Couldnt pass up Best Buy and the $299 A2, however, i have a problem. Hook up went fine, but the player freezes up on the 1 and only HD DVD i have. Under Seige sucks on regular DVD so i wanted to try it on HD. If only it played for more than 20 minutes without locking up and freeze framing id be happy. The only way to get the disc out was to unplug, plug back, and then eject. The disc looks OK, no dirt or scratches. It has locked up 3 times, in 3 different places. Is it the disc or the player? So far regular DVDs play fine, are they not as prone to freeze ups?
