Everyone seems to agree that the max PIE errors should be an average value of about 280. However, I have seen varying opinions about the PIF ranging from 4 to 16 to 32. What is the maximum PIF error that one should see on a dvd burn?
I have a Benq 1620 retail and am using Verbatim MC003 discs. I am generally getting a maximum of 5 to 6 for PIF's. Am I supposed to look at the maximum value or the average value. Is it okay if I have one or two spikes between 5 and 10 (which is what I usually have)?
What is the maximum value that the PIF should be? Is the average value or any spike at all?
Here's a scan. I have read that there is a problem with the errors increasing toward the end. However, I normally don't see more errors at the end like in this one.
