Sony BDP-S1 Blu-ray playback problems
We have posted video footage of Blu-ray player problems on the Samsung BD-P1000 in the past. This time around, we have a clip from a user having issues with The Pirates Of The Caribbean Blu-ray Liar’s Dice game on the Sony BDP-S1 Blu-ray player.

Update that Blu-ray player firmware!
The problem is likely due to an issue with the Sony BDP-S1 players’ handling of BD-J, the interactive Blu-ray Java specifications. The author of the video appears to have updated the firmware to version 1.6, but that did not fix the playback problems as you can see from the video. Luckily, firmware update 2.0 is now available for that player, which should resolve these playback issues. You can get the 2.0 firmware update online at Sony.com.
