Thanks. I tried playing my FOTR this evening and found I got a freezeup with the first disk. My persistent storage was empty and my firmware up to date. I always reset to factory defaults when installing new firmware. I tried re-emptying my storage with no effect. Power cycling had no effect. Since it was the first BD of the day there was no other WB title in the machine prior to the lockup.
Then I reset to factory defaults again and was able to successfully play both disks without further issues.
I can buy the idea of having to purge persistant storage on occasion although it might be nice for the firmware to trap whatever errors are occurring instead. Periodically resetting to factory defaults though?? Having to reset between two titles from the same studio???
I have had this firmware in my machine since it was released in March without issues except with the True Grit DVD which I could not get to play at all.
I think there is something fishy here with the LOTR EE BDs. True Grit is still waiting for a fix.
