Great forum . Hope somebody can shed some light on my problem. Had my E55 since April so I'm pretty familiar with it. Having burned many DVD-r's (mixture of Verbatim, Maxell & TDK) I've recently started having the finalised menu 'blackout' As many Panny owners know, when you first playback a finalised DVD-R you immediatley get a blue menu replete with the thumbnails. In my case, all I'm getting is at best is one thumbnail surrounded by a full screen of blackness. Any ideas?.
