    The reason I ask is I got a Sony DVP-S3000 that I've owned for quite sometime. Personally I've yet to find a good enough reason to replace it. I recently got a PS2 so I can watch DTS title if I want to. Does anybody know if the older Sony's have the bug? I heard the 7000 didn't, and I believe the 3000 had some common parts, but I'm not certain.

    Keith,
    I have a Sony DVD player, but I'm about to buy a new one. What bug are you talking about?

    Do a search for chroma bug and you'll find all sorts of stuff on it. Apparently a number of the Sony's, including the newer ones according to some people, have this bug, along with many other players. As I understand it, it has to do with some error when decoding the colors, and shows up as streaks in bright colors like blue and red. I've never noticed it, and I hear that if you don't know what to look for it isn't obvious, but when you are aware of it it is quite noticeable.

    I see they found it in the PS2, but they didn't check the 3000. If its the same as the 7000, then its good, I guess I'll have to compare the two with Toy Story and see what I find.
