Those are the most annoying problems. The ones that are not repeatable in the same spot. I've never bothered to write down where they occur 1st when viewing the entire movie. I will pay closer attention this time. I'm viewing it now since our annual conference is now done and home is in between where we were and work is so, "working" from home this afternoon.
I suspect this problem is a time sensitive one, like something gets out of sync once played for a specified amount of time. I have never been able to FF/RW and get the same result or even a skip within several min. of each one. That being the case, unless this is a documented known badly mastered disc with a code workaround, I doubt that it has been corrected. I remember some reporting no problems, so could just be a bad batch. Another theory is heat. The 5K warms discs up pretty good (at least all 3 of mine do) and is worse when mounted in a rack with other components stacked on it like mine is. So the disc might be getting hot and causing some issues. I've never ran into that before or since, so I doubt it. I did not look at my disc for laser rot (this is a Disney and not a Sony title, for some reason I was thinking it was Sony earlier). If I did have rot or a scratched/dirty disc the skips would be around the same place.
