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.

What is model number of your Bose DVD player.

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.

Has a disk with error message will not open manually or with remote


Try inserting a DVD, a CD or a VCD to see if it happens to all disks.
- If it does, the Lens might be dirty and it's having a hard time reading the disks and you'd need to use a Disk Cleaner.
- if not, then the disc might no be supported by the unit. Check with your manual to see what are the supported disk format. (Is it RW+/- or R+).

Let me know what happens.
