When I try to watch SOME movies on my Samsung TV from Netflix thro my Sony BD, HDMI connected to my TV, I get the error message MODE NOT SUPPOTED. I have tried changing from 4.3 to 16.9 with no luck. The strange thing is that some movies play with no problem . I am trying to watch "The Crown"

If they don't sort it out, start returning defective gear.

could be referring to resolution it wants to use, or the refresh rate expected. Typically a TV will want 60Hz refresh rate, and that's the most likely problem you have. So check those video settings you are sending to the TV.
