I have had continuing problems with episodic disks. When I did a clean un/reinstall awhile back that helped with some, perhaps even most disks, but not all and now the problem is back virtually all the time. I can't work with any of them. I just did the clean install again using the latest version and that didn't help at all.
It appears to copy OK, but when I click for a particular episode, it just goes into a loop and ends up back on the main episode page of the menu, without playing any content. I does play OK on the computer (at least one that I tested), but not on my Denon or Panasonic desktop dvd players.
I never had problems until this year. I really like this product and would like to work out this problem, but it's been months now and no solution in sight.
