Re: Samsung BD-P1200
A quick update for you all,
I got my second Samsung BDP-120 yesterday, on my Sony KDS 70 XBR2 TV I still have the same problem when run through my HDMI switcher and signal amplifier.
It seems there is a compatability issue with my HDMI signal amplifier, the player is fine when connected directly to the TV. Ironically it works perfectly if after getting the purple screen I go to the HDMI setup in the players menu and switch the type from TV to Monitor or vice versa. Kind of a PITA but I can get around it. As for the wife and kids... this is a deal breaker so it's going back, I'll keep the Sony BDP-S1 in that system for now until something better comes along.
