The display shows the play triangle, and all zeros in time/track. The disk will play fine in another BR player that I have.
I reset teh player to factory specs and even cleared the temporary cache. Nothing works...this disk won't play here.
Anyone else having an issue with this? Is there a work around?
I've seen some recent reports of problems with this disc on other players. At this point it's not clear, but the studio may have issued this title in several variants (rental vs. retail for example), with some variant having a problem. If you email Oppo with details on this, please do be sure to include the ISBN or bar-code number from the packaging so they can check for that. Unfortunately this problem (variant discs with sloppy studio QA) happens far more frequently than most folks realize.
It is also possible that you just have a defective disc. With Blu-ray, there are types of manufacturing defects which are not easily visible to the naked eye.
