In case some of you may not know, Fox has implemented a new version of their BD+ copy protection since their previous version was cracked. As a result, playback compatibility was broken on many Blu-ray players. I thought I'd make a list of the movies with the new BD+ as well as any players that will or will not play them using the latest firmware.
The following titles with the new BD+:
1. Futurama: Bender's Game (U.S.)
2. Firefly, The Complete Series (U.S.)
3. Planet of the Apes (1968 ) (U.S.)
4. Predator 2 (1990)
5. Shine a Light (U.K)
6. Planet of the Apes (most of the series), U.S.
7. Space Chimps, USA
8. Meet Dave, USA
9. X-Files 2
10. X-Files 1
11. Home Alone
12. The Day The Earth Stood Still: Special Edition
13. Jingle All The Way
14. Super Troopers
15. Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story
16. Horton hears a Who (US version only)
17. French Connection I & II UK BD
18. In the Name of the King (US)
19. Vanishing Point, Germany
20. Babylon A.D.
And any Fox title released from now on.

Reply to this thread if these titles work, or don't work in your player and I'll update the list. I think that if one plays they should all play.
