    Hi all

    Ok, ive got a Panny S97, with picture freezing on some discs. It seems to freeze for about 2 secs, then carry on playing fine, and only on certain dvds. This player has been Multi regioned, but wondering if anyone else has this problem?

    Thks in advance...

    Hi, I don't get this, but would it possibly be a bad layer transition (midway through the movie) ?

    Is it a single event - happens once per DVD - which would indicate slow layer change.
    Or is it a repetitive event - happens several times per DVD - which would indicate a problem with DVD or player.

    Do the DVDs in question have special features like seemless branching?

    unusual, but Nemo has 32 chapters, so it looks like its a layer transition.
    I can notice the transition on mine, but it's very slight, and to anyone who doesn't know it wouldn't be noticed.
