Trying to do some research here on lockups, and from what I was reading the lockups should have been resolved with the 2.0 firmware. Whats strange is BEFORE the 2.0 (with 1.4) I had ZERO lockups, now I tend to have at least one per HD DVD disk (SD disks are fine)

Anyone else have an increased number of lockups after 2.0?

I watched Tokyo Drift last night and had 2 lockups, forcing long reboots, right when the movie is getting good.
Im on Ver 1.4
It could have been the disk. It was a rental from Netflix and was pretty sratched.
I have had lockups on brand new disk as well.
I will not be upgrading to 2.0 any time soon

I just got my A1 last week. It came preloaded with 2.0. I have watched 3 new movies (Aeon Flux, Corpse Bride, Bourne Supremacy) with no lockups. I have tried only one standard DVD so far - Pleasantville. I tried it first with 1080i resolution and the player locked at startup. After clearing it and switching to 480p the disc played fine. I was able to switch it to 1080i after starting and it continued OK. Have not tried that disc again to see if lockup repeats.

I get quick audio drop-outs once in a while, I'm running v2.0, when I had v1.3 I never had a single problem. Maybe the next update will correct this.

So, lockups and freezes are nothing new. For me, most HD-DVD disks have at least a momentary pause or 5. Over half lock up the player requiring power cycle. From what I am reading, this doesn't seem typical. Has anyone had errors at this level and done anything to fix it? Has sending the unit in for repair fixed it? SD DVDs are flawless.

October Manufacture
FW 2.0
HDMI connection
Mostly Netflix
