Just got my bdx2500, and decided to play toy story 3 on Friday. About an hour into the movie, the picture paused and pixalated. After a few minutes, it just skipped 2 chapters ahead. I turned it off, wiped off the disc, and tried again, but still the same problem. I put the blu ray in my ps3 and it played that part fine.
So I looked on-line and saw that a few people are having the same issues with Toshiba and LG players. I decided to call Toshiba yesterday, and to my surprise, the guy more or less told me to get my money back and buy a different product. He told me that this was a problem, and that I would most likely have other issues as well. Basically he said the 2500 is a bad product. I wanted Toshiba because of Regza link.
I like to watch movies when I am going to sleep, and I have gone through about 5 dvd players because they will spin all night while I sleep and eventually break. Regza turns off the unit once the TV turns off (via the timer). So I really need that feature, but all Toshibas seem bunk. I'm a bit confused what to do. If it is just TS3, then that is okay, but I am concerned this will carry over more and more in the future. And I also bought the network adapter. I hate to spend all that money on something that won't last long.
