How very odd! I had alread flushed my browser cache (FireFox 3.1 beta) and re-load the page, and also tried FireFox 3.0 as well as IE and saw nothing other than 1.3!

Samsung must have either done some sort of staged roll-out, or they've got multiple web servers serving various regions and the page I was routed to was not updated as quickly as others.

Of course now that I am in to work, I can see 1.4. Time to remote into my home network and at least get it downloaded. I was planning to run back home over lunch, so I'll burn and update at that time.

You have to double click the FW box on the web site and there is Ver 1.4 to download about 28MB.

It's all good, but I don't have any movies that gave me problems. Curious to find what you all notice with this new update. No mention on Samsung website except "playback improvements on some titles". Darn I was hoping for MORE features, hmmmmm like 2.0?

Gene - did you burn the ISO file to CD (i.e. ISO burned as a data file onto the CD), or did you burn the CD 'from' the ISO file.

The reason I ask is most failures are brought about when a user burns the file to CD. ISO files are in fact 'images' or 'snapshots' if you will, of the actual media. That said (and excuse me if you already know this), you need to open the ISO file from the burning software and burn the image to CD.

Alternatively, most bruning applications are associated with ISO files and will recognize them as such. Simply running the ISO file, in most cases, will open your burning application to a dialog box prompting you to 'burn'.

Hope this helps. If anyone can describe the ISO format or method of burning better than I, please feel free to do so.

Did you ever have a chance to start a thread on the HDFury?

No I have not! Thanks for the reminder! I'll see if I can get some photos taken and compose something over the next couple of days.

In short, it works as advertised and I am happy.

Great Spence, whenever you have the time, I will appreciate it. Based on your other posts, I believe we have similar setups, so your review will be very helpful for me. I am especially interested in the SD upscaling results you've had. Thanks again!

Two questions...sorry if noobish...

How do I find what firmware version I have for the BDUP5000?

Does the 1.3 update allow you to play Blu-Ray recordables? I tried playing a burned blu-ray disc that I'd made and this wouldn't play it. The PS3 would.

Thanks!
