    I used DVDLab a few times to make SVCD on a DVD. Worked great if you don't want to worry about converting. Typically, I use DVDMaestro for mastering DVDs and PrimoDVD & Nero for burning DVDs.

    For SVCD, I author with VCDEasy and burn with VCDEasy or Nero.

    The best place for SVCD & DVD info is VideoHelp and Doom9

    Sony DVP-NS725P - plays but video is bad

    When I am playing non-film content on my DVP-NS725P, i.e. TV Shows or hybrid content (interlaced + film), the video on the screen will flicker between most quick scene changes. I noticed it alot on "The Shield - Seasons 1 and 2" and on DVDs burned from Tivo content.

    I know its not a bad player because I have 2 of these each bought at different times and they both have this exact same problem. I have a feeling that it has a hard time with interlaced content, since all hollywood movies (film, 24fps) plays just perfect.

    I could not find any settings on the player to help alleviate the problem. I am using the S-Video output. I have since switched to the new Philips 642 and this DVD player plays everything great, even divx discs.

    [UPDATE: I believe this was just the progressive setting. Sony did not put this setting in the menus thus I never found it, but it is a button on the front of the player that lets you toggle from progressive, interlace, detect. Switching this solved the flicker problem. However, I still love my Philips since it also plays divx and +R].

    In my experience the PS2 will play anything that I extract and burn from my DTivo with Tytools and Nero. No problems with the 480x480 Tivo standard. However I still get the left squished screen on my Toshiba 3109 and Pioneer DV-525. These are DVDs only.

    Did you use the Old or New muxer? Try with the new muxer if you haven't already as it was made with buffer management in mind (poor buffer management is probably what is causing your freezes and skips).

    HDVR2 - 120hours - Extraction enabled
    SD-DVR40 - Unhacked (for now)

    Good idea Malfunct. I tried it, but the result is much the same.

    I did a bit closer examination of what is going wrong in cast that helps:

    The picture and sound freeze about every 4 seconds. It looks more like a pause than a jump - if you took the gap out you would the right thing. Between the gaps pictures and sounds seem to play at the right speed.

    Its very odd. Any other ideas?

    HDMI and component video outputs; compatible with MP3s, Divx, WMA, and just about anything else I can think of; forward and reverse scan capability at multiple speeds like a normal DVD (my Sony 715P would only scan tyDVDs at one speed); ultra-slim profile (about 1.5" high).
    Please don't PM me or any other members looking for personal assistance. You'll do better by posting (after you've exhausted the search feature, of course) and taking advantage of the collective expertise of the membership instead of a single individual that may or may not be able to help you. Thank you and enjoy your stay at DDB!

    I havent read through this entire thread so excuse me if this was already addressed.

    I had an issue where the DVD's I was making with the Tivo utils werent playing in the kids PS2. I took the DVD I created and used DVD Shrink on it and created a new DVD and that works on the kids computer.

    You can Google DVD Shrink to get the web site with the free download.
