Just purchased a Pana 35 which is a great player and does a fantastic job with regular DVD's but I noticed maybe once per disc it will "black out" for maybe one second. Usually on regular DVD's but has done it on Netflix blu-ray rentals too. Sometimes it won't do it at all on a movie but usually I will get one "black out" for about a second and then the entire rest of the movie plays fine. Almost always during the first half of the movie. Thanks for your input.
