DVD Playback glitches

When i burn a dvd and then play it back on my tv i get glitches where either the video gets all pixelated or the audio makes a beep noise or it pauses and skips a part. This happens in the same places i have dma enabled ultra 33. I'm running openSUSE 10.2 and i burn with k3b.

You need to burn slower. For DVD playback and maximum compatibility, I burn at 4x only. My PC DVD drive can read disks that have been burned faster, but the two standalone players I have won't.

I received this tip from my DVD burner manufacturer. Apparently, faster burns cause the shape of the phase-change area on the disk to change, which causes problems for standalone players.
