Joseph Tate reports that Apple has advised customers experiencing difficulty with PowerBook G4 DVD output to wait for the release of Mac OS X 10.2 to remedy video defects. The major Mac OS X update, due out in August, will fix a glitch that causes white areas of DVD movies to appear black when outputted through S-Video, according to an Apple representative. Apple's stance, however, has left some users unhappy with the several-month wait. An Apple support discussion forum thread contains customer accounts of the problem (PowerBook G4 Computers > DVD).
