    Only had my player for a matter of days and was eagerly awaiting delivery of my first hd-dvd.

    I am member of Easycinema online so decided to rent King Kong HD-DVD. The dvd took a little longer than normal to arrive.

    Inspected the disk when it arrived and there were a few scratches and marks on it; inserted disk and waited with baited breath....

    2 minutes later stuck with just black screen, listening to player just sounded like a clicking noise. All my other normal dvd's play fine.

    Do you think the disk is faulty ?

    Please help, im dying to see true HD quality...:confused:

    Hi,

    1.2 is the same mine had when I bought it, trie updating on the internet. This shouldn't matter when playing hd dvd's though. I'd say that the disc is faulty. Does sd dvd work?.

    Dimitri

    p.s. king kong is earthshatteringly beautiful though,:thumbsup:

    I can stand one feet away from the screen and I'll like the picture even better.

    Trie wiping the disc clean

    This is why I don't rent HD DVD/Bluray. These new players don't like any marks on the disks! Some of the normal DVD's I've rented in the past have had cracks in them:eek:

    Apparently Batman Returns picture and audio is exceptionally good. It's on my shopping list.

    Slightly OT, but was in town today buying the godfather trilogy boxset for £11.99 in virgin and had a browse through the HD and BR selection - i was very supprised at the prices! pretty much min £25+! where as tesco BB is ~£19.
    And the megastores wonder why they are going out of business! Sure this is discussed elsewhere but just reminded of it.:eek:
