OK, this seems a bit confusing. I swapped the players, and it STILL didn't work on the main system!! My first thought was that some new BD Java security was not compatible with passing through my receiver. I then tried it on the bedroom TV, and it also didn't work. As a test, I removed the thumb drive and Ethernet connection. It worked on the 370!! I then repeated that on the 380, and it worked! I then re-tried the drives and Ethernet, and it still seems to work, although that was a few hours after my first tries.
I don't know what happened. Maybe it was trying to find an Internet connection to check for menu or other updates, and something wasn't working.
Otherwise, the only other nasty thing about this title is that it has NO bookmarking. Nothing automatic or manual.
The 370 and 380 both are using the latest available firmware. The main system goes through a receiver (Onkyo TX-NR609) to my TV (Sony KV-46EX700). The bedroom setup is just a simple HDMI connection to a Samsung LN19A450.
The 380 has a bug where it sometimes doesn't initialize it's Ethernet connection. I have to unplug/plug the cable, or go through the Network menus and just step through the wired Network setup. That's why it probably worked initially, as it couldn't access the network. It's not just me, as others have reported the same issue in the 380 forum.
