    The stock default is 8Mbps, IIRC, but you can set it however you want. Best choice usually is something that fits all the assets you want onto one disc, while retaining enough quality for them (leaving a little available for overhead). That's what bitrate calcs are for.

    I raised it to 8.5 and ran into some problems with it not playing on someones older DVD player and even an older dvd player in a computer.

    you may have exceeded the total max bitrate for dvd. it's 10mbps and is the sum of the PEAK video bitrate + the total of all audio tracks.

    It has worked on 8 different bluray and dvd players along with computer dvd players. It was some older ones it did not work in. Would that make a difference.

    what brand of media ?

    As a test burn a disc at 2x and for SL dont pass the 4.3 gig limit ... see if the older units will play it ... some had issues where disc write speed exceeds 2x dont work.

    If the test disc works then the units are getting past their use by dates.
