I've posted on this forum a few times recently about poor results from my Liteon 411s, so on the advice of sum helpful people I've rolled back to firmware FSOF and tried burning some Ritek G04s. I've got better results this time - but they're still not good. I have 4 DVD players in my home - 2 standalones and 2 drives. In all of them, you can play anything I burn for about 10 - 15 minutes, then the picture starts to break up. However, if I then take the discs out of the drive, allow the drives to cool, then put the disc back in I can watch it for another 10 - 15 minutes and then the cycle starts over. Very weird.
Anyway here are two scans - bearing in mind that these are the best I've had yet and using high quality media, what do you guys think? Do I have dud 411s on my hands?
*** OK - it won't let me uploade my PNG files of the scans. Keeps telling me now they need to be BMP or JPG, which are then too large to post.
Basically, they are both Ritek G04s, done at 4x with 'max' unticked and 8 ECC.
