You might check to see if you have the latest firmware update and also check to see that your disc isn't dirty.

Does it freeze on ANY movie, or just one ? Clean the disc first, even if it's a brand new one. HD and blu ray players ares more sensitive. If you just bought it, I'm sure you'll need to get the latest firmware. If after the firmware update and cleaning do not help, exchange it for another. I've had my A2 for 4 months or so, and not a single problem. Good luck.

Man, I've heard these stories, but I've never had it happen on mine. (Knock on Wood). Anyway, definitely make sure your player is updated to version 2.2.

Definitely upgrade the Firmware or Hold Down the Power or Unplug it. If this continues Exchange it.

I personally don't wipe down my HD DVD's, I use Dust-Off (Compressed) and if that doesn't solve it again Exchange it.

I only had two issues when I had the HD-A1 and completely flawless with the HD-XA2. *knock-on-wood* I haven't upgraded the Firmware either.

I never did liked the HD-A2, prefered HD-A20...tried both out since stores up here didn't have the HD-XA2 available and I read too many people having issues. I would step up/pay a bit more for the HD-A20.

It freezes on any movie. But the weird part is it freezes up when a movie almost is over.

If you've tried all of these suggestions and it still freezes up, then I'd say you have a falty machine and I'd suggest returning it.

A thought came to mind when you said " it freezes up when the movie is almost over". Is the player in a well ventalated area ? Not in an enclosed rack system ? And definatly not sitting on top of something that gives off lots of heat, like your AV reciever.Have clearance of at least2-3 inches around all sides ? If not, then maybe heat build up is causing the player to freeze up. Try moving the player to another location and see if that helps.
