    Hello all, I am new to this forum so please bear with me...
    I have just bought a Toshiba 32zp48 and RDXS32 from Digital Direct.
    all arrived smoothly. the RDXS needs a degree in rocket science to use but I'll get there. One question I have is during playback of DVD, the picture hesitates or stutters a bit, is it a setting thing or a fault on the player. Toshiba refered me back to Digital Direct but their fault reporting is on a website form and no reply in 2 days. Anyone any ideas ?

    Thanx

    Have you tried playing back the film again?

    If the stuttering occurs in the same place, it is probably a layer change.
    Some DVD players / recorders are better than others and have a sufficiently large memory built in to compensate for this.

    The Tosh X32 is not the best for layer changes.... I have one and it does the same! It is not a fault as such but could have been designed to cope better. Picture Quality is good though!

    Verdict: Nice unit... could do better! :rolleyes:

    I havent checked if the prob appears in the same places i will have to try that, but it is on all the discs I have tried so far, Kill Bill, Private Ryan, LOTR 2, It doesnt seem to be confined to "action" scenes, but in quieter scenes too. If it is a layer change thing is it something I will have to live with ?

    Doesn't sound like a layer change now you mention the rest of it. Strangely enough, I have just finished watching Kill Bill Vol 1 through my X32 and Sanyo projector and did not notice any change at all.

    I suggest that there may well be a fault with your machine / dirty discs?

    A bit more investigating required here..... By the way, I have the same TV as well. Not a bad TV!

    Yeah T.Vs a cracker, specially now its linked up with some IXOS leads. Dolby 5.1 is great too. this prob is taking the edge off it a bit, if only I could get a bit of customer support on a £1400 order thats less than a week old. Or am I asking too much ???

    You might want to check around your electrical circuit for noisy stuff... Central heating switching on when your DVD stutters? etc... Don't really know any scientific way of doing it but maybe another factor.

    Good to hear :thumbsup:

    I have seen quite a few threads with X32 owners having problems with their units. Toshiba seem to have a few Quality issues... If you get a good one, you'll be pleased with it!
