Why is video display choppy on parts of Blu-Ray DVD?

by AtposViewer / November 20, 2011 12:16 AM PST

Last night, we tried to watch a Blu-Ray DVD ("The Conspirator") on our new Samsung BD5100 Blu-Ray player. The video playblack of the trailers and special features was fine, but the playback of the movie itself was jerky and grainy. (There was no problem with the first Blu-Ray DVD we watched; this was only the second.) Is the source of this problem the player or the DVD? If the former, is it a decoding issue, and is there a firmware update that corrects it? If the latter, is this a common issue with Blu-Ray DVDs?

Does the first play fine still?

There are issues with HD playback all over. The most common issue is high motion video. Folk expected better.

Try this. Try it on PS3 on the same scene.

I don't have the first disc now

I don't have the first Blu-Ray DVD now; it was from Netflix and we returned it. I'll have to see how the next one plays. In the meantime, I've networked the Blu-Ray player and updated its software. I tried the buggy DVD again and the movie playback was still choppy while the other stuff on the disc wasn't.

It was not funny when I

It was not funny when I walked my neighbor through this area. We pulled up the DVD on a PC and stepped through the choppy video FRAME BY FRAME and sure enough it was the source DVD at fault. There's a lot of iffy content out there.

The industry is not about quality today. It appears they'll ship it and only fix it under duress.
