    I'm a first time poster. Here it is. I find that towards the very end of a movie it starts to pixalize and then lock-up (not all the time mind you but often lately)
    Now this is being played through a high end Denon 3910 upconverting DVD player (happens in HDMI or Component) going to a Sanyo Z3 projector ( I beleive its upconversion is off). When this happens I take it out and put it into my secondary $49 DVD player and it works just fine, no pictualization or lock-up. Go figure that one out. Of course the qualityof the picture suffers greatly as it goes to 480 from the upconverted 720.
    I record on Sony DRU-800A V: KYOI and a Sony DW-D22A V: BFSI
    I tried to download new drivers but it just wasn't happening for me.
    Any thoughts?

    Your problem is not at all uncommon. Most of the inexpensive DVD Players will play anything you put in them. Older Sony's were notorious for being very selective about the media they will accept and Denon, as well as many other manufactures, use electronic parts from Sony.
