DVD Burners

Are all DVD burners equal?

I've got a Sony DW-G120A.

While I'm happy with the quality of the mpeg2 videos I'm rendering to my hard drive, I'm disappointd that there's some edge distortion when I burn to DVD.

Software is DVD Architect.

The DVD burner just writes digital data to disk and shouldn't introduce any distortion in the image. Not sure what's going on, but the data on your DVD should be exactly the same as the file on your computer. If it looks different between your computer screen and TV then I'd suspect the TV or the analog circuits in your DVD player.

Sorry, I'll elaborate.

The mpeg2 file I create in Vegas looks great on my 20 inch LCD monitor when viewed in Movie Player from my hard drive but not so good when played back on the DVD I created in Architect, even though it told me there would be no re-compression.

It also shows on my 32 inch Sony high def (1080) crt Television.

There's a bit of jaggedy edge on a diagonal object in the frame which only shows after I burn to DVD.

Ok.

I've just re=imported the video component from the DVD in question, rendered it to the hard drive as an mpeg again and viewed it in Movie Player.

Looks fine. Yet on my computer DVD player and my consumer DVD player it has these (interlace?) lines.
