    Spoke to ilo tech support today, 2/28. They have a bug in the unit that it will not play DVDs using a type of Sony copy protection. When you play one of these moves that players locks up to the point you must unplug to reset it. Before you ask no current firmware update will fix this. When I called ilo tech support they confirm the issue. The tech even had a list of movies the player would not play. Must be something new from Sony as only new releases are affected. Problem is ilo has known about this bug since December and still does not have a fix or a date on when it will be fixed. Scary that we have a DVD player that will not even play store purchased movies and is still be sold.

    Just to be clear the model I am talking about is the DVDRHD04, DVD recorder with HD. Sorry for any confusion.

    It is on most the new Sony movies with the archos encryption on them. best way to watch them is to rip it and watch the copy.

    I watched the DVD "The Grudge" last night and did not have any problems with my iLO DVDRHD04. I didn't try skipping chapters or copying it to the HDD though.

    edge67 RE; Sony disk problem
    Posted this reply on another forum you posted the same problem

    The new sony copy protection is a problem for many players ( and TV's ) not only ilo. An example is that many TV's would have a bent or folded over settion at the top of the screen. My Sony did, my Sanyo didn't. this was caused by the copy potection on many of the copy protected VHS tapes. DVD does not (seem) to have this problem. The new Sony copy protection is causing a lot of problems not only with ilo. Seems that Sony is attempting to copy protect to the point that a disk will not play PROPERLY on most units and than blame everyone else.You can do the same to a PC with all the protection software and blame problems on a virus.
