. I suspect this has come about as a result of anydvd “'cleaning” sony’s stuff. The first cell must be flagged as an STC discontinuity (or 2 0) in pgcedit.
has this been rectified in newest version of anydvd?..I cannot check as I am now off travelling on the weekend. Most players will play this fine, but you never know when one may choke.
