If the thread was the first time the subject came up then it would still be around. However, the topic has been discussed many times in the previous *years* since the first HDM discs came out. Like somebody else said - it's not the format in general. It could be you picked a disc made from a bad/old master. Look in the BD disc Tier sticky thread at the top of the forum and watch a disc or two from Tier 0. If you can't see a difference, it's something on your end.
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work. -- Thomas Alva Edison
