dvd,

this is the only disc my 900e has ever had a problem with. It freezes or stutters several times during the film. A quick press of the fast rewind button followed by 'play' continues the film as normal until the next hiccup.

Hope this puts your mind at rest :)

Most definitely.

It sounds more like a faulty DVD than an incompatibility. I have had 2 DVDs in my life that have behaved similarly (freezing, jittering, etc) - in both cases it was down to bad DVDs not incompatibilities and a replacement has been fine.

Try a good wipe of the playing surface first and see if that helps but it's more likely to be something non visible like the bonding of the two disks being a bit cack in this particular instance.

I have exactly the same problem. Not only does it freeze at several points throughout, but there's a quite a bit of HF distortion in the mix too...sounds like there might be a batch of bad discs, but why have no non-900E owners reported this :confused:

Well, perhaps DVD and Daninthemix should share who they bought their disks from, 'cause if it's the same supplier, that would really suggest a bad batch.....

Distortion in HF mix wouldn't suggest a bad disk to me, as if it results in sound faults it would also register visual faults too unless this distortion occurs in same places as skipping. Otherwise, just suggests a bad mix. Presume Dan that you also have the R1 as opposed to the R3?

R3? No I have the R1. I bought from Play...they've said I can have it replaced, but a mate of mine is borrowing it at the mo...I'll have to ask him if he has had any problems with this disc.
