Problems w/ Apex 1110 : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

I recently purchased an Apex AD 1110 DVD player which supports VCD and SVCD playback. But I cannot get all of my SVCDs and VCDs to play. It will load and then the PBC is shown as off and that is it, I cannot do anything with it after that, only tells me with "playback only", yet some of my other SVCDs will play no problem but I did notice that the PBC was on. I cannot find anyway to turn PBC on or off in the setup menus. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

The Apex forum at might be able to help. Have you used different programs to author your VCDs and SVCDs? For example, if you drag and drop video files into Nero's VCD or SVCD template, Nero does the authoring. Nero does some not quite compliant things with VCDs and especially SVCDs and that could be causing you to have problems. If you are burning image files created by a program such a VCDeasy, I would expect those to work OK because VCDeasy does author compliant VCDs and SVCDs and you can burn the resulting image file with anything, including Nero.

Try hitting the orange button on the remote, which shuts the unit down, then starting it up again. It works every time for me, but it is the only way to get the PBC "on." It almost never starts the first time with "PBC on."
