Strange how the system would go from stable to unstable in a weeks time with no changes in the s/w.
the bsods started to happen the other day. i restored my system after talking to a tech. not sure if it helped but I haven't seen one since then. I tried restoring the system again today as I wanted to revert back to factory installed stuff after trying to install 9.12 drivers. that option no longer works so they are going to replace the drive considering that
as for the bluray drive - some movies work some don't. like you said, it more than likely is firmware related but considering it is effecting the two movies I just purchased along with the fact that the only purpose of this pc is to play movies, I'm not willing to wait till it gets addressed. the last firmware update for the drive is from August.
I just looked up support history online and I see they are going to send me a different drive - the one actually listed on my service page. It will be the HLDS drive this time and I hope it works out in the end
Stuff I installed...
TotalMedia - to see if it was an issue PowerDVD
Tried 9.11 and 9.12. I messed up some stuff with trying to get 9.11 to uninstall so had to restore. 9.12 went fine but I lost the option for 1366x728 and I didn't want to install something like powerstrip to get that resolution.
BD Advisor - realized that the video card isn't good enough for Picture in Picture but not that important to me
Logitech Setpoint for my Dinovo Mini
Teamviewer to remote in
Then just windows updates.
If I could restore, I would check to see if a fresh install would help with the above. Perhaps when I get home I may do a fresh install using the disc that came with the system
