is this included in the "dvd-svcd" portion of the vcdhelp.com dvd players section?
i've recently been testing discs created with svcd2dvdmpg
i converted a 3 disc "the italian job" svcd to dvd.. i let it patch the mpegs, but i converted the audio from mp2 to ac3 dd 2.0 and authored through dvd maestro.. it wouldnt play through powerdvd, so i ran it through dvd2one in movie only mode..
i then tested it on a few dvd players;
symphonic dvd/vcr combo wf-802 = distorted picture, sound OK
sony playstation 2 v7 = it read the disc, but wouldnt play it because it was a pal disc..
both models of the apex 1100w = picture was funky for first 2 seconds then it displayed correctly, sound OK.
sanyo dwm-370 = video & sound OK

DVD player compatability is an interesting area. As you say it should be those players that play "DVD-SVCD"s. But for my money it also depends on the source. I.e you may have a svcd with a strange mpeg structure and that may give you issues but given a decent source mpeg that player may be ok. That is why i say in a big bold font on the front page of my site:
NB: DVD-SVCDs work on around 90% of DVD players. To save both me & you some time try the Samples first if you have never played DVD-SVCD on your player before.
I will set up a sticky post for people to post dvd player experiences but it will only be using the samples. These samples come from dvdrhelp.com/vcdimager.com and are deemed "proper" svcds. Any other sources can be encoded/edited incorrectly.
Yep that Michael Caine is good in the movie!

Well sadly I have yet, although I suppose CB 100% and paid for the + version, to make a DVD-SVCD that works in my Pioneer player...
It's very picky about this format, which is odd considering it plays every OTHER format flawlessly.
