Hi there,

 

I am the (not so) proud owner of a BD-C6900 aswell, and have been experiencing quite a lot of problems with it.

Last week i bought The Hobbit 3d Blu-ray and tried to play it on the blu-ray player. After about 10-20 seconds the blu-ray disk would be rejected saying saying it has unknown specifications. The blu-ray came with an non-3D disk aswell and the player IS able to play that one, so thats kinda wierd.

I got the 1025 firmware update aswell, and I am suspecting the player just doesnt know the type of 3d blu-ray which "The Hobbit" is burned on.

 

So i got in contact with Samsung, which didnt help at all, cause they would just say, update your firmware (even though I said in my mail I alreaddy have the 1025 firmware update).

 

Does anyone know if this really is a firmware error, and if yes, is samsung even working on this?

 

Btw, I am able to play a blu-ray 3d disk from a couple of years ago (how to train you dragon) which works quite alright. So it really seems its only with new 3d blu-rays of last year.

 

Thanks for your time.

I just got this from my office, it was in the "Junk" pile. ("Junk" cause we have deep pockets not cause it is old or doesn't work") I updated to the latest firmware all seems to be fine with mine. I did have a Samsung BD-E5900 prior and will keep that close by incase this doesn't work with newer disk but all seems fine thus far. I have the Hobbit EE 3D and will be checking it out shortly to see if I have issues like mentioned above.

All seems good after a day of test with other disk.

Yes I am using this as my primary Blu ray player. I know the Samsung BD-E5900 is newer but when i picked this up at work it had weight to to and it is just a better preforming player IMO. I tested it with a lot of movies last night all worked even my Planet Earth import which is a picky disk, it only works on Sammy and one other brand for some reason even though its region free.

You should be safe, but one question is the online features still active on this model i know Sammy uses the Smart Hub nowadays does this old legacy app center work?

Mine is update with the latest firmware version available today (1.025). No Cinavia at all. Internet@TV is working fine. Some apps are maintained up-to-date by developers, although no new apps are being added to Samsung Store. It works pretty fine with my NAS (Synology DS214) through DLNA. Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray and DVDs are playing fine for me.

This is a very good player even today and it has features that will not be available in any new model (video component and no Cinavia). Some online retailers still have brand new units, although these units are being marketed with exorbitant prices due to its features.

This is still my daily driver... Very satisfied overrall...

Hi everyone,

I have a question about the subtitles from srt files when playing mkv's. I haven't been able to find anything about it yet so I'll ask it here.

It's great that the 6900 is able to run these subtitles when you want them, but is there also a way to turn them off? The subtitle button on the remote gives an error "this option is not available" and I can't seem to find any related settings.
Any ideas?
