I've been having issues with newer Blu Ray discs in my Panasonic BD35. First and foremost the player still plays my BD discs, DVD and CD's without a problem.
However, 3 of the last 4 netflix movies have had issues playing. You put the disc in, it gets through a preview and then just basically stops. It's like it goes to load up the next scene/preview etc and it just doesn't load. This happened on "Rock of Ages" (terrible movie), another that I can't remember the name of, and most recently Taken 2 last night. A google search revealed both of those movies have issues on numerous types of players so I doubt it's the player.
I noticed in all three cases, I could NOT skip previews, it was like it couldn't see the track table. I could fast forward, fast forwarding always resulted in the player locking up. Additionally, I have to power off the unit several times and eventually it just works. Again, this doesn't happen on every title, but seems to be more prevalent on the newer titles. I'm wondering if it has something to do with BD live content getting corrupted?
Any thoughts or tips would be appreciated.
Edit: I should probably clarify, these netflix discs have looked brand new, no visible scratching or anything.
