    I have an RV30 and an RV80, and I just ordered Fifth element, which I'm VERY pumped about. I've heard that superbit doesn't work right with certain DVD players. So panny owners, am I in the clear?
    Thanks

    The only aspect of Superbits DVD that might be a potential problem is the authoring for a seamless layer transition. This falls outside of the DVD spec and there may be a few early model players that will have a problem with the layer change. I certainly would not expect a problem from a RV30 or RV80.

    Thanks for the fast replies boys! I figured the Panny DVDPs wouldn't have a prob. In fact, I stand by Panasonic DVD players for handling all discs with astuteness.
