    Is there such a thing as a dvd player what does not have problems with any discs at all.

    It would be difficult to answerr this one without buying a copy of every disc ever released anywhere in the world and trying to play it.

    I have a Hong Kong spec. Pioneer 505. It has never failed to play any disc completely and perfectly*, any region. I have over 200. It has now been consigned to my cupboard full of old but serviceable equipment.

    I upgraded it to a Pioneer 737, UK spec, bought ready-chipped from Sevenoaks HiFi. I haven't yet played all 200 discs in it, but it has never failed to play any of the (probably 100+) discs I have played from regions 1, 2 and 4. I particularly tested it with discs that some people have had problems with.

    So, I guess the answer to your question is.....I think so. Pioneer.

    (* actually not quite true; lip-synch drift was evident on Lost in Space R1)

    LV426 is quite right.

    You also have to consider that many of the problems lie with the dvd not the player. Disney are notorious for breaking the dvd guidelines.
