Rick,

I have watched eight HD titles, including Bourne, on my A2 and everything has worked perfect. I did upgrade to 2.7..why don't you try that and if the problem persists, take it back for exchange or warranty.

Greg the 2.7 update should be here any day now, Rick (wid) downloaded it for me and mailed it so whenever it gets here I'll upload it...if that doesn't solve the problem I'll take the player back.

I also have the A2 and it has not skipped once during a movie.

maybe some of them have problems and some don't

Wayne, as you know, HDMI and DVI cables themselves are identical; just the connectors on the ends differ. So, HDMI/DVI cables with the different connectors on the ends work well and the DVI factor shouldn't cause any difficulty on the setup you describe.

The last couple of movies I got from netflix had no scratches, no finger prints... of course the Alison Krauss and Union Station - Live DVD had no center track either - in any format. Although, I did have a center channel on the root menu only with my Oppo, but not my D2 with this CD. Weird.

I have had no skipping issues with my D2, but the Oppo is far better at upconverting than the D2.

The only ones I get with no scratches are either brand new or obscure foreign movies. Not very popular, the latter ones.

Based on the above comments I may just rethink the purchase, it's certainly not the money, it's the possible frustration I wish to avoid.

Then again standing in line at 6am in freezing temperatures waiting for the store to open might just be what I need

Here's another A2 owner that hasn't had any problems whatsoever, and I'm playing rented Blockbuster HD-DVDs that have seen some action (I don't understand why people can't handle DVDs carefully \:\( ). Just watched the Startdust HD-DVD last night, which I, surprisingly, enjoyed very much.

I'm sorry to hear you're having the problems you're having, Rick.

MY girlfirend and I watch stardust in the theaters a while back. It actually was not a bad movie, and different than your typical movie that comes out every week.

Jack, I'm hoping the 2.7 firmware will take care of the issue. It just happens every so often but whenever it does start skipping it skips a lot and I have to power the A2 off and reboot, and other than the Ultimatum disc it has been perfectly fine on all of our other HD-DVDs ... also every thing I have put in the player has been my own DVDs, it hasn't had a rental in it yet.

Maybe that's what it needs, a proper break-in. ;\)
