    I got the SD-2710 a couple of weeks ago and on about a third of the films I watch the player hiccups... It pauses for a second then continues, and this doesn't happen at the layer change. I back up and can't repeat the problem. Anybody else have this experience with Toshibas. I'm used to Pioneer DVD players. Over 700 films and never had a problem with my 525 or 343... I finally got a Hi-Def so I wanted take advantage of the Toshiba's stronger picture quality in my opinion. Do I just have a defective or is this inherent with Toshibas?

    It's defective. What you have described is not normal behaviour. Exchange it.
    Also, why did you get a 2710 for a hi-def display? It's not progressive scan. It's just like a normal DVD player.

    I have a DVDO line doubler between my receiver and the TV's RGB input. I can't turn VSM on the component inputs (Hitachi! Arrgh!) But there is no VSM on the two RGB inputs. I got the set so damn cheap. Also, I plan on buying a couple of Kenwood 400 disc changers once I see some reviews. So the 2710 is kinda temp.
