Re: PS4 won't play any movies from disc

Well, that ruled out my theory...I replaced my hard drive with a 1tb drive and resored. Thought maybe the version of the firmware and os on the site were not complete.
Guess not...

Im trying not to mess software and hardware much untill things calm down. Most of the systems functions work and I dont want to screw that up to.

Did not replace my HDD or anything. Everything works but movies. No error message either, just a black screen that lasts until I manually restart the console. (waited over 10 minutes just to be sure it wasn't an unusually long load time. Black screen the whole time)

Definitely gotta be software/ firmware. The drives are having no problem reading games.
Ok...next theory. Is your hdmi plugged into the tv, directly? Or into a tuner/ home theater hook up?
Mine goes into my tuner.

so the game stop I purchased my system from let me exchange it since I bought that 50$ plan, that was cool. until I got home and the new system would not update..said 5hours and the last one updated instanty. then I learned that you had to deactivate from the console itself. I called game stop explained my problem. he let me come get the original system back (the one that wont play movies)..I have been gaming all day minus multiplayer since psn was not up...but now it wont let me ad funds to my wallet or purchase the ps plus and im entering in my info correct...I have waited on the phone all day and never got thru..and that online chat help I could not get into....so ive been playing multiplayer hoping that all this gets fixed...so I cant watch any movies or do anything that requires ps plus (multiplayer for any game)....what should I do?....at least the people at game stop were more helpful that sony. I have been a die hard sony fan...but I cant wait to get that xbox now...I hope they do something nice for all the people who have gotten screwed over with this launch...very very disappointed
