Cannot See Selected Buttons On Stb Dvd Player

Question

hi List,

 

When I try to play the new DVD on a conventional player attached to a TV, I cannot see where the selection is pointing, ie I have no indication as to where the highlight is so that I select the correct menu item either on the Main Menu or the chapter menu.

 

Could someone please help ?

 

Thanks

One of the projects is over two hours

Works like this, in order to fit that much material onto a 4.7 GB disc the encoding rate goes way down. :(

 

HQ is done at 8 to 9 Mbps, limiting a 4.7 GB disc to about 1 hour.

 

To fit 2 hours on you have to drop to LP @ 4 Mbps! :o

 

The entire disc will be encoded at that rate, and many Players have trouble when you dip below SP (6 Mbps)…

 

Now having said that, there can be other reasons, top of which is lower quality media… Verbatim & Taiyo Yuden are top brands with the others not worth bringing home :lol: (I do use a Sony from time to time ;) )

 

You won’t find anyone who has been doing this for any length of time that will recommend exceeding the 1 hour (4.7GB) or 2 hour (8.5GB) limits . I have been doing this since 2006 and never have any menu problems by sticking to those limits.

 

Since you cannot set the Quality with V2D you have to adhere to time limits.

That does not explain why the menus don't work, nor does the quality of the disk explain why the highlight part of the menu when trying to select a menu item is offset to the right so that it doesn't appear where it should and is over another menu item. If the entire disk is encoded at the same rate, surly the menus should be adjusted to work correctly.

 

If the system/program is so crappy, why does it allow you to add more than the 1 hr max.

 

Before saying that the menu items, if I should add more than one video file to the disk, should not be move, this is unavoidable, I would not be able to either select one or the other as they are put onto the disk at the same place or at least, they overlap and present a confused display.

I am sorry you can’t understand it but that’s the way it works… :(

 

Multiple Titles on a menu page: Since the V2D is a very cut down very simplified version, you lose control for the sake simplicity…

 

So it is up to you to rename your clips apply the KISS formula to the names…

 

I also recommend having a disc or 2 of DVD RW around for learning and testing.

 

The Creator 2011 Suite has 2 Authoring programs, one of which gives you far more flexibility with Menus.

 

But that won’t change the 1 Hour per disc rule either… :lol:

 

You never did mention what kind of media you are using??? As I said, that could be the problem too :glare:
