    I have Panasonic BD80 player but in the last 2 weeks I have noticed flactuation in the sound levels and pixelization around 90 min mark (when plays BD discs).
    Is it time for replacement? How can I find out? :lease:

    HDMI cables work or they're faulty. High priced brands (Monster Cable is a fine example) are just a scam.

    You could try your player (and faulty discs) on a friend's machine...
