A few weeks ago a purchased the Sony DVP-NC555ES and I am noticing some problems on it. The problems are: subtitles popping up out of nowhere in some movies movies, a very distracting color flicker in some movies, some kind of flicker in movies that seems to that it is fighting with my 36 inch Sony HDTV's line doubler, and a noticeable layer change. I emailed Sony about these problems and they said the dvd player needs to go into service. I am not taking it into service and I called Crutchfield about exchanging the DVP-NC555ES for the Denon DVD-2200. I hope the Denon DVD-2200 is a better player than the Sony.
