Samsung BD-F6500 Blu-ray Player sound drop outs when playing Deep Water Horizon (Lionsgate Discs)

First Poster

Hi,

I'm getting sound drop outs when playing my Deep Water Horizon Blu-ray disc.

 

I've been told it's a problem with Lionsgate discs as they are using a strange disc encoding system to try to prevent pirating.

 

The disc plays fine in my other player which is a Panasonic DMP-BDT500.

 

This would indicated that the BD-H6500 needs a firmware update to fix this issue.

 

Can you please look into this issue?

I've tried to send an email direct to Technical Support but it won't go through as I need to put my model number in but the form won't let me change the default setting of "null".

We can take a screenshot of this thread and send it to our Tech Support colleagues for you. Is there any other technical-related info you’d like to add for them?

Please do.

 

I got my Blu-ray model number wrong.

It's BD-F6500 and I already have the latest Firmware which came out in 2015.

 

I think it needs a new firmware update.

Thanks.
I'll give it a try.

I found a much more simpler solution though.
The disc plays perfectly in my Panasonic Panasonic dmp-bdt500 blu-ray player.
