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!!

The new f/w will probably help with all of them:

If it's not worth waiting until the last minute to do, then it's not worth doing.

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.
