    This is really disappointing! 15 minutes into the disc...pauses, lipsynch problems, stuttering, pixelations...take out the disc to wipe...problem seems to disappear. However, 25 minutes later, picture pauses, no audio, cannot get player to FF or STOP!

    It seems that the recent update didn't help. Why is the Toshiba so sensitive in playing HD-DVD discs, and yet I never have a problem playing standard discs? Also had a glitch with "The Bourne Supremacy" but nothing major.

    Now, each time I buy a new HD-DVD disc, I wonder if it's going to give me problems. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Have you updated your firmware? If not, that could be your problem. Or maybe you just got a bad player. My copy of FNL played fine.

    Well, I was so desperate to watch this disc (I love watching sports movies) that I ended up wiping it with a Baby Wipe. I allowed the disc to dry, then I wiped out any residue, then wiped it again till it was shining like glass. Popped in the disc again, and it played all the way through! I DO NOT recommend Baby Wipes, but it did work. Btw, another poster told me that this was the first disc that gave him problems also. I think that the Toshiba is so sensitive to HD discs, that any speckle of dirt will cause it to malfunction.

    Anyway, thanks for listening...had to vent.

    Well...
    how's it look when its NOT burping & slurping (insert baby noises)??? ;-)
    The SD DVD had an almost 3D effect with the rain during the game scenes.

    LOL, Ed! I didn't see the standard version of FNL, but now you got me curious of the comparisons. Btw, I was very worried the player was going to spit-up the disc, but it didn't. [​IMG]
