View Full Version : dvd jumps back numerous chapters

A few times now when ive recorded from the tv on my dvd recorder ive had problems on playback.I can be watching the programme ive recorded,all of a sudden the picture will freeze for a few seconds,then it goes back a few chapters.Is this a case of dirty heads when recording,bad discs,or what.Anyone had similar expperiences and could help at all.

DVD burners don't have heads, so rule that one out...

Well i played it back on the dvd recorder too( aswell as my dvd player) and there is a small glitch,of slight pixelation.So i thought ok il play it on my pc using power dvd,and theres no glitch at all,not a thing.

A PC (codec) is much less sensitive to errors than most standalone players. It can be a bad frame/gop which is outside correction capabilities of your players. It can be also a little dirty/scratched disc - PC players have a bit better error correction mechanism.
