    I also have a pioneer 717 which has had no previous disc problems except the new r1 release of gladiator which u mention on a previous post. just after the layer change my picture breaks up in bits of cubes and the sound drops out this lasts for about a minute then it seems to sort its self out.
    please let me know if u are having simular problems. many thanks Jas.

    From what you describe Jas, it sounds like your disc is scratched or
    has fingerprints. My copy is OK, I am just a bit disappointed with
    the location of the layer change. For such a high-profile title, a
    little fore-thought could have made the change transparent.

    That is weird, definatly weird. I also have a 717 and the picture on my copy of Gladiator also broke up almost exactly as you explained Jas. I've experienced this type of thing before and it's always been because of a dirty disc - as before I removed the disc, gave it a wipe and replaced it. Luckily I didn't have the problem again. It just seems strange that we both had the same problem, at the same place, using the same player. [​IMG]

    Yea, the layer change is a really obvious on Gladiator - whoever decides where the layer change goes on a disc must be an idiot!

    has anyone tried it on a 919, this is very similar to the 717, and I have just ordered a copy of Gladiator, i hope it dont do that to mine.
