Thanks for confirming this. I just before saw your reply, finished testing sounds and I could not find anything wrong, just this display "feature".
My 1800 is still going strong, and I'm not planning to change it yet.
Same here. It has been working well and I have not plans changing it because it has all the features I need for now.
My trusty old PS3 died couple of days ago and I had to get a new player.
I was very happy with the PS3 picture because it is not modifying video output out of standards like many standalone players are. I wanted to try standalone player this time but it was very hard to find one that would be even close to PS3.
I finally got a Panasonic BDT110. It is quite nice but very flimsy and cheap feeling but seems to give unmodified output and even pass BTB and WTW. Using it really makes me miss PS3 even this is quite fast for standalone player. Anyway I likely may get another PS3 later or see if I can get my current one working again (it has that YLOD problem). Seems that PS3 is still king of the blu-ray players. Mine never refused to play any title or did not have any problems, until it suddenly just died.
