    When scrolling up/down through My Videos, my machine consistently hangs when using skin Blue 3 Wide. This doesn't happen with Blue 2 or Monochrome. I assume its trying to put some summary info on the screen about the currently selected file, and that overflows or similar.

    To describe in detail: I scroll down the My Videos list (through files in a local HD). The top few entries are all folders and are fine, but when I hit the first video ("Batman Begins.ts") the display no longer updates. I still hear a click every time I scroll. Even Ctrl/Alt/Del doesn't update the screen (but pressing my case power button does cause a Shutdown).

    This consistently happens when I scroll to this file. I don't think there's anything special about it - just the first one in the list. Its a .ts recorded using MP RC3. There is no .xml in the dir with it.

    With either Monochrome or Blue 2 Wide, its fine. The entry can be selected and played just fine.

    I presume I won't have any logs to attach given this requires a power reset. Can attached the 8Gb file if that helps or screen shots before it hangs.



    One other thing: Have always wondered why MP Config section is "Movies" yet MP shows "My Videos". Unnecessarily confusing, especially for first timers. Good thing to fix before final release.
