Default HP21U and Avatar

My HP21U model has the the last firmware update from Sharp which was version PN9110600. I was able to play Avatar but the chapter selection kept popping up every minute or so.

I have sent a message to Sharp asking if/when they will be posting updated firmware. Considering the number of folks who would like to watch Avatar, I hope they can do so in the near future.

I received this player as a freebie when I picked up my new TV and I hate to be a jerk, but the player is terrible. Its unbearably slow, has a clunky interface, doesn't respond well to commands (often freezing up when you don't let it take its 40 minutes to chapter switch or turn on and/or off) and, like many others have posted, has issues playing numerous discs.

I found the best way to deal with these issues was to upgrade! I am now very happy with my blu ray player and it is not a Sharp. The worst of Sharps issues were in its customer service!

Default HP50_126.RVP is corupt

the latest update [HP50_126.RVP] that sharp has on their website is corrupt. i have done everything under the sun, from reformatting my flash drive to putting a copy of the latest firmware on another, brand new flash drive, to get this to run in software update (i am fairly tech savvy) on my blu-ray machine, to no avail. i ALWAYS the message, "more than one file detected". can ANYONE advise another course of action to install the latest update?

I had Band of Brothers for a year and Sharp never addressed this issue. To see the series I upgraded and I had no problem playing these disks on my Oppo.
Best of luck to you in getting a good blu ray player.

Default I have found the solution to the problem

I just joined this forum, long time reader, so I figured I would get in on the action and also I really want to comment on the Sharp Player problems. I had all kinds of issues with my player(BD-HP21). Half the discs I tried would not play, or they would hang up and take forever to load.

FIRST, PERFORM AN UPDATE AND INSTALL MOST RECENT FIRMWARE. EVEN IF YOU HAVE THE MOST RECENT INSTALLED, INSTALL IT AGAIN.

SECONDLY, AND MOST IMPORTANT, AFTER THE UPDATE AND A POWER CYCLE, YOU HAVE TO SELECT THE SYSTEM RESET OPTION!!!!

The manual doesnt list this very important step for the update process.

After I did the update followed by a SYSTEM RESET, I have NO PROBLEMS AT ALL!!

Every BluRay disc, old, new, or even DVDs will play perfectly. It is night and day. They all load up and play without any problems. I am so glad I accidentally discovered this crucial step, because I was fed up and about to buy a new unit.

Default New update

Last time I updated was 2 years ago. Been watching far fewer BluRay since Netflix upped prices, and since I got DTV. However, I just checked "on a whim" and found a brand new 3-day old update!

Refer to post above re: system reset after the update. I have NOT TRIED THIS, and don't recall doing it ever before, so I can't report results. What I <DO> know is that every update has improved my player's performance.

FROM SHARP DOWNLOAD PAGE:
Firmware for BD-HP21U:

Version PN9220500 Date 7/23/2012

**FOR U.S. PLAYERS ONLY**

ALSO DOWNLOAD THESE:
Instructions for downloading and updating the firmware on the following models:
BDHP21U
BDHP50U

Please follow these instructions to update the firmware of your Blu-ray Disc player.

Default Thank You topgeardan

I have been wanting to watch Good Will Hunting for a very long time on Blu-Ray but could not because I knew I needed a firmaware update that Sharp just wasn't providing. But thanks to your post I was informed they finally had and it worked out perfectly.
Thank You!
