    BluRay Question

    I bought a BluRay player about a year ago, I got the movie Boondock Saints for Christmas and for some reason when the Menu comes up to play the Theartical Version or Unrated Version it get stuck in a loop and won't actually play the movie. I took it back and got a new verison and have the same problem. Has anyone ran into this problem with BluRays before and might have a suggestions on how to get around it. I have never had any issues with this player and still don't it plays other BluRays and DVD just fine.

    Re: BluRay Question

    I had this on my blu-ray player. I went to the support site for my player and discovered there was an updated version of the firmware available. I followed the instructions and updated my player, and everything works fine now.

    I think the way they encode newer blu-rays has changed somehow, and you need to have updated firmware to read it.

    Re: BluRay Question

    Go to Blu-ray.com - Blu-ray Movies, Players, News, Reviews, Blu-ray DVD, Blue-ray, BD and search the forums. It's one of the best places to find out info on blu-ray discs and players.


    Watch it man there's a beverage here!

    That's the first thing that I had to do when I bought a new Blu-Ray player last week. Even though it was new, there already was updated firmware that had to be installed.

    read it.
    How did you update the firmware? Removable media? Wireless connection?

    I don't know how benjay updated his, but I went to the manufacturer's website and downloaded the update onto a CD. Took that and put it into the Blu-Ray player and followed the on-screen instructions. Worked slick.

    I burned it onto a cd. When you put the cd in the player, it mostly takes care of itself. Note: Make sure it's a cd! I burned it onto a dvd first and it did not work!

    You can probably do it directly over the internet if your player has an ethernet port or a wireless adapter.

    This is one big advantage for the PS3, auto updates.

    True. I have a ps3 also. I like my standalone blu-ray player though - it works with my universal remote.
