David, not trying to flame you or anything, but just wanted to ask you where did you get the impression that "many of us" have the lock-up problem with PS3? As far as I know "many of us" are happily watching BD and other discs with no lockups.
Anyway, I have the latest firmware and my 60GB PS3 has never locked up neither during BD playback nor any time after that. My PS3 is placed horizontally. Perhaps, the firmware upgrade did not go through correctly in your case, or maybe you are having a bad unit. Also check the disk itself: is it clean? Does it have scratches?
I am willing to try to replicate the issue on my PS3. Can you mention specifics:
- what BD discs were you watching when the lockup happened?
- did yuo press any buttons that triggered the lockup or did it happen completely "unprovoked"?
- and most importantly, can you yourself replicate the lockups (same BD or different BDs)?
