I hope this isn't a totally dead thread because I need an opinion on whether something is wrong with our BDP-BX58.....
Every so often we get a lockup condition in the middle of a streaming video. In other respects the player works fine, and most of the many streaming videos play well and without incident. However though it's infrequent, when this lockup happens the video stops and the screen reverts to the built-in Sony blue screen, the one with the light colored horizontal streak of light in the center. When this has occurred, I've watched it for several minutes and nothing happens. Eventually I assume it's fully locked up, and so do a reboot of sorts via holding down the the power on/off switch.
My first guess was that we're seeing a network disruption of some kind and that the player doesn't handle these well. However isn't this unlikely? Wouldn't Sony design the thing to take into account such a presumably common occurrence?
Another alternative is that the internet connection is wireless and relatively slow (display shows 2.8 MB/s), so maybe this is causing buffering errors. But again, wouldn't this be a problem for many users and something Sony would have accounted for?
Can anyone offer an opinion on this problem?
