Just got my new XA2, tried several movies.. Picture is awesome, sound, well, clear, but surrounds not as I expected.. Better surround on normal dvd version.. I'm using HDMI for audio, with spdif output set to bitstream, and HDMI to auto..
Anyway, tried playing DUNE hd-dvd, skipped into a few chapter points, then played movie.. All seemed good, then is split second, I lost video...
I thought maybe my T.V. lost signal, but when looking at my XA2, the red ring was on... The player was off!!!!!!!!!!!
Tried the same scene, and played fine..
Watched Children of men tonight, and again the player shut off... UGGGGGGG!!!!!
I went into the setup menu, and turned off the auto shutdown feature, and just selected screen saver mode..
Not sure if player maybe thought nothing was being used and shut off..
Will report as time goes on if this corrected the problem..
I have the newest firmware, 1.3...
I expect more from a $1000 player, as my PS3 has worked awesome for all blu-ray movies...
