I'm using a Panasonic BD-50.

    Thanks for the response. i went to the BD live site and downloaded the two live extras ( in lowest resolution or at least smallest number so it would get done quicker)....until the little button read "done " in green. Hummmm...now i can't quite remember...(hehehe) but then i pressed play and there was nothing happening...gave it about 5 or 6 minutes. No response.

    Gotcha.

    The good news, if you can call it that, is that it isn't you. After my download finished, I got the same result. I too picked the standard definition version, because the d/l speed from Warner's BD-Live site is unbelievably slow. Maybe the hi-def versions would produce a different result, but at this point I'm not willing to wait the extra few hours to find out.

    Ahhh.....there is comfort in company...things like this are frustrating....certainly does not make one look at new ideas without skepticism. i really haven't tried other discs...but someday.....
    Thanks

    Don't let this put you off all BD-Live downloads. I've never had this problem with content from Sony's site or from Paramount's. The problem here may be that Warner doesn't do many discs with BD-Live content, and they're still learning how to do it right.
