I have another thread related to this topic in the Hardware section: http://www.hometheaterforum.com/htfo...hreadid=159400 But from a software standpoint is there something I should be aware of? Background: I can't play season 1 of Alias on my old JVC 701BK DVD player. It attempts to read the disk, and when it can't, it just spits it back out. I've only had this happen once before (I think it was with Scary Movie), and wondered if there are cetain types of DVD's that some players have problems with. Certain authoring techniques, or ways studios produce DVD's? Any help would be appreciated.
