Hi all, Just under three years ago I bought a Philips DVD950 player and had it upgraded by the dealer to play R1 DVDs. Until the last couple of months it has behaved perfectly. However, a month or so back I had to change "A Bugs Life" (R2) as it wouldn't play. I could hear the disc spinning in the tray but the menu wouldn't diisplay. The surface of the disc appeared fine. Now tonight, a second disc - "The Mask" (R2) also won't play and the surface of the disk is absolutely perfect. I've never used a DVD cleaner so do I need to? Or has the player developed a fault which would really annoy me as it's had reasonably light use and has not been abused by children. What are your views on Philips players and this one in particular? I was considering a Denon 3800 Mk2 but after the posts here it's doubtful I'll risk it. What alternatives are worthy of consideration for a budget of up to £550 that would give me better picture and sound quality than the 950? Requirements are multi-region but progressive scan isn't mandatory as a plasma or LCD display is still some way off although if it doesn't add significantly to the cost it's not a problem. My setup is JVC 32" 100Hz TV, Sky+, Denon A10SE amp, B&W CM4, B&W CMC, B&W DM600 S3. High quality cables used throughout. Any advice is appreciated, thanks.
