I bought a movie a few months ago, and when I started to watch it, the image was weird. There was a horizontal "break" near the top of the frame. I immediately thought "I need to return this disc" - but I watched it anyway, because it was not too bad, and my wife and I were already set with our pillows, blankets and popcorn...
After I watched it and removed the disc from the player, I thought "what if I try again?"... and I did, and the image was perfect.
I guess sometimes there can be some data sync issues somewhere between the pickup and the HDMI out, that don't trigger the error detection algorythms.
