Hello,


Just wondering if anyone else have had problems viewing DVDs with their Panny E80. The movie would freeze for about 15 seconds after 1 hr and 20 mins into the movie. This has happened with 50% of the rentals that i have watched. My Apex DVD player plays the DVDs without interuption.


Is it the quality of the DVD rentals or my player that is giving me the problem?


Thanks

That is around the time when the DVD player switches from the first to the second layer of two layer commercial disks. There is always a slight pause, my E80 hesitates for about a second. 15 seconds is too much time. If it happens on all disks would get it repaired, if it happenns on one disk, you have a bad disk.

I find that the Pannys are very picky with rentals (or scratched disks in general). I have 2 Panny players and 2 recorders and they all have issues with rentals (even after cleaning the disks). My XBox usually plays the bad disks without issue.


One thing I haven't tried yet is cleaning the lens on the Pannys to see if it reduces the problems.
