Sorry if this is in the wrong section, so mods please move if so ...
Anyway I am having a few problems when playing a BD that I have created in my stand alone Sony unit. I am using this guide http://brothers_grim.webs.com/bd/index.html and using a BD-RE (25GB) disc. Now I have used the disc a few times without any issues but the last few films Iíve done when I have come to play them on the Sony unit the films are very pixelated and unwatchable but when I play the disc in my PC using Power DVD its perfect.
Is it the disc or is it something else?

No one have any idea???
Following on from this I have now discovered that its not the disks I have been using as I have created the specific movies again on 2 new disks.
The 2 movies in question seem to be fine. The mkv files are fine and the resulting m2ts file in the STREAM folders are also fine as these play on my PC. Also the 2 disks with the movies on play perfectly in the PC.
Anyone have any ideas where the problem could lie.
- Sony Blu Ray Player
- Files being burnt onto the disks
........overly sensitive Blu-Ray player, maybe? That's my guess, see if you can find another Blu-Ray player to test the disk on.Got my retirement plans all set. Looks like I only have to work another 5 years after I die........

I have the exact same problem when converting MKV to Blu-ray and playing them back on my Sony BDP-350 player. Although, we also have a Samsung 1500 player and the movie plays pefectly. So it must be an issue with the Sony. Reminds me of when certain players could only play DVD-R or +R.
Another problem I've encountered is for some movies they actually do play fine in the Sony, but the aspect ratio gets stretched when it shouldn't. The black horizontal bars are missing, again the Samsung plays it no problem with the correct aspect.
Any suggestions? Perhaps some settings somewhere in the convert process I could try?
Thanks dvddemon I will try RipBot for any future problems.
Speaking of which I have just created a new BD (using method at top) and when I play in my Sony BDP-350 the picture is mirrored down the middle but it plays fine in my PC.
There has to be issues with this Sony unit. Will try RipBot for this film to find out.
