Exactly. I bought mine in 2009.

I did consider that for a second or two, but it just doesn't feel right. The player is nice. It works with all other titles I've got (as far as I know). And I'm almost sure it's not a hardware problem, but a software problem. What I'm considering more seriously is to buy a USB BD recorder, that would serve multiple purposes, including (hopefully) watching this particular title.
For the record, when I said 'lemon', I was referring to the disc, not the player.
Next step, I think, will be to take the player out of the cabinet, remove the cover, and clean it up.
Thank you all for the suggestions.
