Wow, wierd coincidence. A year to the day since the above quoted post and I finally rented and watched Band of Brothers and experienced the same thing, although I'm connected through HDMI. Have been running firmware v2.4 as it plays everything I've purchaced/rented including my AVCHD discs.
Upgrading to 2.5 not only didn't solve the problem, but stoped playback of my AVCHD discs (that play fine in my Sony S350). So I went here http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...6#post16039436
and downloaded v2.6 (that was briefly available from Samsung and then pulled, anyone know why? And thanks to wobbegong for hosting the files), burned a disc and tried that. Bonus View Audio now works with Band of Brothers, but still no luck with AVCHD. I've noticed no other problems in running v2.6 other than no AVCHD support.
C'mon Samsung! Get your act together and provide a firmware update that makes everything work like it's supposed to! Sony can do it, why not you?
