I'll try to clean mine with lense cleaner and see if it helps. I might have ONE good up5000, an up5000 with a bad loader, a good Toshiba A20 , a bad A20, an up5000 on the way with a cracked display, and Im thinking about an XA2 to go with a separate blu ray LOL. I have a good A20 whose loader can be used for the XA2 as a backup.
Do we believe the up5000 will get firmware upgrades for the trueHD problem? I just tried TopGun HD-DVD and White Noise HD-DVD and the Dolby-TrueHD dropouts are unbelievable.
edit: Well, I "cleaned" the discs with Eyeglass lens cleaner, no difference. On the up5000 Warner: House of Wax, Willy Wonka, Phantom of the Opera,Blood Diamond dont load ......Universal Combo format American Warewolf, Knocked Up, dont load
Heavy Pixilation : Batman Begins, Polar Express, GoodFellas. Light pixelation throughout Space Cowboys, Perfect STorm, 300, Superman the Movie, Troy.
23 Warner HD-DVDs seemed ok.
Now on the A20, all loaded EXCEPT Blood Diamond, Polar Express missing chapters, the ones I listed with "light pililation" I have not checked. Id imagine theyd be OK since the worst offenders passed the test.
