Well, I tried that. MUCH better, thank you. Still not TY quality but then again I'm only using these for backups of the older movies I've bought that came as SL DVDs. I imagine that first PIE spike can be ignored near the very start of the disc, since that was my buffer running out of steam and Burn Proof kicking in. Overall, probably the second best media I've used so far.
