Can you believe in 3 months, it will be 1 year since a firmware update has been released for this player? I’m not complaining but am just saying how amazed I am that a player like this can be so rock solid on every BD that I throw in it (old and new) without any kind of update. When I used to have a Samsung BD-P1600, there were firmware updates issued every 3 or so weeks and problems still kept on happening. It was crazy. And based on what I read, I thought this was normal because of the claims that Blu-ray has never-ending specs and constant DRM changes. I, personally, am happy because it’s very annoying to always update a player. Not only does it take time to do, but you run the risk of damaging your unit. Like if the firmware file you downloaded was corrupted or if you have power outage during update, your player is toast!
