I have watched "Harry Brown" and "Repo Men" on Blu-ray. Both discs would freeze momentarily then jump several chapters. It happens in the same spots each time though I haven't tried re-inserting the disc and replaying to see if the time location changes. Both discs appear clean. Just a side note, I did not watch these movies back-to-back; I watch another movie "Beerfest" with no problems.
I have had a LG BD570 for several months and it will freeze during play on certain blu-ray discs. DVDs have not been a problem. For instance, I bought "Shoot 'Em Up" and during the play the screen will freeze in several instances of the movie. The current work-around is to restart the movie and fast-forward through the scene. The latest problem is different. "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" would not load. After all the commercials, the movie will start loading and never stop (the menu is never reached). It plays fine on my PC.
The discs are clean. The player has the latest firmware update. My player issues must not be too widespread since I can't find any similar issues. I can't believe that Blu-ray is so unforgiving to Blu-ray discs.
Does anyone know of similar problems? And, if so, how do I fix it? I sent an email to LG customer service but never received a reply.
