I purchased a Vizio VBR334 Blu-ray player 14 months ago at Target. It's worked well until now. Last night I rented a Blu-ray disc from RedBox and tried to play it. A notice came up on the screen:
"WARNING: Your Blu-ray Player requires an update in order to play this disc. Visit your Blu-ray Player manufacturer's website and follow their instruction to update your Blu-ray Player."
Vizio does not have a firmware update for this product and, according to their "customer service" representative, does not have one in the works.
This is outrageous! They are not keeping-up with technology or Blu-ray copyright standards. My Blu-ray player is now worthless. Next time, I'll buy a Sony or Sharp.
Monetary Loss: $130.
