Rick, it may be that the load time includes the powering up phase, too. My HD-DVDs start running after 10 seconds or so, but the real wait is when I power the XA2 on. I read these new machines are more akin to computers than DVD players, and thus take more time to power on and off.

Honestly, the load time doesn't bother me.

Looks like the 2.7 firmware update cured the skipping with the SD-DVDs and after returning the HD-DVD Bourne Ultimatum disc for another one everything seems to be up and running just fine, great movie BTW. I'm starting to *really* like this player now. \:\)

Where did you guys hear about the one minute load times? Even prior to any updates ours was never near half of that, it is probably in the 15 second time frame.


Good to hear Rick.

Thanks Jack, man it's sooo nice to be able to watch a SD DVD now and not have to wonder not *if* but *when* will it start skipping. I had to run the A2 through it's paces though, whenever I first uploaded the 2.7 firmware I threw in a SD disc and let it play while I was doing other things around the house, whenever that disc was finished I loaded up another disc ... did that continuously for three days just to see if the skips would return and they never did.

Sean, you know my good friend Rick (Wid) and I were on the phone today and that very subject came up regarding the load time of these units whenever they are powered up, I was telling Rick that I usually turn our A2 on whenever I get home work, regardless of what time we'll watch a movie or even if we won't just to have it ready whenever we do watch something. I'm guessing the unit can be left powered up 24/7 .... no harm, no foul, right?

Wayne, make sure to upload the latest firmware for your new A3 ... and let us know how you like it, I'm now very happy with ours.

Rick and his wife are coming down to spend a few days with us next week and he *says* he's going to show me how to download the firmware updates onto a disc ... in return I *have* to show him how we true Floridians upload the boat with big game fish from the wild blue yonder. He has his work cut out for him, that's for sure.

Shoot, if that's the price for a fishing trip I'm gonna drive over right now. . . ;\)

I love that these forums have actually created good friendships. We've all heard how careful one must be on the internet, particularly children, and with good reason. But, we don't hear much about the fact that there are a LOT of terrificly good people on the internet, and that lasting and true friendships are quite common.

You two families have a great time together. But Wid, I think you're going down too early. To me, winter doesn't really get ridiculously old until February.

(Note to self: Find a good internet friend in Florida. Oh wait! Forgot I've got a brother in Ft. Myers \:\) )

You are right Jack, Feb is one of the worst months around here but I look forward to getting out of here anytime in the winter. I want to make it down during good fishing weather, Rick says fishing is good in Jan.

Yeah, the best thing about February in these climes is that it's only 28 days long. Unfortunately, this coming year, it's 29 days \:\( . In a typical winter that extra day feels like a week.

You're right, though. Getting outa here anytime during winter is a relief.

You just need to go out and have fun in the cold. Actually, this particular day was sunny and warm (for the season).
