Well, it happened again. On Tuesday night I watched Kiss of the Dragon. I have a 1080i Samsung DLP (doesn't support 1080p input).
On Wednesday night I hit the eject button on the Samsung, it powers up and spits out the disc. The player continues to boot (my TV still says no signal) and I insert Be Kind Rewind and close the tray.
The tray closes, my screen goes black for a few seconds, and pops up not supported mode. I look at the front panel of the Samsung, and sure enough, it states 1080p output.
So I drag out my AV cables again, hook it up, and check the system setup. Sure enough, under video options, it is set to 1080p/24.
So once again, the system settings have changed automatically to a resolution my TV doesn't support. This is the second time this week that it has done that same thing. All the other firmware settings remain unchanged, except for those two.
My unit is going back today for an exchange. It is either defective, or there is a flaw with the firmware. I reported it to Samsung and naturally they had not heard anything about it. They wanted me to plug and unplug cables and do a bunch of other stupid stuff that has nothing to do with the firmware changing itself.
