Hi, I could not find a thread for this player that is recent and covers disc read issues. I have installed new Lasers and Sled for XA777es. At start up it was jumpy and basically would not play any format. After going through a couple hours of trying to calibrate with CD's, Single Layer and Hybrids I have it consistently reading and playing CD's/redbook and Single layer SACD's. My problem is with getting it to recognize Hybrid discs and not play them as a standard CD. If anyone has any experience with this series of players and ideas or fix I would greatly appreciate their assistance or advice. I would also love to find calibration discs that are not 1 million $ each as I realize duplication does not work.
