Sorry, I couldn't put the subject more succinctly. Basically almost all movies that I download play perfectly on my computer. But some, when played through the USB on my bluray player to my tv, will have like jittery playback and the sound cuts off once in a while, if only for a second. Any ideas what causes this? The latest problem file was 'Expendables 2', the Public HD 16 gig file.

No, and here's why. As I said, most movies play fine, so it's not the USB. Secondly, last night I downloaded a different uploaders version of the same movie, 'Expendables 2', and guess what? The sound dropped out in the same exact places, and the picture had the same jittery motion, which means, and I won't name names, but some uploaders merely take someone else's upload and claim it for themselves, sometimes, as in this case, not even checking the quality of the work. Also, I checked this one on my computer first and it does it there as well, so it's definitely not the USB.

Thanks, Jean. The file size is not the problem. I've been downloading the biggest file sizes (up to 16 gig) for a couple of years. Mostly they've never given me a problem. It's just lately that I seem to be getting problem files more often. If I get one but I really want to see the movie I'll get one without a DTS soundtrack, but I prefer DTS. Anyway, I guess it's just one of those 'cycles of life' things.
