Fine. No complaints.
However, I've only been using the Venturer for HD DVDs (and not that many as it's not my primary TV). For DVDs I've usually been using a different player, because that player is region free and it's much faster at startup.
So, I don't know if there are DVD incompatibilities or not. I do know that my Toshiba HD-A2 has had a few issues with DVDs, even though it has worked great with HD DVD. The main issue I've had with DVD on my A2 is the picture locking up once in a while if I skip back and forth too much. I've had to power off to get things back to normal. (If I just let the DVD play normally, it always works fine. I've not had an incompatible DVD yet with my A2.) I don't remember getting this on the Venturer, but like I said, I generally do not use the Venturer for DVD.
BTW, the configuration menus for the Venturer look basically identical to my A2. This is not surprising, as the Venturer is just the A3 with a different shell.
Well, I do have one complaint, even for HD DVD playback. I find the fan a little loud. Usually it's not a problem because I have the volume turned up anyway. However, I notice it when I turn down the volume if people are sleeping nearby or whatever.
