Hi, These machines are supposed to be the same so I include them in the same post, not sure exactly what the Cambridge one is called tho. Anyway I know someone with the Compacks and it is genearlly great. However when playing the matrix there are a few problems. Basically every now and again it stops for about a second, it does this about 3 times during the movie for no apparent reason. The DVD itself is actually really mucked up, on some older players when you got to the last few chapters most of the screen would go blocky and there would be loads of pixcelletion. The Compacks plays this fine, no artefacts or problems like this at all, however just the stops which don't appear on the player that couldn't play the end chapters. This doesn't seem to happen on other DVD's used on the Compacks so I was just wondering if anyoen else has one of these machines has the problem or not or if it is just the DVD itself.? The Compacks seems to be great a reading all types disks so is it possible that the player is actully reading the disc better and picking up the faults in the dvd that older players just miss?
