I don't believe the hassles will end, even if you get a new player. The program producers are constantly pushing the envelope of the non-essential features of the discs.
Of course, all manufacturers do a better job of keeping up than Samsuck.
But to be fair, there should be a law for disc producers to provide a movie-only shortcut in their products that bypasses all the exploitative, troublesome crap.
