My wife finally lost patience after the firmware upgrade. A player that doesn't play a movie disc is useless to me. wow...i have been fortunate never to have a problem before like that. i own an oppo and use it as a transport into my Zanden. Did a google and found others with the same problem. BTW, my first generation Sony DVD player had even more serious problems.I lost patience in Blu-ray DRM and the MPAA after that. I never had these problems with DVD, VHS or Betamax. yikes...sounds like you managed to get the movie playing thru the sony. I put a movie in it and it would constantly reboot.The unit is small and lightweight and I’m happy with it overall, but there are a few tweaks I’d like to see done to it.The Panasonic DMP-BD655 is a refurbished product so it comes in a plain brown box but it’s packaged well.The player is rather small, at least in compared to my other one which was a Sony BDP-S301.
At his day job in the aerospace industry, he is never too far away from the latest FWC related news thanks to Google Reader on the i Phone. If you don’t live near a Costco, you can pick the Sony BDP-S350 for 4.99 from Amazon right now.
Whether it is for Microsoft Windows or Mac OSX or Linux, such SONY BDP-S301 Firmware 5.30 Win98SE/ME/2000/XP/Vista is necessary to ensure a general normal operation.
Any error popping-up on your computer or phone prompts you the driver is abnormally working and the related driver issue should be resolved as quick as possible.
Their new Blu-ray player has just landed at our local Costco (Seattle Area), and is badged as the Sony BDP-BX1 Blu-ray Player.
It’s about time I upgraded my Blu-Ray player I think, and has come through for me by sending a very nice Panasonic unit for review.
