Just bought this brand new Smart Blu-ray player 30/03/2016 at Argos which plays MP4 movies both on the disc drive and the usb pen drive stick.
Cinavia copyright protection is not detected in either case.
I found it a nuisance with certain films I wanted to watch,having an error message and muted sound interruption..
Unit can't be DVD upgraded to Region Free even tried with an external hack..
Hey-oh! you can't have everything..LOL
I believe the Cinavia is a product introduced by Sony as a deterrent for copying, so it seems strange to now sell a unit made by them, that by-passes their own anti-copying startegy?
