I'm not so sure anything has changed. Maybe...
After 1.60 was installed I put in a standard Blu-ray (Trading Places), queued it up and put it on pause. I waited 22 minutes and went to check the player. Bummer, the player had activated the "off timer".
Now, that's a little bit different than a complete shutdown. When I pressed the play button on the remote, the player woke up and, after displaying "Off timer activated" on the screen (twice), the movie restarted exactly where I had paused it. It got back to playing the movie pretty quickly. And that's WAY better than a complete shutdown that forces the disc to reload from the beginning.
However, that's STILL not what I was hoping for. I just want the darn thing to STAY in pause mode for at least 1 hour. No off timer, no shutdown. Just hold pause for 1 hour.
The Trading Places disc I grabbed just happened to be a recent purchase and it was sitting right by the player. I've never played it before this test. Maybe NOTHING has changed? Maybe this particular disc would have done the same thing before the 1.60 firmware?
I plan to test again later today, using a disc that I've had in the player (on pause) before when the player went into automatic shutdown.
BTW, the time-out period is 20 minutes and has been 20 minutes since the UB9000 was released. Some folks on another forum thought it was 10 minutes and they only waited 15 minutes to declare the problem fixed. Nope.
