In perfect darkness, I can sometimes see the faint red glow of the laser through the disc tray's outline while watching a movie.  I noticed it the other night when I was sitting in the sweet spot in my ht, I was sitting in my home theatre recliner with my legs folded under me. It is only when I sit in that spot with my legs folded under me that this event manifests.
The Oppo people said that from certain angles this is certainly possible. Has this been observed by anyone else?

Yes, I'm pretty sure I've seen the glow from the laser on my DV981HD. It makes the player look a bit Tron-y.

Thanks. It's good to know it's not broken and I am still sane.

Has anyone else noticed this, or is it only us?

I actually don't think its the lazer, I think its some kind of internal lighting thing.
