What does SPLIP stand for?

Recommended Posts

:lol: I did stop using the PS2 to play DVDs pretty quick cos it was so shite db. Makes you wonder about the quality of the blu-ray player in the PS3 when it sees the light of day eh ?

Yeah, Sony tends to have good ideas, but, lousy execution. Such as their choice of hardware in the PS2.

Oh, yeah, always COULD be. One of the things that makes life's failures more painful in the end. :lol: But, Sony's track record with the Playstation going to PS2 doesn't bode well. My original Playstation had to have its entire motor/laser assembly replaced in 2000. By late 2003, it needed it replaced again. My PS2 also has already needed 1 motor/laser assembly replaced, too.

I replaced my first laser a few weeks back, the thing just stopped loading up any games or films.

 

Struggled a bit as mine is a V4/5 PS2 my usual place no longer stocked replacement lasers and had to order from a place recommended by dontasciime. All worked out ok tho.....

But honestly, is a one second skip/pause worth all this trouble?

 

TBH it doesn't bother me: using Arcam DV88 to play it's not a major issue. I suppose some DVDs I watch (concerts etc) is split into sections anyway so the layer break may well occur between sections.

Superbit?

 

I've done some searching about this superbit thing, not much info.

Is this a HDTV(US) playback standard or what...?

Imagine having the ability to see more details in a scene from your favorite movie. Background images become clear and bring new life to that movie you've seen multiple times. Although the Superbit? collection can be viewed on any DVD player, the more advanced DVD equipment, the better the experience. In addition to the improved clarity of picture, Superbit? offers the highest quality sound available.

 

With the highest resolution picture plus DTS and Dolby Digital 5.1 sound, Superbit? offers the ultimate in home entertainment.

The Superbit? titles utilize a high bit rate digital transfer process which optimizes video quality while offering a choice of both DTS and 5.1 Dolby Digital audio. Superbit? DVDs are encoded at about double their normal bit rate while maintaining full compatibility with the DVD-Video format. The result is picture quality that provides outstanding detail and is the closest to the original master available on DVD to date. Superbit? DVDs play on current players and needs no additional DVD equipment.

Currently DVDs are encoded to optimize space for the feature plus added value and audio streams. The SUPERBIT? collection converts the physical space devoted to added value to higher bit rate video and both Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS audio. Consumers have never had a choice in their DVD viewing in the past.

Is this superbit superior to the Blueray video and audio standard?

MPEG-video and audio on dvd has a limited bitrate spec as far as I know, and Blueray video and audio specs are way above these.

lol no, superbit is still limited by the max bitrate imposed by the DVD specs.

 

HD DVD and BluRay limits far exceed those of the DVD spec.

It's just a regular DVD with no extras (thank God) and muxed at or near the highest mux rate (9.8Mbps). Often almost a constant bitrate of around 8Mbps

It's down to the Media you are using.

 

You can only use Verbatim dual layer disc's and try and get the 2.4x ones (they are the only ones that actually work with at least 99% success rate)

 

And unless I am blind your pioneer writer seems to be running invisible firmware.

 

Have you recently flashed your pioneer 111

 

you also choose an unsupported write rate

You need to buy verbatim discs. Datawrite discs are the cause of your problem or a faulty drive.

If you buy verbatim disc's and it still does it chances are the drive is faulty.

I know this is an old topic and things have moved on now in dvd land.

 

Its better to have it seamless we all agree. We all agree the head has to move and change to layer 1

 

So if we set it to seamless, and the dvd doesn't support it, what happens?

 

I assume more and more players support this now.

 

I ask this as I produce dvd for the public use ( on a limited level ) and very very rarely I cannot find a point to place the lbp that when it stops for 1/2 a second it wouldn't matter.

 

and on the same point this current one I have says good, the lowest of the 3 offerings, unfortunately its in the middle of an important scene
