Poorly-Placed Layer Changes In Annie Oakley & SNL 25th Anniv?
 
This message is directed to anyone who owns either VCI's "Annie Oakley TV Collection" 2-Disc Set (#8261) or LionsGate's "Saturday Night Live: 25th Anniversary" DVD (the 2004 release with the cover seen here: amazon.com/dp/B00014K5CI). I'm trying to figure out if my DVDs contain defects or just poorly-placed layer changes.

* Annie Oakley - On Disc 2, episode "Annie Trusts A Convict", at 14:44 the picture freezes for a second in the middle of a scene, before it resumes playing.

* Saturday Night Live - At 88:58, right when the scene turns from black and white to color, the picture freezes for a second before it resumes playing. (A layer change would have been better placed a few minutes later in the black space between the skit and Jimmy Fallon's intro - where the two-tape VHS set splits.)

My guts tells me that these are both layer changes, but it would be nice to get confirmation from others who also own the DVDs in question.

I don't have either of those dvds but they sound like layer changes to me.

I never understood this... can whoever is authoring the DVD place the layer change wherever they want?

'Cause I've seen some really bad placed layer changes... Of course, none come to mind right this second. But I know I've seen them and went "Eww."
