..just amazing that there are problems, such as microblocking, etc. with the present 'good' players and no such probelms on my old Sony of 3-4 years ago. My player went thru a DVD last eve and everything was perfect to my critical eye. I wonder why, in some aspects, we have taken a step backward in DVD player operation? And, these days, the prices are higher than what I paid. Wish someone could compare this new s97 with the new Sony at about same price.
I think this is about the third time you have posted virtually the same post wondering about problems and stating that the "old Sony" from 3-4 years ago is problem free and we "have taken a step back". What model is it? Is this model posted in the "Secrets of Home Video" shootout? If so, then have a look and then you may see what tests it passed or failed.

Give us some of your thoughts on your questions, or better yet, open a thread and post the questions.
I happy that you like your player. Although it might be hard to understand we like discussing problems and possible remedies. It's fun. When we know the model of your player perhaps we can then have the fun of criticizing its flaws -- in another thread.
