Since I installed the last firmware my player freeze after 50mn, I need to switch off and on to restart.
Very annoying,

Is there any solution ?

In which situations does it happens ?
During watching a DVD/BR, video over USB, using Net-TV or all of them and that everytime ?
Did you do a system reset after updating the fw ?
How long do you own the player and how long did you use the former fw ?
Maybe itīs a mechanical problem, f.e. a heat problem.

It happens while watching a DVD, I didn't try with other medias.
I don't remember having resetting the system, I'll do it
The player is almost one year old, I'm not really sure the problem came with the last fw but I'm sure that it didn't happen during the first months of utilization
I didn't suspect a mechanical problem because it happen so much regularly after 50mn, I suppose it would be more erratic if it was a heat problem.
I often watch series with a 42mn format and if I restart the player beetween each epidodes I can watch 3 in a row without any freezing.

I would reset the device completely and also test with USb, net Tv and others. ALso does it happen on certain dvdīs or all?
