    Hi all,

    One thing that has been on my mind is the quality in the transport between a top quality standalone DVD player (Say Denon 3910) and a £50 DVD writer. Is there a need to have a decent transport for a better DVD reproduction or is it arbitrary and it's actually the software running in a DVD player/HTPC that determines the quality ?

    Thanks all,

    Richie.

    I'm not disagreeing but don't you find that your PC drive plays discs that your DVD player won't? I'm not talking about divx, but DVD. My Tosh won't play many (especially copies), my cheapo ASDA job plays almost everything thrown at it, but if there is a suspect disc, or maybe a bad burn my PC still has a better chance of playing it. Are the lasers not of a better quality in a PC drive?
