    Default Duality

    Decided to give the old dual layers a spin and splashed out on a Pioneer DVR-108 and double layer media. May let you know how I get on...

    I read some reviews in CVE and they seemed to have problems with standalone player compatibility of the DL disks used. Will be interesting to hear how you get on.

    Also, do you have authoring software which supports burning to DL? You also get very little (read no) choice as to where the layer break appears. This is due to a complex algorithm and set of rules as to where a layer break can go.

    I shall watch this thread with interest.

    Encore certainly pertains to support dual layer. From memory, Marc has v1.5 so that should do the trick, possibly requiring the update I posted about last week.

    I too would be interested in the compatibility with set top players.

    Also, how much is a doubel layer blank media nowadays. Last time I boithered to look they were still about 10 a pop. Cheaper to buy a DVD than rip one off eh?

    I too have one of these burners. Cant say I have tried dual layer or indeed any decent DVDs with it at all yet. I have one in the pipeline, but nothing worth mentioning. Any D/L tests yet? Apparently over on CVE things are getting better.
