I just needed to set the clock?

I noticed my clock was not set correctly (probably after my last major power outage). It still thought it was 2008 :). So, I set the correct date and, hey, no more warning message!

Yes. :) I corrected my previous post.

However, I noticed the "known bugs" were eliminated from the release notes after the March 2011 update. But, I get the feeling they still exist. Am I right?

It looks every bit as good , if not better. One of the few Universal titles that wasn't mucked up with the release on BD. Helps that it wasn't a catalog title.
