greensnakes: #memorex_mvbd_2520 Had a problem with skipping when playing dvd's but found the problem and now no skipping! I wen't into the blueray players setup under video and found that the video was set to 480p and changed it to 1080i which is what the lcd was set at. Now no skipping at all. Works perfect! Feb 14, 10
