This problem to fix it is so simple it was hard to figure out...all you have to do is change the file name and add (.avi) to the end and your set.


You got the xvid source code from www.xvid.org. It’s useless unless you’re a programmer. Get the binaries from http://www.koepi.org instead.


it supports all formats, but if you read the above again
you will see they don't mention support for DVD+R (only DVD+RW). Is this
a typing error or does this drive not support DVD+R. Somebody told me
that with DVD devices you have to check very carefull in the specs if it
really supports all the formats and not to assume anything if it's not
in the specs, so therefore would like to know if anybody who has this
drive can confirm if this drive really doesn't support DVD+R

The format not supported is created from the TV, the particular connection choice you used is marked on the TV, one set of connections might be labeled: 480I only, 480I to 720P only.

There should be a couple choices of connections from the DVD player to the TV. This particular DISK is sending a signal that is either above or below the rated connection choice you selected.

generally if you have a component set of cables, [three colors video only], these are the connections that are problematic

Look to see if there is a s-video, or rca connection, my guess is that if you put another non hd disk in the player it would play.

write me at service@emrrepair.com, I have witnessed this situation many time, and it is always the input on the TV that is the issue.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, would suggest to reset everything or unplug from the mains both the Bosch DVD player as well as the TV unit. Unplug for say 30 minutes or so. Pls postback the model number of the Bosch DVD.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

My bose 321 system says format not supported when i try to play dvd


Could be dual layer DVD? Older players often won't run these. Try it on single layer DVD's. Some players won't run DVD's that have been burnt on a PC. If same message on DVD's that have played in the past, then have a look at player menu system - could need to be re-set up.

Bose cine mate speakers


No it won't be like surround sound, but you'll have the next best thing: a nice, powerful, natural Hi-Fi sound. I have a 46 inch 1080p Sony connected to a Sony Blu-Ray and Bose Cinemate Speakers. No complicated rear speakers wiring, no awkward center speaker to hide. The only drawback is that Bose doesn't have (yet) a code to operate the Blu-ray player with the Cinemate remote control.

Hope this helps to make your decision.

ERROR MESSAGE


maybe the DVD player you got is not supporting all DVDs from around the globe. There is this thing called NTSC region 1 for Americas, region 2 for Europe, Region 3 for Asia, Region 0 for everything. I don't know the other regions but that must have been the problem.

Bose Lifestyle 38 Unsupported Format message


All you have to do is carefully take the top off and clean the "Iris" which is the reader with a little alcohol and cotton swab. Bose will charge $165 plus shipping to do this. Go to website metacafe.com and search how to clean DVD players and it will show a video, easy to understand.
