I bought my 09FD around a year ago, but haven't used it much, as I only recently started adding components to my HT. I am now afraid that these read disc failures will start to happen to me eventually as well. =( And, as infrequently as I sit down to actually watch a blu-ray movie, I'm afraid my warranty will have expired if/when problems do occur. I'd rather not send it in for repairs until there is actually a problem, but a few months from now, or even a year down the line, who knows if Pioneer will even have the replacement parts necessary to fix the issue. It is kind of upsetting that this should even be happening in a $ 2k player.
On a different/slightly unrelated note, those of you that are using the analog outputs, can anyone recommend some decent cables? Also, is there a 09FD thread that has to do with connection types? I'd love to see some pics from people using the analog audio outs.
