    Hi,

    I have a Sony DAV-SR4W Home Cinema system (6 months old) and a Pioneer DVR-420H DVD Recorder.

    I recently purchased Oceans 12 on DVD and put it in the Sony Player. I immediately experienced stuttering whilst it played the menu introduction and then lengthy freezing, stuttering and skipping forward by several minutes in the actual film. I then tried playing the disc in the Pioneer system and it was fine. I took the disc back and purchased from a totally separate retailer (in case it was a faulty batch) and tried again and the same problem occured.

    Why would a disc play fine in a cheap recorder but not in a very expensive home cinema system?

    Out of all the DVDs I own I have never experienced this playback problem before on the sony system (except for The Return of the King).

    Any help would be gratefully received.

    Thanks
