Having VERY bad luck with Warner HD-DVDs! - Page 17

As mrkludge has often told me proper cleaning sometimes helps

"Freezing in the middle of the movie", especially in re: DVDs, suggests the player is having problems with the layer change. Could be a focussing problem, or dirt on the lens, or on the disc, or that the player is having trouble tracking at the outer edge of the disc (it tracks inside-to-outside then changes layers there) and if either the disc is warped (not likely) or the transport has aged/weakened (more likely) playback can suffer.

Watched my "Polar Express" HD-DVD (Warner) this evening. It played perfectly and was thoroughly enjoyable.

Update: subsequently watched the Universal combo HD-DVD "Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas". It hiccuped once in chapter 6, so I cleaned the disc and then it played all the way through just fine.

Am in the middle of watching the Bourne trilogy at the moment. Great movies on a great format.

Happy to hear you guys not having trouble. Wish I could say the same. My issues aren't hardware related since my problem discs are still problem discs regardless of the player I try but the studios we're stand up enough to swap me for blu copies. Good customer service is so rare these days.

I watched all of the first season of Star Trek. All discs worked with no problems. Good because it isn't the cheapest thing available on Blu-ray and it wasn't the cheapest thing on HD-DVD either.

The two things I noticed. Load times on older players (Blu-ray included) are so much slower than players of today. Also with Star Trek there was a bug that if you left the episode screen running for too long, it would try to play the episode you selected but fail and return you to the screen. I had to reload the disc to fix that.

I got a copy of the 1st season too and all discs worked just fine

as well. Yes, loading times are quite long in comparison to the

newest players but watching the bad make-up of Spock and

Bones on the first episodes thanks HD is priceless :-)

 

Yesterday (tried) to watch Poseidom, but both copies that I have

are rotten ... damn it! Prior to that I could enjoy Blade Runner

- Final Cut without problems.

 

Cheers, Meriade.

Watched about 6 Warner HD DVDs in the last two days, every one played perfectly. Hopefully this is all more isolated than it seems.
