I hooked my new BD-C6900 up last night. Wifey wanted to watch Hot Tub Time Machine so installed it in our bedroom on our LG 37LH40 LCD instead of the new UN55C8000 Samsung. Upgraded the firmware on the BD and fired up the disc.
To my horror, the screen would flash white with an audible crackle from the speakers every few seconds and the playback would seem to skip at that moment too. Tried another disc, Kick Ass, and it did the same thing. Swapped HDMI cables, same thing. Moved it out to the new Samsung 8000 to test and it didn't do it there which was a relief. Finally went through all the options in the menu and once I turned off the 'Deep Color' option, the disc worked fine on the LG using a 6' Monoprice 24g HDMI (high speed).
After disabling the Deep Color, this player is absolutely flawless. The picture is fantastic even on the cheap LG 37LH40.
