Exclamation Re: Samsung Bluray BDP1400 not playing all discs

Well, let me tell you about extended warranties: In 1999 I bought a Demo Sharp
Video Projector from Good Guys in Orange County CA. I paid $750 for the store
demo unit and bought an extended warranty. Later I moved to Salinas, CA and
had a problem with the lamp. I called the San Jose store and they promised to
send someone to replace the lamp. After two weeks they were unable to find
anyone in the Monterey area and no one from San Jose wanted to make the drive.
I demanded a new projector. They had dropped the Sharp line so they replaced
it with a Yamaha DP-X-1 HD projector with a value at the time of $9995!
I again bought the extended warranty and under that warranty I had 5 lamps
replaced at 1000 hours...all under the warranty.
The warranty on the Sharp cost me about $300.
Want more? I bought an iMac in 2000 with the CRT. It had a problem that apple
could not fix despite home visits. B/C I had apple care I got a new computer and
they replaced the unit with the first flat panel iMac. The first iMac was a refurb
unit.
None of this stuff is reliable enough not to buy an extended warranty.

Default Re: Samsung Bluray BDP1400 not playing all discs

I'm with you on that. Especially the larger purchases. I bought a Samsung 61" DLP before this Mitsu and has to have the input board replaced like 3 times because the component 2 input continually had issues. The guy told me the boards were very expensive hundreds of dollars... So on a $2,000+ T.V. 200 bucks was worth it.

But on a $300 Blu-ray the $100 or so plan was silly, when they are now $200 or so and they are working better.

Anybody have issues with the Sony S300 player? Any good for $195 bucks?

Try Square Trade warranties -- less expensive that store add-ons, and seem to give real coverage.

Also my Denon 3808 says TruHD when it in bitstream (truhd) tracked movies and MultiCh IN when its on PCM (uncompressed movies). But I have to go in and switch the samsungs output depending on the movie track, correct?

Also what the "F" is up with this damn thing not playing alot of my Standard def DVDs and "upconverting" them to 1080p!!!! That was the whole damn idea. Now I have two dvd players in my rack depending if i need to watch a bluray or a stan def dvd....

The current update I have done was 080418.01_XAA I know there is another one out but these updates never seem to fix it. Did any of you guys get results with this and what about the other issues with switching the output and all that? Thanks

Pardon the interruption, I have the BDP1500, not the 1400, but also the Denon 3808CI of which you speak. I recommend leaving the Sammy on Bitstream all the time. I do for both BD and SD discs. My display shows "Dolby True HD" or "Dolby Digital" depending on the material playing at the time. Drawback is that Bonus-View, and all the other things I doubt I would ever use, will not be sent to the Denon (according to some other posts I have read), unless you switch the player to PCM. Leave the Denon on Auto, and it will figure out what to do.

"Chatting" with Samsung reps the other day (a nice feature of their site, BTW), I have the latest firmware from the 24Aug08 upgrade (which does seem to reset the few settings I have changed). You can defeat the up-converting and have the Denon do it by changing the BDP display setting to 480/720, if you wish, but you will then have to change it back for BD playback. I leave mine at 1080p.

I seem to be able to go through ads by hitting next chapter until I can get to the proper title.

My manual spends a few pages regarding TIME setup, and the NTP server. Don't bother, it is not displayed on the players. My Netgear GS105 switch says 10Mbs until I check for upgrades, then it shows 100Mbs, to my relief. I am annoyed that there is no Discrete On/Off functions for my Harmony One remote.

Sorry about your problems, I haven't had them (yet)!
