    Hi there,

    I've been watching a lot of dvds so far, and find that the layer change is awful. I have a pioneer dv545 and some layer changes are ok, but some are bloody awful.

    The question is:

    Can i add a memory buffer device to my dvd so that the layer changes stop? I know denon has this in their dvds, but can you install a similar device into other dvd players? I don't want to buy another new dvd player!

    Thanks

    I wouldn't imagine so, because the firmware of the player would have to be rewritten to recognise and address the additional memory. The memory would also have to be hard wired into the player, ie soldered to the mainboard, but where would it go? My Samsung 709 suffers from the same problem, along with a low-power laser. Scratched discs (rentals etc) skip, freeze etc.
