I wish that every player/device that has any form of processing ability had this feature. Should have bought an Oppo when I bought my Yammy.

My guess is that it is disc rot. There are no WB HD play issues that I am aware of but HD titles from that company seem to be more susceptible to the rot issue. I haven't seen any of those issues in...

Not a problem. I undestand. And yes HD-DVD I think is the shortest lived home video format. Just under 2 years. Even the DTheater format on D-VHS lasted longer (just under 3 years). D-VHS itself...
