  1. When i play burnt dvd`s on my dvd player in my livingroom the colors are kinda white..
    I have also experienced this when playing an ordinary burnt cd with some filmclips on it.. the colors are out of whack..

    Could this be a ntsc/pal thing with my burning software (Nero) or what?

    Anybody got some input?

    Freemason, thats a good question. I have a similiar problem with my daughter's DVD player. For some reason it has started playing everything in black and white. (probably not the input you were looking for though.)

    I think it actually could be to do with NTSC/PAL. What is the original source encoded as V what's the DVD player/TV support. Incorrect colour output is usually a result of mismatched encoding. Do the burned DVDs display ok in the PC itself?

    Something to consider

    Was this burned with an nVidia video card?
    They've been having trouble with video playback over
    the last 3 driver builds, to my knowledge, not with 78.01.
    I'm not even sure if the video card come into play.
    Maybe it does durning the rip?
