Does your "13 Days" DVD do THIS?

    In the Infinifilm link at about 53:00, the one to "the Soviet response to Kennedy's speech", there is an interview clip with Sergei Khrushchev (Nikita Khrushchev's son). And with my disk, the clip ends with him in mid-sentence while the screen freezes in a course pixelized image. Does this happen with yours as well, or is this a defect in my disk?

    Player model?
    P.S: I don't own this film.

    I was experiencing this on a very basic player, a Toshiba SD 1200.

    Gary,
    I have this film and haven't opened it yet. If you can give me a chapter, I can look at it when I get home tonight.

    Adrian, sorry it's taken me so long to respond; I've been having troubles getting onto the forum. In answer to your question, it happens in chapter 15. In fact, when you use the Infinifilm scene selector, it is the first link in the chapter. Thanks!
    - Gary

    I am not having problems at that point, but I am having problems during the multi-angle extras sequence. It skips around between the 5 angles and jidders and repeats as if on an a-b loop. My rental behaved the same way as my purchase copy.
    I have a Tosh SD-1008 with the latest firmware. I am starting to beleive that this DVD player will never have the right firmware to play all my movies well and am going to stop recommending Toshiba players. I personally sold about a dozen Tosh players in the last 3 years. :|
    I am getting bad audio droputs on DD titles, about 2 per movie. The firmware was supposed to address that.
    Sony next timem perhaps?

    I don't know jack squat about hardware, but I know enough not to get Toshiba. From what I've heard and from my friend's Toshiba DVD player, Toshiba isn't the player to get. By the way, is there a "bad" layer change sometime during the reading of the letter or something? I'm not being exact, but there was a part in the movie where the screen freezed, but then it went on.
