Hi. I posted on the main thread for the bd-up5000 a problem I experienced with the new fw 1.4 so here again for this new thread 1.4 ----------------
1) good news first: For Your Eyes Only = fixed 100% (for me at least).
2) a bug with the 5 Paramount titles of Jul 29th (Top Gun...etc):
1st of all, it doesn't freeze anymore. On the other hand, when I access the extras, special features of each movies, the extra itself plays fine but, if I hit popup menu or next chapter when that extra plays, I get a green screen for 2sec. then I get the menu okay. If I then hit 'Play' (play the movie), I get another green screen (2sec) followed by the movie but its zoomed in and quite big too (can't be watched like that). You need to press stop (5sec delay on stop, by the way) then press play to get the menu back and if you then press play (the movie), playback is normal. Anyone duplicated this problem?
I have a Sony Wega 720p/1080i TV connected to the bd-up5000 via a DVI Monster cable with an HDMI/DVI Monster adapter. Could it be the HDCP handshake doing this? I have not seen this happening on any of my BD's or HD DVD's before.
About the update its great but I was hoping for a bigger update fixing a lot more bugs (like bonusview popup, 16:9 only on standard DVD's, etc). There are a lot more bugs as we can read on these forums...
