I am just assuming that the 352x480 temp. when I play it on my standard 4:3 tv., it is only 1/3 of my t.v. screen in the center. Is that because my DVD player don't like that resolution or it's the 4:3 tv? Cause to me this temp sucks for me it appears. I basicly have to encode everything at a 352x240 res. to get movies onto 1 cd. Sure would be nice to get a 704x480 onto 1 cd without turning the cq to like 10. Which makes the quality lower then a 352x240 cq at like 21 or above.
Oh by the way, I got a new cd burner. Remember I was saying that I couldn't get more then 746 megs onto 1 cd with that Mitsumi cd burner? Well, I have a new one and it is a LG burner. And so far I have reached up to 782 megs and still had some room on the cd. So I am very happy with this cd burner. I will soon find out what the limits are on this burner, I am sure it is at least 800 megs.

Hi Mark,
If you have to encode at 352x240, use the KVCD PLUS template. The quality produced is far better than the standard KVCD 352x240 template, while still maintaining an average of 120 minutes per CD-R.

Hi,

Well, you never did answer me about the 352x480 res. I was wondering which was causing me to have only 1/3 of the t.v. screen when encoded at that res. Is it the t.v. or my dvd player?

Also, I noticed that your template kvcd 352x240 plus, it has a bit rate of max 1150. Isn't that quite low actually for an average movie? Seems like that makes the movie jump and audio to lag and stuff, alot more then at a setting of like 2300-2400 max. which I use.

Plus, I also noticed that in that template you have the soften block noise enabled, it seems that when using this, it makes the picture somewhat softer and actually takes away the quality of the picture more then actually enhancing it. Especially if you are using a dvd rip anyways which really shouldn't have all that much noise to start with. So, wouldn't it really be better NOT to use this option?

And one more question, sorry for so many things at one time, but I really haven't asked that many questions all together. unlike some have..lol
What is the real differance in the setting of CQ and automatic CQ VBR? It just seems weird that you can change the exact same settings but still end up with different results. What does one setting do differently then thee other?

Zep, I have the same problem that you. My Sony NS400D DVD+Sony 4:3 100Hz TV plays the 352x480 template at the center of screen, only 1/3 of TV so actually I am using 352x288 template.

The LG recorder is fantastic, the best far away for me. My record are 971 Mb, recognized by my DVD, but I have recorded 1GB, recognized by the recorder, but not by my DVD.

Best Regards

Some players don't like the 352x480(576) Half D-1 resoution. Mostly Pioneer models. But if you can play 352x240(28, most probably you can also play 704x480(576) because it's a valid VCD resolution for mpeg stills .
So it usually plays fine. Give that a try!

I used to have the same problem, but it was just a matter of wrong resize/aspect ratio.
Did you ever tried FitCD+AVS? After I started using it, I had no more problems with 352x480.
Just use FitCD+AVS to resize to 1/2DVD (that's 352x480) and set TMPGEnc
Source aspect ratio -> 4:3 Display, Video arrange Method -> Full Screen.
