It seems like I am having one problem after another these days with my movie backups! I did a forum search and didnt find much, so I decided to start a thread.
Todays delima. I have noticed just recently with many of my movies burned three to four months ago that the picture quality is deteriorating. Where the picture looked perfect at one point in time now it has lots of pixelation around many of the dark scenes, backgrounds, and faces. I ran a new quality scan on one disk this morning and it appears that the disk quality itself has deteriorated since it was first burned. It hasnt deteriorated much, but it does make me wonder. Its not so much that the disk is showing a little deterioration physically its that now the picture quality looks so bad, i dont even want to watch the movie because it looks almost like a vhs.
Compressed with Rebuilder/ HC encoder
Burned with Sony DRU 820A Firmware 1.0b and VSO copy to dvd software
TV and dvd player has not changed
Has anyone heard of this happening before? And espescially after such a short period of time. Is there anything I can do about it?
