    I recently was able to make a Blu-ray of some HD content from my DVR. I did this by using a Hauppauge Colossus video card In my PC, recorded it in .ts format using the supplied WinTV software provided. I then cut out the commercials and did a "quickstream fix" using VideoRedo. I then took that file, and authored it to BD using multiAVCHD, and then burned it to disc using imgburn.

    On the authoring and burning, I am pretty new using both of those, so I left them mostly in the default settings. I did have imgburn do a "verify", I did click that button.

    The problem is in playback. I recently picked up a Pioneer BDP-62FD Bluray player. I also have a PS3 I play Blu Rays on. I tried the disc first on the Pioneer, and the playback was mildly "choppy". It just had a slight stutter to it, it seemed more noticeable on scenes of greater horizontal motion, but it was irritating to a degree.

    Just for kicks, I slapped it in the PS3 and it played beautiful.

    I checked to see if the Pioneer needed a firmware update, it did, so I updated it. No difference.

    Has anyone run into anything like this before? Is the PS3 just more forgiving, so to speak? Is it something I didn't do right in multiAVCHD? Other retail discs play great in the pioneer, but my homemade one, not so much.

    I guess I'm concerned that I didn't set up the authoring correctly, or optimally. Some day the PS3 may die, and I will depend on my Pioneer. If I don't figure this out, it won't be pretty.

    I just want to make the best disc I can, in short. Am I doing anything wrong? Anybody had or heard about a similar situation?

    Thank you

    Can you post the video details from the m2ts that multiAVCHD made? Use mediainfo, open m2ts, view->text, copy everything.

    I may be wrong but.....

    If your folder structure \AVCHD\BDMV\.... carries on to the burnt disk it is a AVCHD disk you have made and not a fully-compliant Blu-ray.

    I recall reading here at some time that these disks are close to fully-compliant but some players do have issues with them.

    That being said, the quoted bitrate is Blu-ray and higher than the AVCHD spec allows.

    So the issue may simply be media related and your Pioneer is not reading the disk as well as the PS3.

    I think I did everything right when I authored it. I selected BDAV when it was time to make a selection, the media info at the top says "BDAV" for format, and "BluRay Video" for format/info. But apparently there are other indications that point away from it being Blu.

    Was there something in the setup options in multiAVCHD that I didn't set right possibly?

    Puzzling.

    Maybe just try tsmuxer and output a blu-ray iso or blu-ray folder. If you don't need any menus then.

    There's not much to do but then I can't do much anyway.

    If this is in regards to imgburn, then yes. I didn't mess with anything except selecting "verify" and it defaults to udf 2.5.

    If there is a selection in multiAVCHD for this (I didn't see one) then I missed it.

    Yes I did mean the option in imgburn and udf 2.5 is correct.

    I never saw the need to use the BD option you did when creating videos with my own simple menus using MultiAVCHD so I always choose AVCHD (strict) when I use that program.

    That said it could also be an issue with the disc itself. One player might read it fine and another choke on it.
