Default Sony UBP-X800 freezes and locks up on Chapter 6 of Dune4K

I had to switch to the BluRay copy of the disc to finishing watching it. It stuttered on a couple of 4K releases in the past but a little rewind and play and it played through. Dune totally locks it up. Anyone else with this issue?

I had the issue on 2 different X700's but I'm convinced Sony needs to stop making these players as they don't work well.

Edit - Not with Dune though,.... I threw out my second X700 a while back. Endgame may have been it's last disc that locked up.

I currently use a Panasonic UB420 and I"m tempted to pick up the Panasonic UB9000 but the 420 has a cooler model number if nothing else.

I wish Sony has a good player as they are my first choice for disc player but for UHD BD I would not try one unless it was a new model... not a third try at a broken model.

I had the same issue with a Sony BluRay player BDP-S360 with Total Recall with Beckinsale as one of the main actors.

I will never go back to Sony again .

I was thinking of getting the midpriced model, the 820. How do you like the 420?

I do like the Panasonic UB420.

It has been solid. It locked up once when I watched End Game and that actually could be due to the disc. I sometimes buy used discs.

I have it hooked up again and I'm going to give it a chance. I was going to buy the UB9000 at one point but something came up and ate the bank. I would buy one because the 420 has been very good. i can honestly only remember it having problems that one time.

I tried wiping down both sides of the 4K disc and went to the problematic chapters and it played cleanly through, no skips, no freezes, nothing. I will watch the 4K version again tonight and see if it plays through. If it does, I will cancel the return back to Amazon and will have saved some money on a new 4K player.

Good news. I watched it again without a single skip or freeze. I guess the disk had some residue on from the factory
