Yesterday, I installed Toast 11 on my Intel iMac, running OS 8.5. Also, I installed the Blu-Ray plug-in. Then, I burned a QuickTime movie (made by me) with Toast. (Previously, with Toast 8, I had burned a double layer DVD, and this played OK, but I wanted to see better quality, so I exported the same movie as QuickTime but with a higher resolution.) The encoding (as PAL) and the burning of this disc seemed to go OK (just like the previous one, but it took longer). However, when I came to play THIS disc, the DVD recorder/player said that the disc was not compatible, and it would not play. I ought to mention that, connecting the DVD recorder with the TV set is a SCART cable only.
Is the failure to play this disc a result of my not connecting the two machines with a HDMI cable, or is there some other cause? I would buy a HDMI cable, but as they seem to be very expensive, I need to be sure that this would bring success.
Another thing, if you don't mind telling me: if I did fit an HDMI cable, is it OK to leave the SCART cable in as well, or would it spoil the set-up?
With thanks in advance for a helpful reply,
