I have an Anthem Blu-ray player and after a few months it starts rejecting
blu-ray discs—-they literately just eject—-especially Lionsgate
discs. Anthem exchanged the unit for a new one and it does exactly
the same thing, but all my blu-ray discs will play on any other
player. Anthem says they don’t know of any problems with the
player, but .I feel like I’m going to get stuck with an $800 player that
ejects half my blu-ray collection. I’ve proved to the shop what it
does, and I’m still waiting word from the shop and Anthem what they will do
about it this time. Have you heard of this problem before
from other players?
I haven’t heard of the issue before specifically with Anthem BD players, but the problem does come up from time to time with BD players and to a lesser extent DVD players.

A personal experience I’ve had is a Blu-ray concert disc from the group Airbourne Toxic Event. My wife pops it into our Pioneer Elite BD player and the unit doesn’t play it. I then try it on an old Panasonic player and it works.
