Hi all Hope someone has an idea on this one. My kit is as follows: Sky+ V1 (160GB HDD) Philips DVDR980 and Pioneer DVR420H-S set-top recorders PC with NEC2500a Currently my process for archiving 16:9 (anamorphic WS) from Sky+ is as follows: Record to either the Philips or Pioneer on RW disks (video mode). Rip to PC HDD and edit out adverts with Womble MPEG2VCR. Use Ulead DVD MovieFactory 4 to re-author the MPEG2 files into new DVD files. Set the 16:9 flag with IFOEdit. This works fine for me, as my TV is a new-ish Sony Vega 28" WS model, and it interprets the widescreen switching flag correctly. I have a friend who I lend some disks to, but his TV is 4:3 only, and has no manual function on the remote to switch to 4:3L, to view my authored disks in the correct aspect ratio. His DVD recorder (4Kus, rebadged ILO from Asda) doesn't appear to have any functionality to manually change modes either. I was wondering if there was any other way I could author the DVD files so that his DVD playback device would display the material on his 4:3 TV with black bars top and bottom, instead of me having to reauthor the disks differently exclusively for playback on his system. There seem to be a bunch of other options in IFOEdit, but I'm not sure what effect these will have. Ideally I'd like to find a set of options that will both switch my TV to 16:9 and also play the stuff on my friend's system correctly. <Edit>Obviously I don't want to re-encode and hence lose quality.</Edit> Any ideas? I did try and do a forum search but couldn't find anything relevant. Thanks in advance. --Loob.
