The firmware update is taking forever for me. Took a while to download, and its been processing for at least 30 min by now. What should I do? First update I've done on it.
Does it always take a really long time to update?
edit: update i guess I should have been more cautious when updating. I read a lot of reviews and stuff that mentioned this issue. I took the disc out before lik erecommended, but its now been going for well over 1.5 hrs at this point. And not downloading, the processing.
Is it bricked. I just bought it yesterday, so I can just return it I guess. But what do I do when I want to update that new one?
edit: after 4 hours I decided to pull the plug with the intention of boxing it up and returning it to frys. Well I plugged it back in and it works perfectly, what the hell. Gah...glad it works but so annoying.

To get my connection on the bluray I used the old trick of sharing my macbooks wifi with the 1600, same way i did it with my 360 before I converted an old router with DD-WRT to use for that function. Anyways the quality is great, SD stuff palys perfectly, takes a bit to load, but I was getting about 60% on the quality bars. Clearer than both my macbook on the TV and my 360. And my router is about 100+ feet away in another corner of the house, so I say go for the trial at least, I am very pleased with this player aside from the firmware ********. So I can say 1.5mbps connection is fine for netflix. It makes me want to upgrade my connection speed even more now to get HD content.
