Waltons Season 4 TROUBLE...

I've nearly completed watching the new Season 4 and on disc 4, episode The Big Brother, the video pixelates between minutes 3 and 4. Anyone else have this trouble? I don't know if I should replace the whole set (store exchange) or try to contact Warner Bros. for a replacement disc.

Any help or just plain ideas would be appreciated.

you should try and exchange it and if the second copy doesn't work contact WB and ask for a replacement disc.
alot of the times its just a Bad disk from that shipment.
and i know its annoying but watch the whole thing all over again to see if it works cause say 2 years from now you want to watch it again and its fucked up then your screwed.

Thanks for the advice. It's frustrating to find that DVD isn't "perfected" by this time. During nearly twenty years of purchases, I don't think I've had more than a couple (two to be exact) CDs that were defective.

Do you have more than one player? Sometimes I find one of my DVD players more fickle than my much older Pioneer LD/combo unit. Surprisingly most discs that may break up or freeze on other machines work fine when I switch to that device.

That's one thing I don't like about box sets. So many discs in one package to have to worry about.

indiephantom,

I do have two players and a DVD drive in my PC. The disc pixelated consistently regardless of player. :-(

You make a great point about entire series sets. I don't think I'll *ever* go that route!

BTW, I hope someone asks about these defective discs during the HTF chat with Warner Brothers.
