It's really the strangest thing. I have a Sony DVD player that is probably approaching 3 years old. I know it's time to probably just retire it, but the strangest thing is that it plays movies just fine. But if I try to watch special features, it skips around, and gives funny video output. It was doing it on Wizard of Oz the other day. So when I got Star Wars today, I watched completely through Episode IV without a bit of problem. Then I put in the "making of episode III" featurette, and it started jumping around occasionally. Not all of teh time, but occasionally. Do they encode the special features differently than movies?? And it's not all special features either, I can watch through nearly all of my Superman and LOTR special features just fine, but others like Wizard of Oz, Star Wars, and Harry Potter give me lots of trouble. Yet, the movies Wizard of Oz, Star WArs, and Harry Potter play fine.
