    Last week I went to see some F1 testing at Silverstone with a friend.

    He was in awe of the fact that I could knock up SVCDs which could be played on his Wharfdale.

    So as a test I created him an SVCD of the days events.

    I was really showing off, and put some titles at the beginning, which put the words "F1 Testing, Silverstone" across the screen.

    When playing the SVCD back on the PC, it looked like this:-

    However, when I played it on the Wharfdale, it looked like this:-

    _____________________

    I have seen talk about this, on the Samsung 709 forum, as it seems like a way that SVCDs is supported on some players..

    But is this just a 'fault' on the Wharfdale player.. Or is this the way that SVCDs is supported on ALL DVD players..

    Sorry about the ASCII pictures.. They looked right when I typed them in 'fixed width' font...

    Bascially, what I was trying to show was that on the original footage, the text went across the full width of the screen, with about a 1 inch space to the left and right.

    WHen I played it on the Wharfdale as a SVCDs, the player only played an 'area' of the picture, resulting in the picture going off the sides of the screen.
