I rented The Fountain. Woke up this morning and made some coffee. Fired up the trusty HD-A2 and inserted The Fountain. It didn't play at all. I received a code. Although this code was 408bc2
04. Ejected the movie. Waited about 20 seconds. Re-inserted the movie and it's playing fine. Thank god it isn't a heat issue since the player was off all night and the ambient temp in here is currently 60 F. (Good call hidefpaul
The movie played fine all the way through after re-insertion. Didn't do anything else.
These codes mean something. The encryption on the disc and how it interacts with the player/firmware. It's almost as if the player needs to read it one time to "learn" the encryption. In both instances (Matrix & Fountain) the disc plays fine after re-insertion
I'm still using firmware 1.5. I'll only upgrade to 1.6 if absolutely necessary.
