Gladiator issues

Regardless of what you may have been told by Tesco, Wharfedale, Currys or any other interested party with regards to the recent Gladiator problems, no official statement has been made - anyone telling you that upgrades will be available are passing on unconfirmed and decidedly flaky information. We're still waiting on official statements from all the companies involved - we have spoken to some of them and as soon as the situation is resolved we will post details of what you need to do. There's little point in contacting the companies directly - as we've already seen some phone staff aren't fully aware of the situation and any information you receive could be flawed. One thing's for sure - don't rush into returning your discs or exchanging your player. There may be a simple solution to the problems and steps are currently being taken to prevent this sort of thing occuring in the future. Finally, regardless of speculation elsewhere we can confirm that the disc plays fine on the Sony Playstation 2 - it does appear that the console does indeed feature the LSI Logic firmware (in a slightly modified form) as exclusively uncovered by DVD Times earlier this year.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
