I have the original version no up dates as of yet, through component with analog for audio. Tried twice with Van Helsing because I love this movie, but had to exchange it to hard to watch. I am on my second try with Tomb Raider because I love this movie also, but I think its going back as well because it freezes up the player shortly after the UPS delivery seen, and I have to reboot the player every time. I have tried every thing skip, pause and starting from a new chapter after this seen but the player just freezes up, this has almost got me to the point of trying to down load a new firmware version. I am still afraid to update because of new problems with 1.4, hopefully they will come up with a good version with out any glitches. When they finally do come up with a good one I will have my kid burn it on a dvd and I will update then. Most of my Netflix rentals do pretty well with very few drop outs or stutters in the picture, not surprising those are the ones I would never buy, just my luck. I really look forward to the new gen players with out computer chips because the picture is flawless when its able to play consistently through a movie. By the way my collection consists of CoR,PitchBlack,The Last Samuri,Good Fellos, Born Supremecy,Serenty,TrainingDay,and Doom. Only had a little bit of trouble with Pitch Black, the rest are perfect?
