[linux-dvd] Re: DVD Playback works fine except 2 things: DVD-R and PAL 60
Quoting Nils Heidorn (email@example.com):

Please note that firstname.lastname@example.org is mainly related to DVD products
developed by convergence (e.g. LSI PCMICA DVD driver or some stuff we did
not release yet).
Anyway, I'll try to help as good as I can.

In shouldn't make a difference at application level because the DVD Video
Standard allows both uppercase and lowercase names for directories and
files. But if the DVD part of VDR only looks for uppercase entries this
could be the problem (just an assumption).
I guess the real problem is that there are 2 different DVD File System
Specifications: for DVD-ROM and DVD-R (beside of the General/Authoring
Versions and the DVD-RAM & DVD-RW Versions). I suppose that the
specifications are different on some topics and that the Open Source Linux
solutions only "comply" to the DVD-ROM Version.

Maybe one of the driver developers can make a statement on this.
