My X700 hasn't so much as stuttered once in several months, and I've been watching a high amount of triple-layer discs too. Guess I got one of the good ones, not that it's been 100% hassle-free, but those issues are solved now.

Its hit and miss for me. Top Gun Maverick locked up at the layer change, but Bullet Train was perfectly fine.

I just bought a Hisense 55" U6H and was considering the BDP-X700. Is the success rate greater if HDMI goes straight into TV. Maybe these issues are receiver related?

I jinxed myself, just had a minor stutter on Transformers Age of Extinction haha. Typical, that said I found a few bits of dust and some little smears on the disc after I removed it so that's probably what caused it.

The main reason that I have HDMI directly into the TV is to control and set the color separately for that particular input. It's a good reason for buying any Blu-ray or 4k/UHD player with separate outputs for Picture and Sound.

As to your question, maybe/maybe not/maybe sometimes/maybe never
I don't know. Try it and see how it works for you.

Mine goes directly to the TV and I have the issue.

It's a just a blip in these machines unfortunately. A lot of BD-100's freeze on the layer change, usually the last 3rd of the film.

It's annoying but its not a huge hassle. When it happens, just hit stop and eject the disc and then close the tray and play it again. It's usually fine after that.

In the Blu ray hey days Sony players were among the best. I get that physical media has slowly been evolving into niche market but dang, if you sell a player then freakin' support it. Sony should have fixesd this freezing annoyance a long time ago.

Is this a player problem or combined with a format problem in general ?

Should there be some re-thinking how 4k/uhd discs are mastered or made ?

I don't know.
