    My home DVD player is having serious issues (it's had the same ones since new).

    it only plays about half of the DVD's i have correctly. The other half it will play and then the picture with fade dark and get lines across the screen and then the picture will be normal but it will go weird in about another 30 seconds so in effect I never know which discs will work and which will be all crazy.

    It's a sony dvd player, has anybody experienced this and how was it resolved.

    Also since it's driving me crazy suggest some new dvd players you like or ones to avoid?

    I use my Xbox. Got a remote kit off Ebay for $10.00 it plays every thing. I'd also check out the one pimping on http://www.divx.com/hardware/
    Plays divx movies too. Hmmm, that could come in handy.

    you don't have it run thru your VCR do you? If so it's the Macrovision copy protection.
