[QUOTE=geno888;2528359]If playback is perfect from hard disk, then the most probable culprit of this stuttering is the DVD disc.
What brand are you using?[/QUOTE]
I have used 4 different brands. Maxell dvd+r Prodiscs 16x, Memorex dvd+r Ritek 16x, Verbatim dvd+r MCC004 16x, TY valueline dvd-r TYG03. All were tried at 4x.
I definitely don’t think it is media related.
