PS3 Blu-Ray Problems Before & After 1.54 Update?

Yesterday I spent a couple hours running around town trying to find a Blu-Ray version of Casino Royale, which was irritating enough. You would think a new release would be easy to find. I finally put my hands on one thanks to Circuit City and headed to the house to do some HDTV testing with my new test flick.

I get home and put the movie in ready for some HD goodness thanks to my PS3 Blu-Ray player. What I was greeted with was intermittent issues that made the movie react like I had paused it. The control wasn’t in my hand, the movie is new and in pristine condition so user error is out.I would have to pick up the control and hit pause a few times and it would usually keep playing. After a quick look around online I see I’m not the only PS3 owner having this sort of issue. The really bad part for me is that I bought the PS3 mostly to use as a Blu-Ray player as even as good as the graphics on most PS3 games look, my PC is better. Anyone else out there having Blu-Ray playback issues after or before this update? If you are drop me a note here.
