    Hi everyone,

    I have a Pioneer 747 DVD player which works great. Last night a mate came round with a copied film on DVD R, it played the menu for a second then jumped 70mins into the film and kept repeating like a loop of around four seconds. I turned it off and on again and it did the same thing again, back to looping for 4 secs.

    I put the disc into my playstaion and guess what, it played fine but not on the 747. My mate thought it was really funny as the sony cost £150 and the 747 cost me £700 and doesn't play dvdR!!!!!!!


    I have called Pioneer today but they have not returned my call yet.

    HELP, I need to prove to my mate that the 747 was REALLY worth the money!!!!! Any ideas?????

    Thanks

    Alex:confused:

    That may have been a one off.... Have you tried any other discs?

    I know some PC burning progs. dont check for data integrity when they create the Video_ts/Audio_ts folders and that causes lots of fun stuff on standalones including recorders - even my DMR-E20 recorder that cost me a £1000 when it came out!!!

    Sometimes also cheap media causes lots of fun...

    On the note of pioneer replying :rolleyes: Did you really think they were going to return your call about a copied film?:D

    Well they didn't reply (I should have known!). But whats the point in buying a 747 if it won't play a dvdr? Also, why do they sell dvd recorders if they won't reply to a question about copied dvd's or am i missing something?

    I tried the same film but another copy on a better quality dvd and it does exactly the same thing at the same point. I really am a laughing stock because the chap that copied it has a £99 cyber thingy player and it works fine with the dvdr. Maybe I should send it back to Pioneer and ask them to supply their cheapest player as it might work better!

    Any other ideas? Should I send it back or is this the norm for modern technology? I was also toying with the idea of buying the E20 or similar, are you saying that this problem may reoccur and is to be expected?

    Many thanks

    Alex

    Well, they did call me back!

    It seems to be the copyright protection kicking in or the fact that it was copied from a PC which is not always the best way to do it.

    Hmmm , does this sound true?
