But set top dvd players are a different story. They typically aren't as forgiving of this lower reflective surface on the dvd as your mac. Might want to try using Dvd-R instead and burning no higher than 4x.

This is due to
• brand of DVD
• type of DVD
• burn speed
• and eventually - free space on start-up hard disk - very low and iDVD get's funny.
• DVD-R (no +R or +/-RW)
• x4 or x1 burn speed
• I never go under 25Gb free space on Start-up/ Mac OS hard disk (< 2GB and iDVD
