Is there any way to tell if a disc has the watermark? I used a DVD-RW with a copy of the TV show Homeland. I would hope that an incompatible disc wouldn't kill the machine and require the power cord to be disconnected.
I just tried again. Another DVD-RW with a different TV show worked, the old one killed it again. That's not good if a bad disc can do that.
ADD: It's definitely the content. I burned something else on the disc and it worked. I burned the bad image on another disc and it killed the player again. I find it strange that I can turn the player off with the remote, the button on the player and even over CEC from the TV but I have to unplug it to turn it back on. It must be setting a flag in volatile memory or something, either that it somehow corrupts RAM and unplugging clears it.Edited by Ehoser - 3/28/13 at 11:41am
