    Yesterday I was watching a streaming movie and with 3 minutes left the Sony 5100 BD player locked up. First time I've seen this happen. Don't know if it was the player or the feed, but I couldn't even shut the player off with the remote. I ended up pulling the cord and starting the movie all over again when I plugged the player back in. Not quite sure what happened. Anybody seen this before?

    Thanx, I thought it might have been a glitch by NF. As long as I know it's common to the BD player, I can live with it.

    Why just "live with it"? Get Roku and enjoy all the features of top-notch streaming video plus all the extra channels.

    Nick, I've posted many times that I don't like the Rokus. It's just a matter of personal choice.

    the point is Roku's boxes handle easy and nice all glitches (actually stream's corruption - dropped packets, etc) as they have local 'connection' between two companies here, residing just a couple miles apart ;)

    third party players like LG, Samsung, Sony are to big and heavy to follow fast changing technology
