I've had this player for about 2 weeks now. On the face of it it looked to be a great bargain. The player is made by Matsushita for RCA and for all intents and purposes is a A-310. I got it for a very low price and when I hooked it up the picture quality was extremely satisfying, as was the audio. Also, this is one of the few DVD players with built in Dolby Digital decoding that have a decent decoder with extensive bass management built in.
So why have I not given it a 9 or 8? It has a huge flaw. On certain dual layer discs, like Blues Brothers, Mask of Zorro and others, when it switches to the second layer, it jumps or skips ahead a chapter. Say you are in the middle of Chapter 13 and the player switches layers, it will skip over the remaining part of Chapter 13 and start playing Chapter 14.
I read somewhere on the Internet that this is a known issue at Panasonic but they don't want to fix it, instead implementing the fix in the upcoming generation of it's DVD players. But this is hearsay, since I haven't had a chance to talk to anybody at RCA yet.
Apart from this 'minor' flaw, it is one of the better players out there.
If anybody else has experienced this problem or knows if there is a fix for it please email me at Rajdawar@yahoo.com
Happy Viewing,
