You may be seeing the results of what the laser has to do about midway through a movie, and that is the laser coming to the end of a disc, then re-focusing onto the second layer of the disc which takes a second, in order to "backtrack" the disc and complete the show. Normal on all sets, and is the nature of the beast. Some higher end players don't do this as obviously due to larger "buffer" memory to help "smooth" over any delays in pix and sound...accordianman

    Okay, then. You therefore, are having a problem with either dirt or the laser assembly needs an alignment tweak...accordianman

DVR making bad DVDs


Three suggestions:
1) take it apart and clean the laser and the spindle 'hub' that the DVD rests on
OR
2) get a 'cleaner' disk that will 'whisk' any dust from the laser diode.
OR as a final suggestion
3) replace the DVD recorder with another. Plain old EIDE parallel interface units fit fine.
This is a very friendly machine in that it will accept PC compatible hard disks and DVDR drives.

"freezes" halfway through dvd


sounds like theres an obstuction with the slider rail. This is the small metal bar that the laser assy rides on. Also check the drive system. It could be a gear to gear system or a belt to gear system. There could be also a cable blocking the laser from tracking. This is a hard call without seeing the unit But you have to remeber to unplug the unit before taking odff the top. Good Luck
