Buy a new player!!! They are dirt cheap now and infinitely superior to the old models. I had your player around 2008 and it was a horrible player. Get one of the current Sony models for around $100, you won't regret it.

I can not play the new Spiderman title on this player. I hate to say it, but after 5 years Sony may be done supporting "The Tank".

Which is a shame because you don't put old flagships out to the bone yard like an old battleship.

In the past, Sony has issued new firmware when it periodically released new firmware for its other players. Guess we'll have to wait and see what happens. I still have the BDP-S1 although I don't use it as the primary player.

Has anyone contacted Sony regarding the playback issues they're experiencing?
