Plays regular DVD's fine, but it either chokes up trying to load or says the blu-ray isn't playable. It's done this for all the disks I've tried. Reflashing and resetting to factory default didn't help.
I'd like to try to downlevel it to 2.7, but I can't find the files anywhere. Does anyone know where I can get them from?? All the links I've found on a Google search are dead.
As luck would have it, I have a few older versions of the firmware and the 2.7 version is one of them. I can't tell you whether or not you'll be successful in downgrading, FW usually isn't capable of that, but maybe so in this case.
Anyway, if you can figure out a way where I can get it to you (Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.), I'll be glad to, just PM me...
