First the good news.
My sub-woofer has just had a fantastic work out....
If not already done so, I can add one more burnable disc type to the list. I have a Fujifilm DVD+R DL that was burnt as a DVD Video from Nero 6 and it played pretty much without fault.
I played a couple of SD-DVDs and they also pretty much played without fault. There were a couple of times when the disc stopped (and my heart was in my mouth), but they continued on.
Now the bad news.
As titled, Top Gun didn't.
Chap2, 5:41 video glitch. No audio break up, didn't happen again.
Chap3, 15:44 total freeze up. We were at Mira Mar, with the text on the screen and the bike in the top left. I had long enough to go get paper, pen and write all this down.
Having read other posts on the 'feature', I took this oppotunity to test *every* button on the remote. I can confirm that the player did not respond to info etc (including all the tv buttons etc) and it did not respond to the buttons on the unit itself. It was power off time.
So I started it back up, jumped to before that area and the film ran to the end without further issue.
After this, I put in the TOS disc and confirmed ep2 as being unplayable.
I put TG back in and changed audio tracks. I went from DD 5.1 to DTS 7 channel. Film went straight through. So I stopped and restarted the film, confirmed that the audio was back at 5.1 and let it go. And it just went past that time.
So, I'm going to turn the player off and turn it on tomorrow night and see what it does.
More discs for my friend Rich to try......
