I've had the 5k in the house since the 4th.
Pre FW update, I had a 4 for 4 HD DVD issue, with no BD issues at all.
Post the FW update, 2 seemed to have gone away, one got slightly better and the other was just as bad.
I want the player to do all the best of everything, including sound.
So for now, I'm going to return it to CC for an exchange unit and see what that does. This will give me another player to try and another 30 day window to see what occurs in the FW update stakes.
However, if there are still basic issues (it doesn't play discs without issues) then back it goes and I'll go for the BD30/A35 route.
3 way HDMI splitters can be had for about $50 (better ones for more) and I have room for 2 seperates.
I want to be able to watch a film without audio/visual glitches (another old timer...
). Pluses, like 1.1 and internet connections are nice to have, but let's learn to walk first huh.
I wanted the player to work. It has so much potential, could have been so good.
Samsung, so near, yet so far....
