    May be HDD related? Games and saving access the HDD, watching BR doesn't?

    Might be an idea to back it up. Then you could maybe look at formatting the drive. Have you replaced your HDD at all?

    Don't worry about warranty, Sony customer service are quite good and will usually replace/repair faults out of warranty.

    Maybe try formatting the HDD first, or just ring Sony Customer Service: 08705 99 88 77
