I know this has been covered before, but it really bothers me that you pay several hundred dollars (or more) and the companies can't put a few dollars of memory in there to buffer the change. Plus, apparently, most/all HTPC DVD drives work just fine (which cost ~$50). They do it in diskmans and car cd players, why not use that in DVD players? Are there any new players out besides a couple Denon's that have no layer change pause? Is there a way to tell by looking at the specs on a player. (I'm not really looking to pay $500 for a player anyway) I'd preferably like a 5 disk changer, but might go with a single just to get rid of the skip. I saw one person say, "what's 1 sec. out of a 120 movie?" Well, it really brings me out of the movie as would any easily noticeable artifact or glitch. Of course the longer and more noticeable the pause the worse it bothers me. I've noticed some DVDs try to put it in between scenes or some where less noticeable at least.
