Blu-ray continues to baffle me.
I watched Iron Man 2, a rental from Netflix, yesterday afternoon on my 390 with the old firmware 808531
and with the exception of a split-second, non-repeatable audio hiccup in the first few minutes, everything played through cleanly without a single freeze.
Last night, I let the player update to the new 808539
firmware (took a pretty long time to download) and watched Iron Man 2 again today. The movie played cleanly from start to finish with no issues at all. As for streaming, I don't have Vudu but Netflix had no issues whatsoever, watched one full movie and parts of another. Didn't have to do a reset or deactivate Netflix.
My setup is the 390 bitstreaming (Primary Pass-Thru) to my Denon AVR-2310. My AVR-2310 also has the most current firmware. As I said at the start of my post, baffling why I had no real issues with Iron Man with the older firmware. Equally baffling is why some people had problems with Netflix after updating to the new firmware, while others did not.Edit
: Just remembered one significant difference in loading Iron Man with the 2 different firmware versions. With 808531
, the "Stark Expo" loading icon popped on the screen twice. With 808539
, the icon came on just once and overall, seemed to load the disk faster.
