I recently purchased the LiteOn 20x DVD writer and I’ve attempted to burn dvd’s of concerts I’ve downloaded (legal bootlegs from trade-friendly artists only) I used dycrptor and dvd shrink with verbatim dvd-r discs. I also have the nero 7 essentials that came with the burner.
When I make direct copies of actual dvd’s (dycrypter then backup to dvd-r with nero) they playback just fine on my panasonic SC-HT740 dvd changer.
When I try to play the one’s i downloaded (vob files, etc) the audio works perfectly but the video is distorted. I can move between chapters with no problem but the video is a mess.
Finally, if I use another player (apex - no surround sound . . small tv) it works fine no matter what. But I really want to be able to use the panasonic with the surround sound since most downloads are in dolby 5.1.
