You beat me to the post!
I just saw the "software upgrade" page too.
So other things that stood out to me:
* For those that ask if 1080p unscaling DVD player is better than 1080p of the tv -
Compare dvd player's chip specs with these:
Samsung S5H2201X01 (Albatross) HD-TV Audio/Video Decoder
Samsung SDP51 (NR, Film Dectection Processing, "video quality improvement", 10 bit processing)
Samsung SDP52 (MPEG Noise Reduction, Color Transition Improvement, Jagging Remover, etc.)
Samsung TC90103 (3D Comb & Video Decoder, has 3L Comb too)
The manual shows the benefits of the S5H2201+SDP51/52 combination. Do we see it with DNIe though?
Of course some of the above are applied even if an unscaling DVD player outputs 1080p but it or the tv could be better than the other. It is noted in the service manual that these 'chips' are "designed to provide a cost-effective, low power size and high performance ... for HD-TV, SD-TV, STB applications."
* The manual lists the power consumption at 230W and the weight at 79.37lbs. This set seems to get lighter and lighter the a see different weight listings. I'm sure the guys who hauled mine in may disagree.
I know enough about electronics to know I don't know enough to make use of the schematics but disassembly and assembly are straight forward on all the major components.
Still have some abbreviations that I don't know.
