Everything I have said is accurate in every post I have made to date on this topic.
Here are the Facts.
* The WOW disc meets all BD Specifications.
* The disc was tested on Sony players by Testronic Labs.
* The Sony WOW disc works on all Sony BD Players we have tested with.
* The disc works on my Sony PS-3.
* If you are correct in stating it has an issue the BD Java Pixel Flipper, then it is a player issue and it is isolated to your specific model or models in that line.
* You only need to run the Pixel Flipper long enough to correct any burn-in or stuck pixels.
* Typically, one (1) hour ... or two (2) thirty (30) minute sessions in your case with your specific Sony Model ... should do the trick. Running for a few hours or longer will not hurt anything.
* If you run the Pixel Flipper and do not see a change in the stick pixel .... then you very well may have a dead pixel. The Pixel Flipper cannot bring Pixels back from the dead.
* You will find that all BD Java applications that run in memory will do this in your Sony Player model.
* This is a player issue and it is due to Sony's approach / design.
* Testronic Labs is the standard in the industry for BD Player compatibility and disc testing.
* Testronic Labs did a great job considering the fact that this is the only reported instance of any issue with the Pixel Flipper that we have had in over 2 years this disc has been on the market.
* The calibration features of the disc still work fine ... even in your Sony player model.
* You can make any recommendation you want ... I recommend you buy an OPPO.
Hope that info helps to clarify matters for you.

Hard to see an issue if you don't run it just once on a Sony player for the length of time advertised as being effective (1hr - overnight). I don't know why you jump to the conclusion that its the screen saver either, the screensaver was disabled on all 3 models I tested. The sony player has an autostandby feature that stops spinning the disc if it detects no activity.
I agree its not a disc issue, imo its poor development and testing at the least. If tested right, you could at least advertise that you should not buy the product for use on a Sony player.
I stand by my recommendation to not purchase this disc if you use a Sony Player.
I would get your money back from that test company also.
