    A few words about...™ Poltergeist -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Yeah, that was created for me by staff here, including the thread title. Gave this a final spin for the season, being that I originally received a defective copy from Best Buy, to see if it would act up after three plays (because many times this happens with UHD media for some reason), and it...

    A few words about...™ Poltergeist -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    And brands like Oppo, Cambridge, Sony, Reavon, LG, et al weren't concerned about being liable for such things? At the very LEAST, Malcom, they should have implemented a selectable, customizable turn off timer setting in the menu so that the user could select from 10 minutes, 20 minutes, one...

    A few words about...™ Poltergeist -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    It doesn't fit a LOT of owners' uses and wants. Over the last couple of days, we've had to stop playback of our annual horror film watching during this month because our older dog with cognitive disabilities demanded attention from my wife and I for some reason or another. Instead of letting the...

    A few words about...™ Poltergeist -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    I even threw my two cents into this ring by explaining that we have an older dog that's ill, and that we need to regularly press pause on a disc to take care of her, leading to prolonged gaps in viewing (thus making that auto power off feature ridiculously annoying), but it went without any kind...

    Do you have an Oppo 203 you'd be willing to trade? Better yet, if you can cure my 19-year-old Chigi of her ailments (or at least some of my wife's own health issues) so we don't have to pause a disc every 30 seconds, I'll not only give you my Panny player -- I'd be impressed.

    You're lucky; apparently, many of us haven't been...

    A few words about...™ Poltergeist -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    This was a Warner Bros. release, not Universal, but as far as I know, no replacement program has been put in place. I had to return my copy from Best Buy myself, but they had no other copies left to do an exchange, so I had to get a refund and then reorder it online. The whole thing just sucks.

    Yes it is a major issue. Sometimes you have to deal with things going on while you're watching a disc -- in our case, for example, we have a sick dog who has cognitive issues, and we're constantly needing to put a film on pause because she had an accident we must immediately clean up or because...

    A few words about...™ Poltergeist -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Okay. Went to Best Buy to get an exchange for my defective copy. They didn't have any in stock, nor did they have any steelbooks (was willing to pay the difference to get the steel if it meant I'd have a better chance at receiving a playable disc). Had to get a refund and then reorder the...

    A few words about...™ Poltergeist -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    I noticed that on Blu-ray.com, owners are discussing the fact that these issues are indeed occurring after the first viewing -- which is really weird, if you ask me (so it's not only happening to my disc; you can check this out in the thread for the title if you dare visit that cancerous...

    A few words about...™ Poltergeist -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    That's why I had said in retrospect, I shouldn't have mentioned those other titles or issues with the specific player; it was my mistake in my original post. I was only bringing it up because it was becoming frustrating to constantly experience these issues, but with specific regard to...

    4K/UHD Playback Issues

    Okay. This is concerning me now, because it seems to be happening regularly with UHD/4K Blu-rays on my Panasonic DP-UB9000...and I hope it's not the player, because this thing cost us $1K before tax (we're actually still paying it off). Has anyone else who bought the Poltergeist UHD Blu-ray...
