    So I tried to burn a DVD and I guess it was the first the it had been used to make a DVD movie, so 10.4.9 asks me to set the "Region code" or something. I'm in North America, so checking the reference map I'm supposed to choose Region 1, was this the right one to select?

    Next, so after doing this I proceed to burn my movie. When played back on my computer it shows fine: in colour and centerd on the screen. When played back on a stand-alone DVD player, the movie shows as black & white AND is shifted half way down the screen (top portion of screen is black, bottom half shows top portion of movie 'image'). Why did it do this and how can i correct it?

    Thanks. :confused:

    North America is Region 1. That is correct.

    10.4.9 has not been released yet, you might check to see which OS you have installed.

    was this a home movie you made, or did you rip something?

    is your DVD player connected to a TV with a built in VCR?

    My mistake, I meant 10.4.8 and it's a rip. Using the same process other DVD's have worked fine on the standalone, the TV is just a normal TV not a TV+something combo machine.
