I've got a question about the latest set-top DVD players. Many are now advertising that not only do they play DVD-Video, but they are compatibel with DVD-R/-RW and/or +R/+RW. What does this really mean? What format would the disk be in to take advantage of that. It was my understanding that if I burn a DVD on my PC (I now have a DVD burner), it would be in DVD-Video format (depending on the software, of course) and then play back on any commercially availabel DVD-Video set-top box. So, what does this "extra" compatibilty mean? Is it possible about not "closing" the disk, and still be able to play it? Or possible not using the specific MPEG-2 format that DVD-Video requires, but a different, possibly more efficient format? For me, I want to be able to take my digital photos or video footage from my DV camera and create slideshows or films, burn them to DVD, and share them with friends and family on their plain old DVD players. I don't want to have to worry if they have a player with the right capabilities. So, what gives?? Thanks.
