    I've had my Sharp player for about a month and hadn't had any problems, but now I am having problems playing all the new Fox titles:
    Jumper
    Shutter
    Point Break

    All are BD50 MPEG-4 discs.

    I checked the Fox titles had had watched with no problems and found
    most were either BD25 or MPEG-2 discs, but some WERE BD50 MPEG-4 discs.

    i'm now afraid to rent other recent Fox titles Longest Day, Patton etc.

    I have heard that Sharp has a new firmware that fixes 'Jumper' but will it fix all problems with newer Fox titles?
    Or will it be a new firmware for every title?

    I had been reisitant on adding any firmeware updates as I hadn't had ANY problems before now.

    I'd hate to open a can of worms and cause other problems by installing an update for a few titles.

    Are there any Sharp BD 20 owners out there who can help?

    Thanks if you can!!

    I put in the newer firmware this evening and it corrected the BR Stargate Continuum disc which was distributed thru Fox.

    Thanks guys.

    I was avoiding any firmware updates until i encountered any problems.
    I guess the time is now, as it seems all the new releases from Fox won't play until i get the firmware.
