    Hello all. I have just bought the above disc from CDWow at a good price, after the discount! However, I have noticed problems with the sound reducing in volume on many different parts of the film (not using DTS track). Also, on several panning scenes there appears to be a slight 'jerkiness' to the picture. CDWow have been really helpful and sent me out a replacement Region 3, but this is exactly the same. I am using a Tosh SD220 MR (Richer Sounds Mod) set to Auto (video setting) along with a Tosh Tv that can play Pal & NTSC (again set to auto). Does anyone know if this disc has known problems, or if not any advice would be welcome. I am not having problems with any other discs, although they are all Region 2. BTW, does Region 3 use Pal or NTSC? Thanks in advance, Chris.

    R3 discs are NTSC, that might be causing the jerky picture.

    Thanks for the reply Will K. The 'jerkiness' I have encountered is only on 1 or 2 scenes. Usually, if it was a problem re. NTSC, would I expect problems throughout the film? I recently bought a Philips DVD for my parents which was set to PAL. I saw the 'jerkiness' right from the start when playing a R3, until I changed the DVD setting to 'Auto'. Can this problem be intermittent? Thanks again, Chris.

    Thanks all for the replies. Sounds like it is probably not the disc. It is the only NTSC disc I have at the moment and the vast majority of it plays fine. Have there been any probs like this with the ToshSD220 MR? I can't find anything since last years 1.5 firmware update after problems arose with playing "The Matrix". BTW, I have 1.5 firmware. The Tosh player doesn't have a NTSC option, but says "Pal or Auto", and the TV says PAL, Auto, 443NTSC or 358NTSC. Currently both set to auto, but which NTSC should be the one? Any further thoughts would be welcome. Thanks, Chris

    I've got a chipped tosh SD 2109 and a tosh 32" TV and I had similar problems when I played Resident Evil R1 Superbit.

    I had both the player and TV set to AUTO. The problem went away when I switched the TV over to NTSC - I can't remember if I chose 358 or 443 - just try them both and it should be obvious when you choose the wrong one as the picture will look terrible.
