When using 544x576 (528x576) the fonts become about 30% wider on the stand alone with full screen movies. I've tried...

Re: Sony DVP NS-300 dvd player

I only got Vivastar and Princo CD-Rs to work, and most CD-RWs.

Rumors are that Vivastar went bankrupt and Princo didn't pay Philips/Sony for the CD-patents, so buy a lot if you find them, I did...

Cheap players not always best quality

I used to watch my kvcd's on my cheap Finlux 510, which appears to be the same player as the Cyberhome 2400 (see here (http://forward.to/finlux510)).

Then I looked at some of the same movies on a...

Finlux DVD 510

Sadly, KVCDx3 does not work on the Finlux DVD 510, all kinds of blocks all over the place, but no coherent picture :(

I stick to the KVCDplus 352x288 PAL templates, they work the best
