I need some feedback on my BDP-S570. As long as I've owned this player, i've had no problems with it. In fact, since the last firmware update that fixed BDLive issues, the player has been flawless. The issue I've been experiencing in the last few months at random times is when i play video from a usb device it will cause a random issue that will cause video to freeze at random times while audio plays normally. The pause is usually a second or two, and it carries over to discs, until i shut the power off and remove the usb device. The issue seems to stem from usb playback only, e.g. it doesn't come up when playing a disc by itself. Any feedback would be appreciated. I hadn't experienced this until after applying the last firmware update. I have switched HDMI cables/ports, and even put it on a different tv. This seem to be player specific, not connection/tv issues.
One more question, how do i get this player to play divx/xvid files? the manual says the formats are supported, and i have divx/xvid files i created for the panasonic player which will play these, so i know they are valid files as they play without problems.
