Please can anybody help.

I've searched the forums as much as I can and now its time to ask.

I'm trying to get a disk to work in a Sony DVP-S735D but without any luck. I have tried the sample file and the compatibility file but still no luck. If I use TMPGEnc with, say, one of the default encoders and then burn to a SVCD then it works OK on the Sony. If I use one of the "KVCD's" then nothing. Does this mean my Sony isn't compatible?

Just to let you know I converted my source image straight from a Panasonic DX100 to a AVI file.

If I can't use the "KVCD" files does anybody know a good high quality template for TMPGEnc that will work.

So your player does play SVCD, give SKVCD a try
Make a sample with that template and try it out

Thanks Kwag,

I'm now looking for the file but can't immediately see it. By the way, are the "KVCD" templates for XVCD & XSVCD format? I've still been searching for info and according to some posts the Sony can also do these formats. The problem a lot of people have is the media they use. It appears that the Sony can be a bit fussy about the manufacturer of the disk you use. Does this sound right. I have only ever burnt SVCD before but only as a "Can I do it" type of thing, its never been serious until now.

KVCD templates create MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 with our customized GOP and matrix. Yes, when you burn these mpeg files on a CD, it becomes an XVCD. Unless you take out the GOP and matrix and send it to CNN for digital transmission via satellite on hardware encoding equipment, then it's not a template anymore, it's KVCD "On-the-Air"

Yes the media is a pain in the Sonys. I have a Sony NS300, and it's extremely picky with media. Some types are not even recognize in the player. It displays the "No disk" message.
You can also try the templates, but encode as MPEG-2 instead of MPEG-1. Many people can play their KVCDs this way, instead of MPEG-1. So you have several methods of encoding

Hi Kwag,

Right, I'm getting somewhere. I can now use the KVCDx3-MPEG files but I have a couple of questions.

Using the MPEG1 file the picture texture looks good but its very jerky on the slightest camera movement.

Using the MPEG2 file the picture starts for a second or so very blotchy and then frizzes. Is it a matter of making some tweaks? I'm back in the forums now looking for some suggestions.

Thanks for your help and advice.
