Is anyone else having playback problems on their blu-ray? So far, I've had 2 defective copies in a row, with the same problem. About halfway through the movie, the picture starts glitching (pixelating) throughout the rest of the movie. Fast-forwarding/rewinding seems to clear it up but then it happens again whenever I replay the disc. I googled this problem and, apparently, I'm not the only one having this problem. I've seen similar complaints about this on other sites. Is anyone else here having this problem? What do you think?
Should I trade this second copy in for a third copy, or do you think the manufacturer might've sent out a bunch of defective copies? I know it's not my blu-ray player's fault because all my other blu-rays work fine. Am I just having bad luck?
