BD-UP5000 1.6 freezes?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi,

Hopefully no-one will mind me breaking this into a separate thread...

A few people (myself included) are seeing freezes with 1.6 (I've had it happen a few times while watching Lost Season 2 and maybe Season 1 as well, can't remember exactly.)

In my case(s), I rebooted my machine, scanned to the scene in question, re-watched the spot it previously froze at and continued without any problems... so, I'm inclined to think it's not a disc problem. Also, I've never had *any* freezes prior to this, so again, that makes me suspect the firmware (I know it's not conclusive, but since others are reporting similar behaviour, I'm thinking it's not just my player).

If you're having freezing problems, please respond here so we can get an idea of whether we have a widespread problem or not...

Cheers,
Stuart

I watched Sherlock Holmes the other night and there was maybe 2 really brief screen pauses.

Might just be a co-incidence, but since I rolled back to 1.4, I haven't had any freezes...

I wondered this to. I also get freezes on f/w 1.6. Like the op i get it freezing but then is fine playing again at the same scene when rebooted, nothing unfreezes it unless turning on and off slightly annoying. Only seems to freeze for me on hd dvds. I imported
Mine as im in the uk.

Can someone post a direct link to this 1.6 update page? I tried Samsung's page and can't find it.

Cool, thanks. So, is the general consensus that this should be downloaded or skipped? I haven't been seeing problems with my current version.
