I've been really happy with my LX500, but as I play more and more 4K discs, I am noticing more frequent freezes and skips. Movies that have exhibited this so far are Dunkirk, A Quiet Place, Schindler's List, and Ready Player One, that come to mind. Possibly one or two others, as well.
I've read posts in this thread by others with similar issues; is it just a disc problem, which cleaning will help? I've tried this, and it seems to work sometimes, other times not. If a freeze occurs, it sometimes lasts just a few seconds, other times, I have to power down the player and restart. Sometimes the freeze does not reoccur; sometimes it does at the same spot, or a slightly different spot.
Will a firmware upgrade eventually solve this? (I have the latest version now.) Or is it the discs themselves? It seems like a lot of different movies will have the problem, if it is disc based.
I will be looking for a different player if the problem continues.
