If this post is in the wrong place, my apologies. But I'm having a really weird issue with my player and Sony's techs haven't been very helpful.
I got the player back in January and bought a few BD's to test it out. As far as I could tell, every BD worked flawlessly with the player. However, I got bored this month so I went back to my dvd's and started playing a few of those on this player. Right off the bat I noticed there was a brief pausing issue on U2's Live at the Red Rocks. I checked the disc and it had no blemishes whatosever, so I put it in my dvdrom on my pc and there was no brief pausing on the scene that briefly paused on the blu ray player.
So I called Sony and they had me update the firmware and do the reboot thing, which I did. They then had me reset all of the settings to factor default, which I did. But the issue was still there on that one specific scene. So they told me they'd get the dvd themselves and check it in the lab. In the meantime, I ran a few more of my dvd's, I tried my old Friday the 13th dvd's and they seemed to be fine, I then tried Manhunter and it was fine as well. But tonight I played Shaun of the Dead and I got the very brief pausing again towards the end of the film.
I then put on U2's 360, the dvd version and about half way into that I got the brief pause. It then occured to me that the dvd's with the pausing issue, such as the two U2 ones were dual layer, while I believe the friday the 13th ones may be single layer.
So I'm thinking the player has an issue when switching to the single layer, much like a lot of the really old dvd players had back in the day.
So I re-contacted Sony but the tech thought dual layer dvd's were the same as dual sided, so we had a communicaiton breakdown. He then gave me tier 2's number. But I'm thinking the player is just defective and needs to be rma'd. However, I was hoping someone here could verify if the BDP-N460 just has the pausing issue with dual layer dvd's, or if I really do need to RMA the player.
