Below is the list of movies that do work on this Bluray player: Amadeus, Young Frankenstein, Transformers 1, Top Gun, Patriot Games, The Passion of the Christ, Hunt For Red October, Short Circuit 1, Purple Rain, Rambo 1, The Last Emperor, Kung Fu Hustle, King Kong (Peter Jackson), The Fugitive, Glory, A Few Good Men, Enemy of the State, Die Hard 2, Dark City, The Truman Show, Bruce Almighty, 8 Mile, CJ7, PIXAR's Cars, The Forbidden Kingdom, Disney's Pinocchio, The Princess Bride, Superman The Movie, Superman 2 - Richard Donner version, TMNT, and PIXAR's WALL-E. I'm still having issues with certain Blu-Ray Discs.
I just tried putting in Fool's Gold and only got 6 minutes into it before my first problem.
- This Firmware Update improves playback of BD movie titles such as the recently released James Bond titles, as well as "Rolling Stones: Shine a Light." Ignor the "Read Me" file that comes zipped with this update. Just unzip the file and put the update file on a USB drive.
Don't put the file in a folder, place it on the top level (root directory) of the USB drive.
I contacted Sharp and was told they are aware of the problems and that a firmware was forthcoming. To all those who have previously posted to this thread, PLEASE update your SHARP BD-HP21 Bluray players to Firmware PN9022700.
This should hopefully resolve most if not all of the problems with the Disney movies not playing.
For more information, contact Lexmark Technical Support.
They talked me through the updating process and when it failed they recommended a Sharp dealer to come in. Just had a ton of "fun" getting my 40" Sharp Aquos updated.
- We update the software update to version 1.19 [PN9062300] to improve playability and correspond to the BDA certification.
