how many of you out there have had freezing issues with your 800m2? are they repeatable? any speculation on the cause (hardware vs. software)?
we don't watch movies all that often (1-2/month typically), so i am concerned with buying a unit and only to discover that 3 months later, i have a bad unit with intermittent freezing. or worse, this freezing issue is a common element in all of these Sony UHD players and something i should have avoided.
this won't be a streaming machine for us, purely for renting 4K discs from Redbox and the few that we buy/own. (currently only own two)
I haven't had any freezing with my X800M2s, but then I don't watch movies very often with them. I mostly am using them to stream my multichannel audio tracks (DSD & FLAC) from my DLNA server since my Yamaha receivers don't do multichannel.
