    not sure whether this is the right place for this but here goes.

    I have noticed when playing a number of DVDs on my Sony DVPNS305 there seems to be a pause for about a second normally midway through the film.

    It always happens in the same place on each film.

    Noticed it last night on Dogma. I seem to rember it also happened on Gladiator.

    Any ideas

    Thanks
    Ste

    Layer change. It's normal.

    thanks nathan

    I suppose it would be too much to expect for the DVD makers to put the layer change at a scene change rather than in the middle of a good scene.

    or am just being picky

    They do sometimes try to put at a scene change,but they more often that not,put it at a scene pause in the film,where there is no or little movement,so as you don't notice the layer change so much.

    It is possible to have a seamless layer change,but this goes outside the DVD spec,apparently and could cause even more problems.
