    On the first disc at around the 87 minute mark there is a very bad dropout on my copy of this DVD the picture freezes and the sound drops out altogether for a couple of seconds.I found this very distracting, did anyone notice this on their copy???

    Haven't watched it yet, but it sounds like a classic layer change to me.

    Nope its not the layer change because its about 5 mins before the dropout occurs...And I know the difference between a layer change and a dropout,my copy is clearly faulty.tried it on 3 different players a pioneer and a Toshiba and the dvd player on my PC...

    I don't remember exactly when but I did have part of the
    video freeze for about 3 secs. It was a 4 inch line running
    horizontally across my 61 inch screen. I didn't experience
    any audio drop outs when this was happening. Since the rest
    of the dvd played fine I just chalked it up to possible dust
    or slight disc error.

    Hi,
    finally got my DVD today and I checked the 87 minute mark. I didn't experience any audio dropouts or video freeze with PowerDVD 4.0 or on the Samsung 807 (haven't tried it on my main player yet). However I did experience a slight video glitch at 87:35 which only lasted for about 1 frame.
    I made a screen cap of it:

    Is this the shot you mean?

    Hey,

    yup, it really is a weird one, I wonder what went wrong. Luckily I have no audio dropout or anything on any of my players, just this weird defect for a frame. I doubt they'll fix it to be honest.
