    When watching Alien (directors cut) in dts, the picture keeps freezing. Does anyone els have this problem.
    When i play the same disk on my sony dvd there is no problems. Also, the dolby digital track works fine.
    Is this a software problem or player problem.

    I think I remember reading that Denon is aware of that problem and are offering frimware upgrade to correct it. Check their website.

    I noticed it also on Kill Bill DTS, though it does not freeze, it just hiccupped. Pretty sure it was the same thing. I have not gotten the update yet.

    The upgrade will fix your Alien DTS problem. When you notify Denon that you want the firmware upgrade they'll send you a CD. The upgrade is super easy to do and takes about a minute. The instructions they sent were very clear and everything went exactly as the instructions said.

    I faxed in the form, got the update via e-mail within hours. Installed the update on Monday, and the bugs seem to be gone. I found it interesting that they actually mentioned specifically the Diana Krall DTS and Alien Quradrillogy DTS issues.

    Faxed my request (2900) in early Monday and rec'd the disk via FedEx on Wednesday. Firmware update worked like a charm. I can now hear Diana in DTS! Thanks Denon!

    I requested the files be sent to me via e-mail. If you have a PC with a CD burner, this is the way to go. That sucks that it didn't work.
