Default Panasonic 310 sound but no picture on region-free UK Sherlock titles

I have a Panasonic 310 Blu player and I have found that it has played various UK region-free titles before with no problem, but in trying to play Sherlock series one or two, all I get is the sound, but no picture. The really weird thing is I get text showing (such as the main menu) but still no picture. I tested other Blus (U.S.) in it and they display the picture fine.

I just tried the 1.88 update but no change.

Anyone have any ideas?

From what I see they are region free but 1080i50 which I guess your player can't accept (to be verified but my guess)

Yep Sherlock season 1 and 2 are both 1080i50.

So what's the point of it being "region free" if you can't actually PLAY IT? I just got this for me and my Dad (his birthday present) and he just called me up saying it wouldn't play. Talk about embarrassing.
