Except, this will happen multiple times through out the movie, and it always happens in the same spot.
I watched a few other movies without incident, until I watched Munich. Same thing, it was skipping in the same place through out the movie, and always in the same spot. It started to get worse towards the end of the movie.
My brother-in-law and my parents watched both movies on their DVD players (one had a different LG dvd player), no issues.
Has anyone else experienced this? The only thing I can think of is that, I think, these movies did not start with the default resolution that I had set (1080i). I thought that maybe it was the movie, so I took Fearless back and exchanged for a new one. Tested it, and it happened again. Tested it on other machines and it did not happen again.
Some help would be greatly appreciated.
With increasing problems with my LG, I was able to get the deck replaced by LG, according to their work order.
I've hadn't had any of the issues I had previously, however I'm still having problems with Jet Li's Fearless. Is there anyone who has this movie that is experiencing the same problems?
The pause isn't as long as it was before (from half a second to a quarter of a second) but it is still happening. It's not like the pause that you normally would see when you the layer is changed. It's happening in several specific scenes of the DVD.
I've had family members test it on their DVD players and they've told me that they have not had any problems when watching my copy of the movie.
2 scenes that I can recall clearly this happening, was the in the beginning of the scene where Jet Li is fighting the wrestler. The camera is panning downward as they are showing the crowd in this circus-style tent. The other was the morning after Jet Li killed Chin. As the camera is panning down over the restaurant sign, it happens again.
I'm glad I had a gift card when I bought this DVD player. I don't think I'll be buying any LG products any time soon if this is an inherit flaw in all of the DN191H DVD players.
