    I've had the BR for awhile but this was the first chance I had to watch it. Tried watching it with the HUD, but while I got the video pop-up, I couldn't get the sound for what was in the window (normal sound works fine, though). Any ideas?

    I've never tried watching TF with the HUD option, but it sounds like your Blu Ray player is outdated. Try updating the firmware. If you have a PS3, this is quick and painless. If you do not have a PS3, it is complicated and cumbersome.

    Unfortunately, not all BR players are update capable, even with the complicated route.

    Pretty sure mine is. Don't know the model off hand - it was the newest Sony model 10 months ago.

    Ouch. Looks like you will do it the complicated and cumbersome way. I update my PS3 ASAP because it's that easy. With my non-PS3 Blu-Ray player, I update it about once a year because it's just that tedious.

    Do what I did: look at the model # of your system, and Google it. For example, if it's the T-800, you Google: "T-800 Blu-Ray update." The first result should get you what you need. Once you click, you'll get the most complicated set of instructions which basically consists of the following steps:

    1. Download something.
    2. Convert it into something else.
    3. Burn it onto a CD-R.
    4. Put it into your system and wait about 20 minutes.
