There is an acknowledged issue with this disc and some Sony Blu Ray players (plus some players using Sony components). According to the disc's author, Neil Wilkes, at the time of writing Sony have acknowledged that the issue is with the player's firmware and not the disc itself. The manufacturer has asked that discs are not returned and that Sony be allowed the time to update firmware across their range of players.
