    Can anyone comment on this?

    I think I've read before that certain DVD's make the Toshiba's counter act a little funny. I've had two SD900E's (which are sublime) and on DVD's I've noticed the counter can often count a bit erractically like 0--1--2--3---4-5--6--7--8--9-- if you know what I mean.

    Anyway I think I noticed this on my last SD900 and its on this one to and I think I heard someone mention it on the SD100E.

    Any ideas? I do normally switch the display off but was just curious.

    P.S. CD's and VCD's are fine. Player is Region 2 only.

    Thanks,

    Damian:p

    My SD900e does the same,with the counter playing catch-up then
    slow down every few seconds.I don't remember seeing my Sony 505 player doing the same,perhaps it's a quirk that affects only the Toshibas.I've no idea why it is,anyone else have any ideas?

    Thanks Peter at least its not just me.

    Its weird but obviously some quirk resulting from the SD900e being the best DVD player ever:)

    I may enquire with Toshiba. You never know there may be a firmware patch or something (should be available on CD-Rom).

    Thanks,

    Damian:)

    Damian,

    No argument with your third paragraph either. Don't hold your breath though. Firmware upgrades for the SD900E don't exactly fall off trees, there are threads elsewhere about the mythical firmware upgrade that endows the SD900E with PAL Progressive but so far it hasn't put in an appearance. In fact I haven't heard of any user upgrade via cd for this player. I would love to be proved wrong though.

    I've got a Sanyo AVD-8501 and i've been seeing the same problem, it doesn't seem to be doing any harm, but it is a bit of an annoyance though.
