I've been reading here for about a month, but today felt compelled to post.
I have had the BH200 since January 23, 2008, and it is connected via HDMI to the LG 60PY3D. Along with these I am using the Onkyo 705 and Polk Audio speakers. The whole system was installed by a professional (a great local guy - not a hack), not by me, so I am not positive that the video is connected directly to the LG, but I suspect so, based upon some of the behaviors. Sometimes we get video from the BH200 and audio from the cable box thru the Onkyo (strictly user error: one remote, and STILL some family members can't operate it). This is what makes me think the signal goes directly from player to the tv.
On to the reason for my post.I am sorry to report that Samsungmaster's comment that the BH200 is rock solid when connected to an LG tv seems to be untrue.in at least one case! Sorry!
I, too, am experiencing the video dropouts that everyone speaks about; since I've had the system such a short time, I can't say if it would have happened eventually, but I can state that it did not happen at all prior to the Jan. firmware. I'd watched about 40 movies since the getting this player, DVD, HD, and BD, all without issue. Watching Bourne Supremacy on HD DVD recently, suddenly the screen flashed black, twice within a one-second time span, at about 1:26:00. There was no audio loss. It also happened on Stardust (BD). Like everyone else, I rewound, and on replay, the problem was not reproduced in either case.
I updated the firmware (from 1119R) a couple of weeks back in an attempt to solve a different issue (later found to be unrelated to the BH200). The driver has not been updated, and I *think* it is 700, but can't swear to it. I've got 702 now and will likely update it this week.
I don't recall reading about anyone else using an LG display with this player, so I thought I'd weigh in. I had no problems with some of the other "problem" discs referenced elsewhere, but will go back and restest now that I am using Jan FW.
You all have been a fantastic reference for me in the past few weeks, I appreciate the fact that everyone has shared so much detailed information.
