Jason I'm not understanding where the upgrading part comes into play? If the A2 is skipping with my 635, what's to keep it from skipping after I spend another $500 (min?) for an upgraded receiver? Maybe I could then hear all of the minute details within the skips?

I'm thinking the closet upgrade would be the best upgrade for this little jewel and my system.

From the 'SXRD' thread in the Home Theatre forum.....

I think they should have perfected the technology before they sold it



I absolutely agree!

Sorry, upgrading receiver won't help the skipping issue, I misunderstood. Like I said before the skipping with the SD discs, I am sure, is due to that layer break, but the skipping with HD discs I don't know. I haven't been looking for solutions as I don't have a HD player.......yet.

Out of curiousity anyone know if the BR players are having these skipping issues?

Jason I'm not sure so many of the HD-DVD player owners are having issues with the skipping, I've heard mention of an 'occasional' skip, in my estimation once is unacceptable but I believe more of these players are doing this skipping more often than not than is being reported.

The whole HD-DVD thing and loss less sound would be an awesome adaption to any body's system but I feel at this time it's not without issue and to expand what Terzaghi stated above regarding the Sony SXRD...

"I think they should have perfected the technology before they sold it"

Plain and simple.

My A2 does not skip at all on any type of disks. Maybe you got a bad one? Maybe you should see if you can exchange it?

Rick, stop using all your DVDs as frisbees and drink coasters. No more skipping.

Do you know anybody else with the same player? You could try your disc in theirs and see. Or they could bring theirs to try it in your system. That might be the quickest way to see if it's your player.

Sean, you mean watch 'em only? Hmmm ... I never made the connection.

That doesn't seem to be too practical though, just how in the hell am I supposed to justify buying this stuff to my wife if it can't be of more use around the house?


Lorenzo and Skyhawk...my good buddy Wid is coming down to spend a week with us here in a couple of weeks, I'll have him verify the skipping and them maybe a return might be in order.

Judging from the DVDs I get from Netflix, a lot of people don't just watch the movies, they place the discs in the driveway and back over them, too.

Ha ha. Seriously, I've had my share of playback issues with HD DVD discs. I've had to wait on firmware updates to play a few titles, which, as you say, is unacceptable. These blue laser formats were in development before DVD was even released onto the market, so the half-assed launches from both camps baffles me. I know that technology is only getting more complicated, but it's unreasonable to part with so much money and get such a bumpy ride out of it.

Our apologies Wayne ...

As you can probably see by now things haven't changed much since you've been away ... we can still hijack a thread now as well as we did prior to your departure.

What was your question again?
