I assume you've tried another disk to rule in or out that it's a problem specific to the disk that doesn't play correctly.
If it happens with other movies, one would think it's a player problem.
If this was a universal problem with the A2, you would expect to see innumerable posts about the problem. But you don't.
If it's the player, how about thinking about exchanging it. My A2 works perfectly.
To help you, you need to do a little more work and provide more information. BTW, your thread title should be more specific.
I posted the threat out of sheer frustration. I waited for over week for the A2 to get here, then waited another couple of days to get everything ready for our first HD DVD viewing, had 4 HD movies on hand and wanted to wao myself as well as my wife.
I am just frustrated that even after updating the firmware, the player is freezing at totally random places on different HD DVDs. I can understand if there is a scratch or dirty disc or if it was freezing at the same spot every time, but its not the case.
I know that the forums can make it seem like a lot of people are having problems, just because mostly the people who are having issues are the ones posting threads, that said, all the posts in the "A2 problems" thread as well as the other 2 people I know who own one and are on their 2nd A2, makes me wonder if there is a bigger problem.
I ignored the problems my friends were having by thinking they were exceptions, and the good deal on Amazon made my decision even easier, but I did not expect to have my HD DVD experience ruined by a Dud.
A replacement is on its way and I now have to wait another week or more to try my luck yet again.
