Well, there you have it. The only variable I can think of is the driver version as I'm still using 701. Again, as bradavon has already said in an earlier post, it's just weird that there seems to be very little consistency between people's experience with this machine and the movies they watch. But, to be fair with LG, it's not just the BH200 that has these issues. Most every Blu-ray and HD DVD player I can think of has had at least a few issues with a few disks until a firmware update took care of it.
@Sharkology - just wondering, any reason you haven't tried reinstalling the March firmware after downloading the 702 driver? If I were you, I'd just be curious to see if it made any difference.

Fair enough for those who've found that helps but I personally am not convinced re-installing the firmware actually makes any difference, it sounds more like a coincidence to me. That's just my opinion though.
For just about the first time ever, I'm going to have to disagree with you here bradavon. I actually think that there might be some legitimacy to the idea of reinstalling the March firmware after upgrading the driver. Granted, in this digital world of ours, where everything is nothing more than a series of repeatable 1's and 0's, you should always get a perfect copy of the information. You should
. But, digital information gets corrupted a 100 different ways by a 100 different things all the time. Is it possible that firmware, especially a "beta" firmware, could degrade over time? I think so. As anyone who uses Windows on a regular basis can attest to, stranger things have happened.
Of course, I'm hope that you're right and everything will continue to be fine for me after I get everything hooked up this weekend and download the 702 driver, but you never know. I've got several new HD DVD and Blu-ray disks coming from Amazon, so I'm looking forward not only to enjoying my new HD audio system, but also testing more disks for you!
