Hi!

Firstly, thanks Jérôme for providing a VERY useful piece of software. I'm finding it difficult to perform specific tasks however, without actually asking someone how to do it.

I created a movie-only DVD with NO menu, but 30 chapters in the one and only title. When I am at the beginning of any chapter and try to rewind with my DVD remote, the video will not rewind into the previous chapter ... but instead will stop at the beginning of the chapter I'm in and just start playing again from that chapter. The fast forward works fine, however.

Any idea what parameters are preventing me from doing this?

DETAILS:
Only 1 VTS file
VTS 1 PGC1 info: Still time: NONE Mode: SEQUENTIAL
Post Commands: EXIT
Cells: 30

Cell parameters: Still Time: NONE Command: NONE Seamless Playback: YES
Restricted Access: NO STC Discontinuity: NO

Prohibited User Options: Nothing checked off

Thank you Smile

This looks perfectly good.

There is no reason you could not rewind into the previous chapter.

Do you know that DVD players go to the previous chapter only if they are playing the 2 or 3 first seconds of the chapter, otherwise they repeat the current chapter.

Just try to press Rewind twice

Hi Jérôme, thanks for the reply, ...

Maybe I didn't word the problem correctly. If I hit the "chapter back" button, it will go to the previous chapter, and this also works for the "chapter forward" button. This works OK.

But the problem is with the "search rewind" button, where you can see the picture rewinding in fast speed. Usually if you hit the button once it will rewind at 2x speed, then if you hit it again it will rewind at 10x speed, etc., and you can still view the picture as it's rewinding, ... and then to stop it from rewinding you hit the Play button at the desired point.

When I start a new chapter and let it go for a few seconds, and then I try to do a "rewind search" as I mentioned above, it starts to rewind into the previous chapter OK, and I can see the end part of the previous chapter as it's rewinding, BUT:

1. the counter on the DVD player doesn't rewind
2. it will then suddenly stop rewinding after a few seconds and the picture will freeze
3. if I hit the "rewind search" button twice to rewind at 10x speed it will rewind further before freezing
4. but at any point when I hit Play to start watching again, it jumps back to the start of the chapter I was in before I started to "rewind search" and doesn't start playing from the point where I actually hit the Play button.

Thanks again, and sorry for the confusion. I hope this is more clear.

- Mark

3 possibilities
1) It's a bug in your DVD player
2) It's a bug in the Search indexes in the VOB files (bad encoding)
3) It's the combination of the two previous possibilities.

In all cases, there is nothing I can do. Sorry.

Jerome

Thanks very much for your input Smile
At least I know it's not something I can fix afterthefact.

Merci Jérôme,
