Hi, Some time ago I bought a JVC XV-N5, a great stand alone player, except for one thing: some copied DVD's freeze in the last 15-20 minutes. I noticed that at that moment the variable bitrate drops below a certain Mbps level. Apparently more people encountered this problem with their players, unfortunately I did not run into a solution. The strange thing was that these 'not too well' copied DVD's are working fine on some more straightforward DVD players. My guess as a 'newbie' is that the player has not got the capacity to either fill in (calculate) the missing bits, so it freezes the picture. Could this have to do with the progressive scanning feature? And is there any way to turn this feature off, or get some extra processing power in? And why does it 'always' seem to freeze at the final (DVD player too warm?). Please help.
