Well it happened......... I spent months trying to decide weather to buy one or not and finally, talked myself in to getting it. After just 3 days and 3 films later....i was watching Close Encouters and half way through the film, it starts freezing, every 5 or 10 seconds, for around 3 mins....then the freezing starts getting longer and then it starts freezing for around 5 seconds...i can hear the laser trying to find the data and the front panel keeps changing from G to V, then back again and then it skips about 3 to 4 seconds of the film. Am i the first to have the dreaded Denon freezing,skipping, on the 2900, or has anyone else........?? At the mo, i am thinking......that is it...take it back and get a refund. Or is it worth trying a replacement.................!!!!!!! Or is this ganner be another 2800/3800/A1 and will carry on freezing for the next 3 years untill they decide to change the laser unit.
