I have, mine doesn't glow red either. No other problems, though when I put a dvd in (2 different ones) to test it, the speakers aren't up to much. Got them on full volume. Thinking of buying some Creative SBS 250's or 270's.
to unpacking it. if i put it on a rug it makes rattling noises but on a table its perfectly quite. im really impressed with everything except speakers so ill go to pcw tommorow (i'll risk pcw its only 20-30 pounds)its a little heavy but i think its pretty good value
