USB memory stick w/ scrolling titles locking up player
This is in addition to my previous post on lockups.
Titles that are too long to display automatically scroll.
Now, any of those will lock the machine up completely as soon (or shortly after) as you toggle down to them. Even before you can select them for playback. These are mp4 recording off of U-Tube from various sources. None commercial, many are videos recorded by the poster. I don't believe any of that has anything to do with the problem since it is when I stop on one of these selections with a long text name the problem shows. if I can get the selection to play, they seem to play ok, I don't recall having problems there.
The memory itself is a SanDisk Extreme USB 3.0 32GB. I haven't tried another stick yet, thou it seems doubtful that is the problem. I current firmware is 1.387 which I haven't updated. I don't use any of the Internet functions. The only way to recover is hold the power button down until it powers down or unplug the unit. I have read about these (and Sony players, among others) locking up while 'streaming' material, but that isn't the case here.
Recording free OTA TV for 'time shifting' has been here since 1975. Will there be DVR's to do the same when ATSC3 obsoletes existing DVR's??
