??? Replace with what? These players haven't been available for years now.

In that case, you probably should consider getting a current model. Sony, Panasonic and Oppo are the brands favored here on AVS. Pioneer and Sharp tend to have relatively limited functionality in comparison.

If I remember correctly, the newer Pioneers BD players are actually manufactured by Sharp.

ISF Calibrator
Samsung PN64F8500
Pioneer Kuro Elite Pro-111FD
Pioneer Kuro BDP-320
Displays are like 100% cotton t-shirts. Always buy a size larger than you think you'll need, as they tend to shrink over time.

My Pioneer 120 certainly was. The only difference is the manufacturer's logo. However, my understanding is that the very latest generation of Pioneer's players were back to being their own. I dunno what'll happen with their next generation now that Pioneer's entertainment division is owned by Onkyo.

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.

Update... I decided to try other discs (quite boring to wait for each one to load), and after about 20 tries, I found two other ones that won't play (Seven and Natural Born Killers, which I have watched not so long ago, but in 3.73, I believe). Now I do think it's a hardware issue... I'll try to open the unit and clean it up later today, if I have time.

Interesting, though, is that the Labyrinth + Enemy Of The State phenomenon persists. I reproduced it twice.

Anyway, I just posted this to be fair with you guys that told me it looked like a hardware issue.

Thank you all,

VMat

I just tried Enemy of the State and Se7en in my 320 and both titles played fine. I am on 3.74 and I erased persistent storage before I tried each movie. I do have BD Live enabled. I do not have Natural Born Killers or Labyrinth.
