Don't feel like the Lone Ranger's here. Over on the BD-UP5000 combo/dual player forums we have discovered the following movies so far that no longer play running the new 1.5 update for "Dances with Smurfs"; I Robot, Man on Fire, Speed, Mr. and Mrs. Smith and Die Hard 1-3, Cast Away, MaC:FSotW, PotC:atWe, Sunshine, Behind Enemy Lines, and who knows how many other older Fox titles. Pirates 3 is the only non Fox title we have found, so far, that now does not play. I have a bunch coming from various online/mail rental outfits this weekend to verify more. Seems to be mid-2006 - Spring 2008 released FOX catalog titles (not new release recent movies) and a major common thread are ones that were released on D-VHS DTheater. Our hope is that this is a case of left out BD-Java and BD+ fixups and that a fix will be released soon. Not a good thing to release f/w to fix one blockbuster, just to kill 12 or more others.
