Default Re: Samsung Sued Over Blu-ray Players That Won't Play All Discs

Well, in defense of the firmware updates.... can't believe I am defending them, BUT.

I have heard of machines going down with firmware updates, I don't know what happened, but they are really clear in the directions to not allow any alterations in power. I usually run mine only on clear days and now on a system with battery backup, so possibly this was the cause?

Initially, some Blu-ray discs wouldn't play without firmware updates, yes it was a huge PITA, but nowadays, my players work fine and play everything I throw at them. Ironically, the only time a firmware update did anything bad to one of my players is was an update to my Toshiba HD XA2 that now WON'T play a disc (OK, it was an early HD DVD porn, but it used to play before the update).

I am more frustrated by the painfully long load time for menu's, come on guys, you make me wait to load I don't know what and then suffer through all the trailers, OK, it's alright for new films, but when I've already seen all the films they are showing, it's annoying.
