Rented Alice in Wonderland in HD today. My PS 3 decided it doesn't want me to see what I paid for.

I fucking hate copy protection!!!

I read somewhere back awhile ago that the companies were doing this purposeful periodic adjustment to the HDCP on BR movies which no doubt caused the problem you are encountering on the PS3. That is why I prefer Oppo`s players since they, unlike the mainstream companies, continue to provide regular technical support and firmware updates to help alleviate problems like this.

Oh I'm sure there's a software update. They just don't have the balls to say that my drm shit is out of date.

The first time this happened last week I didn't even get the cryptic 'your software might not work with this disk' message.

Its just a stupid pain in the ass that probably drives a lot of people to completely bypass the drm.

Oddly enough, we just had a problem with a BR movie tonight... brand new disc, not a scratch, but several glitches and it finally froze about 8-9 minutes into it. I wonder if I need a software update??

I agree. Since getting my BDP83 a year ago I’ve had one BD that didn’t want to load and play. Updated the firmware and problem solved.

Isn't it possible that the particular player simply doesn't like some particular minute scratches?

No Mark. The player downgreded the resolution on my display.

My anger comes from two things. First that I have to piddle around with updates to watch something I paid to watch. Second, that the messaging aroudn the downgrade is anything but clear.

Some feature of this disk migh not work??? If you are going to handcuff the user, at least have the balls tell them why. "Your copy protection is out of date and your image is going to be downscaled.
