    HDMI and component video outputs; this is a "universal" player in that it is supposed to play back all disc formats including SACD and DVD-Audio discs (I haven't had a chance to test these capabilities yet as I currently do not own any such discs). This is a high-end player ($2100.00 list; I paid about $1650) and probably not for the average person unless you are an avid home theater enthusiast. I've also tried my TyDVDs on some of the high-end Pioneers (47ai) and Integra/Onkyo players (I forget the model Nos.) and they appeared to work fine. The video output of the 9500 has to be seen to be truly appreciated. It's as close to Hi-Def as you will see from a DVD, it really is that good. I use it in conjunction with a Hitachi 60VS810 60" LCD HD RPTV. I've gotten to the point where I won't feed it anything but honest to goodness topnotch DVDs, which is why I just joined NetFlix. With the 3-at-once plan I get about six DVDs per week that I rip to my hard drive and copy to DVD-RW discs for viewing at my leisure. The TyDVDs in my archive never looked as good on my old Mitsubishi RPTV and Sony 715 player.

    Samsung HD-841

    2 - Software to split/process TyStream?
    TyTool

    3 - Software to create DVD fileset?
    TyTool - with Audio Transcoding set to #7

    4 - DVD Success or failure?
    Success (4+ discs now)

    On this model I think you need to set the Audio Transcoding to #7 to make it work. Before I did that, the only way I got audio was from the DVD player's multichannel analog outputs - I got nothing out of my Dolby Digital outputs. After switching to #7 - Presto!

    You might try changing your digital outputs to convert to PCM instead of sending the raw bitstream. What happens is the dvd player pushes out the raw audio stream, which is mpeg layer 2 audio for most tytool created dvd's unless you transcode to dolby digital, and your stereo reciever doesn't know how to decode it. This would save you the time it takes to transcode the audio to dolby digital and would let you fit a small bit more video on each dvd as I think the audio stream would be more compact.

    I encode stuff as-is from the Dtivo, so lots of stuff has 5.1 audio. The player handles these discs perfectly as well.

    Has widescreen, so it stretches homemade DVDs to fit, which might not be bad if it is meant to keep 2 kids entertained in the back of the car. It can read mp3s and jpgs from disk, memory stick, or USB drive (according to the manual)

    I can't get it to play a Panasonic DVD RW 2-3x speed.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Is that a +RW or -RW disc? It could be the type of disc you're using (- vs. +), the format of the disc (R vs. RW), the player's ability to play 480x480 resolution discs, the player's ability to play mpeg layer 2 audio, the brand of media you're using, etc. I would suggest you take a sample recording on DVD and go to your nearest CC or BB and try it out on various players to see what works and what doesn't. A lot of players will play -R/RW discs but not +R/RW discs and vice versa.
