I recently purchased the Panasonic DVD-RV30 from the advice of this forum. I am basically happy with this model however I just got done watching the Alien and Aliens DVD movies and I received a few one-second blips (similar to a scrambled TV channel) during the high action gun fighting scenes specifically in the Aliens movie. I haven't tried out the Toshiba SD-1600 model yet but I heard that model is good as well. I have yet to try the Pioneer or the Sony model. I guess a higher end model would do the trick as well I guess. Any ideas???

I have the same player I believe the pause in Aliens is due to a layer change. I have the legacy set and that's the only noticeable pause I have on any of my dvd's

I never had any pauses within the movie just one second blips on the screen. You are receiving the split second blips on the screen or the pauses?

Where do you house your player??? Could be your player getting too hot if it is inside a cabinet with a receiver etc.... Just a thought!!!

I just get a very minor pause in Aliens, no blips. Every other DVD I own runs flawless

Are you running s-video through a switcher or receiver by any chance? I've heard of a few cases where big action scenes will look flaky under these circumstances. Kenwood receivers and even the Sima s-video switcher are known to have this problem.

Sounds like a layer change

It sounds like a layer change.
Try to find out where the layer change occurs for that disc.
I believe The Digital Bits http://www.thedigitalbits.com in their reviews also list where the layer change occurs.
Try looking at their review for Aliens to see where the layer change occurs and whether it coincides with where the momentarily pause takes place.
