Everything was fine and dandy until I upgraded to v2.0 firmware. The latest version screws up the component outputs. Yes, I'm using component outs while waiting for a 1080p LCD.
Does anyone have the v1.3 image? Samsung's website only has v2.0 now.
Thanks in advance!
Update. All is "well" now. I'm even back up to v2.0. The problem is with Samsung's actual blue splash screen/menu. When I set the display to output 480i, things were fine. It was after powering the player off that things went south. When powering back on, the black screen of death appeared. I had to change modes to 480p or something else, THEN go back to 480i in order to resolve. However, when the black screen appears, putting in a disc somehow forced it to remember that I had selected 480i. At the end of the day, I'm a happy camper since I know how to alleviate the problem until I get the 1080p LCD in a few wks.
Also, ran into another little annoyance... the manual says (complete w/ pic) the IR receiver window is right next to the Eject button. Was baffled as to why my IR emitter wasn't "working" to control the unit. Turns out the window is really between the display and the transport buttons!!! I had searched this thread as well as Googled the heck out of this before just moving the emitter around until finding out where it really was...
