    Hey folks -

    It would seem that there is a problem with the Blake's 7 set released just a week ago that I thought I'd pass along. On a great number of players, it seems that the B7 discs freeze, skip or lock up. Not all of them mind you, but quite a few.

    (I would be one of the unlucky ones - my Malata DVP-520 skips at the layer change.)

    I'd post the link where I found more information, but this stupid forum wont let me. So figure it out for yourselves:

    If you want to email the BBC themeselves about the matter - send it here: support. bbcmultimedia@bbc. co. uk

    Disc 1 of my set froze at the layer change on my JVC 500 also. Fast forwarded through it. I guess it's good to know that it's the disc and not the player.

    I've never had any problem including a link with my posts using the "http://" button; does this not work for you?

    The button works fine, but after I hit 'submit', I get a screen saying that URLs are not allowed.

    BTW - this is the mail that the BBC sent me:


    A total non-answer, but better than the "It's your player, not the disc" that the Beeb was handing out a week after release.

    I had the same problem but thought it was the old JVC XV-SA75 I was playing it on. I'll have to try it on the Philips 727.

    It has happened on my JVC on at least the first two, and if I remember right the third disk as well (I haven't gotten to the fourth yet...)
    A brief moment on the FF button got me through it each time.
    Annoying, but worth it to watch these again!
