CA 751bd and the The Hobbit playback problem!
English

Is any one else having problems playing the new Hobbit blu ray movie?

When i play it on my 751bd the pop up menu stays on for the whole movie. I thought it was maybe an error with the disc but its not. I tried the film on my other CA 650bd and it plays normaly.

I have the same player myself, firmware up to date and have same issue with The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug.

Tried disc in 2 other players I have & it  played perfectly.

I have neither the player nor the disc, however only yesterday I read about this issue in another forum. Apparently there also hasn't been any new firmware for ages.

Would be interesting to know if the 752 is also affected.

It plays fine on my Pioneer.  I don't get problems with new discs.  I think this is where Oppo and Marantz have done really well with their Blu-Ray players.

RE: CA 751bd and the The Hobbit playback problem!

Having the same trouble myself on my Oppo BDP-93 (which I believe the CA 751 is based on?) but found if I let the movie start (with pop-up menu visible) then press stop, then play, then select 'return to last time played' -no pop-up menu. If you do select the pop-up menu while movie is playing you should be able to select the special features.

Hopefully the same fix will work with the CA player

Must be a firmware update coming.  We have not had one in a while.

Not one in 2 years in fact. And I'd wish they'd issue a fix for gapless music playback through USB.
