I have confirmation that Avatar will not (currently) play on the Samsung BD-UP5000. My friend receives a red screen with a message stating that the movie will not play without an update to the player, and then urges him to contact his player's manufacturer. He is concerned as he has never had this issue, and fears (given the discontinued status of his player) that Samsung will hang him out to dry.
