BD player updates are legendary and issues with some titles make me wonder if they can ever get it right. In fact, what is going on here to require an internet connection for some titles.
What happened to "just press play"?
Bought my 1st blu ray player in late Nov. and have used it a bit since then, maybe 10-15 times total, with some blu ray movies, the rest, standard dvd's, with NO freezeups until Sat. I was about 1 1/2 hours into "Total Recall" when it froze. I couldn't do anything, buttons did not respond, so after starting and restarting the movie 3 times, and then trying to watch, again, it froze, and I just gave up at that point.
I have had no freezeups until this point. I then went to LG's website, and they suggested the dvd blu ray may be dirty, or scratched, so I did check the movie, and it looked like there may have been something on it, and it may have had a scratch, possibly. Like I said, I gave up at this point. I have been researching this issue all weekend. Sounds like this is pretty common with blu ray players. I do have another blu ray movie I will be watching later this week, will see how it goes I guess.
I take it these are very sensitive machines.....
