Thanks for your comments about freezing during playback. Here are some more details about my installation, my player is connected to a Pioneer 507XD plasma and a Pioneer Ax3 receiver. It is connected with hdmi on the plasma and with analog out to the receiver.I've experienced freezing with rental movies but also with new blu-ray discs, for example Band Of Brothers disc 2 and 4 but also The Matrix and X-Men 2. Most movies play fine without freezing up problems, i have these freezing problems on maybe 2-3/10 movies i play.Discs are used with care, no finger prints, etc. .. For me it is also the case that playback continues after a few seconds after freezing, and after I stop playback and return to the track where it first jammed, everything plays normal. I have this freezing issue with Quick Start on and with Quick Start off. My Pioneer 507XD can handle 24P, had no problems on playback with my former Pioneer BDP-LX71 but i had many,many,many other issues with this machine.Then i bought this Panasonic, where otherwise I'm extremely satisfied with, only this freezing issue...Excuse my poor English.
