Sorry, what's the X20 series? And would you agree that my problem is player related? Any recommendations aside from buying another player? This player was so highly reviewed...

Read problems usually mean it's time to clean the hub. That's to be expected when a player is a couple of years old.

I'm glad to inform you all that I have sold my BDT220.
I bought a Sony so now I can finally play and stream video without freezers.

Occasionally I can watch that segment in the slowest FF mode (sound still on, double speed).
Last time it happened I got a replacement BR disc that did the same thing at the same spot. Ordered a DVD of the movie that worked. The Netflix folks said I might have to update the firmware, but I have the latest version. Any thoughts? No one posted an answer to the OP's post. This is REALLY annoying. Thanks.
Netflix Blu-ray discs almost always skip/freeze on my BDT-500 which gets light use and is only 13 months old. Discs look new and play fine on my old BD85. I am ready to throw this thing into the junk pile next to my BD87. Time to try a Sony?

Actually, I did the same (discarded, not sold). Netflix discs now are playing on the Sony with no problems. I was in denial too long

I got the BDPS 5200. Price was right, and it does everything I need it to do.

I bought a Sony 5200 about 6 months ago just to get NF 3D streaming and it would constantly lock up. Had to unplug it & start all over, both with streaming & BRs. Sent it back for a refund. I've got a Panny 210 and a Panny 220 and have never had a problem. Goes to show you they all make lemons.......

My X20 is my most solid BD player. I have an Oppo S790 and S7200, also. For app streaming, Sony is my favorite. For DLNA, Oppo is my favorite.
