Stupid Blu Ray Players. (Bender type rant)

Postby thefourthman » Fri Dec 31, 2010 9:43 pm

ARRRGGGHHH... It's probably stupid Scott Pilgrims fault.

I gave the family a blu ray player for christmas. It's awesome. It's a Vizio VBR210 with wifi. I watched all of Weeds season 3 on it. We watched Avatar, Sherlock Holmes and Scott Pilgrim on it no problem.

I get Dark City on Blu Ray from netflix (no I have never seen it). It doesn't play. I report it as non functioning and get another one. My brother comes over tonight to watch Toy Story 3. We put it in. It plays fine for a bit then starts stopping and freezing. Take the disc out look at it, it's okay put it back in... it kicks it out. Now it want play any Blu Ray. Watching BAtman Under the hood on it right now. The internet apps seem to work fine, just says Blu Rays are unknown.

I figure it must be a firmware problem and try to update it. I get an error.

I go to vizio's website to figure it out. nothing on the site is helpful... so I hit the vizio chat and the following happens -
Conversation
Vizio: Welcome to Vizio Live Chat.
Vizio: All agents are busy assisting other customers. Your chat request will be answered in the order it was received.
Vizio: Your current position in queue is 4.

Vizio: Vizio has joined

Vizio: Thank you for contacting VIZIO Live Chat in South Dakota, my name is Steffanie Badge # 432. What can I assist you with today?

lee newman: I am having problems playing blu rays...
lee newman: I thought maybe I should do a firmware upgrade, but I am getting a server error (11000404)
lee newman: your search gave me nothing on that error...
lee newman: can you advise?
Vizio: Here at VIZIO we pride ourselves in the Best in Class technical and customer support. I can definitely assist you with that today.

Vizio: If you are getting a server error that means there is no update for the player at this time.

Vizio: Go to Settings in the Home Menu and choose Reset Factory Defaults Only and then test out a disc

lee newman: doing now
Vizio: Vizio has left the conversation


What the fuck?
So I try to reconnect (after futilely asking if they are there)... nothing. Hit the vizio website again, figure I should reconnect.... the stupid chat system is down until tomorrow.

AAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHH!!!!

That's what I get for trying to do something nice!

Dammit.

Anyone have any idea what is going on.

(yes I already called to find their offices closed and no helpful routing information on the phone menu and I sent them a very a rational yet, upset email about the whole situation...)

I just want to watch a fucking kid's movie for god's sake!!!!

ITT: BluRay Players and Vizio hate you.

You probably pissed off some god... since I read that Twigg may be a god and considering how you post towards him... bitch at Twigg.
"Why are you pointing your screwdrivers like that? They're scientific instruments, not water pistols."
"Oh, the pointing again! They're screwdrivers! What are you going to do? Assemble a cabinet at them?"
"Are you capable of speaking without flapping your hands about?"
""Timey" what? "Timey wimey"?"

Now? Now go drink a large bottle of whiskey, say something like Jack Daniels.

Once finished, you should not a give a shit about anything, least of all Twiggs moans of bitchdom. If you do, drink another larger bottle. :wink:

Otherwise, buy a better brand next time or try not to have problems during the holidays.

I don't know, but since you just got it and it's fucked up... :smt102

Have you tried unplugging it for a day? Then replug it in to see what happens. Still fucked? Then take a hammer to the asshole that sold it to you or Twigg. Which ever is more accessible and less likely to lead to charges and jail time. Try to get a hold of the company or get it replaced under warranty.

Tomorrow is New Year's day, everything is pretty much closed, so who are you calling a dumbass? :lol:

Just have your bill from the purchase and the warranty papers. You'll be fine. Chances are it'll get replaced.

I doubt it's a firmware problem if it's a recent model.

Good luck on MONDAY and try not to swear too much.

no, but it's made by sony who fucking invented the technology. I didn't expect it to decide playing three of them was enough. You buy me a PS3!

If you bought it because it was cheaper than a PS3, then that should have answered your original question. :P

William Wang, Founder / CEO


A player built by a guy named Wang...

Nothing about Sony there.
