Can anyone give me a hand and help me figure out how to get the firmware updated? Maybe im missing something. Thanks!

Try doing it over an ethernet cable, not wireless.

I had the same problem with not getting 3D from my STB, and then my 670 when swapping HDMI cables. Even though both were identical and came with the TV, the problem followed the "Bad" HDMI cable.

Thats what I did, I skipped a chapter or two, rewound it a little. Everything works perfectly.

I looked inside my bluray player. The main video chip/CPU has a simple heat sink over it (sort of a wide U), there were a couple of Samsung chips and a Toshiba chip visible past the power supply. I didn't bother taking the heat sink off, and the total area of the boards (one for the power supply, and the other for the main decoding and whatnot) is probably 30% smaller than my two year old Samsung BluRay.

On the Samsung BD-P1600, the drive was on the left (drive was totally enclosed), and a single board took up the rest of the space, the LG BD630, there are no boards to the left side of the drive.

Why are companies never consistent on the type of chip they use on their products?

I have a 16GB Mbps internet connection, and have tried wiring the unit directly into my router with no improvement over wireless. I have a Roku which always streams Amazon at full HD wired into the same router, so I know for sure that the problem is not my internet connection. Also the 670 appears to always stream Netflix at full HD so it would seem that the problem with my particular unit is with Amazon only.

I find it very strange that Netflix streams properly but not Amazon, It would seem the problem is a software glitch rather than a hardware problem.

I have my BD670 connected via Wi-fi and The connection varies from two to four bars. Seems to start at two, then increase as the video plays. Picture quality is okay. Seems to be compressed fairly heavily, but i'm not getting drop outs or anything like that. The quality does not seem to be any different when i'm getting two, three or four bars. My biggest complaint would be that I am not getting surround sound and the audio sounds like the bit rate is very low. Lack of surround must be a software limitation of some sort. I read a review comparing Roku, Panasonic and LG Amazon VOD implementations and only the Roku had 5.1 audio. Hopefully this will be addressed in a future update.

I tried and got the same result. The firmware is very old too.

I have since tried out my free Vudu Movie and it streamed full HD, the PQ was excellent. I have since watched several more Netflix movies which looked to be full streaming. (Wierd that the LG Netflix App. shows no streaming dots or bars.) I still have not been able to get Amazon past 2 dots, the quality is definitely substandard SD.

As before Amazon will not stream for me past 2 dots which gives me a rather lousy substandard SD signal. For the heck of it I rented my free Vudu movie, and it streamed full HD with really excellent PQ.
Since Netflix and Vudu stream well, the Amazon streaming problem must be the result of poor software implementation with the LG.

Best regards, maris
Maris, have you told this to LG or are you aware if they are aware of this? One reason I am reluctant to take back my BD670 and buy another LG model is because I don't want to "reward" LG for putting out a bad player. If they are aware of this stutter problem they should RECALL all the bad units and ship us new ones, or at the very least give us some kind of discount on the 250gig HD model or something of that nature...

By the way does the model with the built in hard drive play all the same files and work just as well as the BD670 but WITHOUT any errors in playing dvd's or anything else? I heard the hard drive model (not sure of the #) does *NOT* have the dvd stutter problem...

Admittedly this is one of those posts where I just don't have time to research this right now and am hoping some kind member with the info will answer it for me so I don't have to do the research.

Since I have the BD670 with the dvd audio drop out problem, and I absolutely cannot stand watching dvd's with this error, I am contemplating what to do when I return this unit to Best Buy.

Therefore I would like your opinions on what I should do and why.

My priorities:
a) DVD and BluRay playback must be without error for 99.99% of playback on these 2 formats
b) it must play store bought cd's, my own cd-r copies of cd's from images or ripped from cd's, and cd-r's with mp3's on them
c) it must provide at least Netflix OR Blockbuster (preferably both but if it's just one I prefer Netflix)
d) it must play AVI's and mp3's and .wav's from a USB thumb or external hard drive (if it plays more like .flv's and .mkv's and .wmv's that's great but the above are the most important

Now, one big question I have is: Do I buy a ROKU and a cheap blu-ray player? Is ROKU better than most of the blu-ray players in terms of accessing Netflix and Pandora etc.?

Do any of the cheap ($100 or so) blu-ray players play files like .avi's from usb?

ROKU claims to play playlists from iTunes. Is that via streaming from my computer or via some premium service??

Thanks for any answers to these questions. I thought about starting a new thread but I figured you guys know what the LG models do and how it compares to others, so since I am returning the LG it made sense (to me, anyway) to put my questions here.

I take it you get a much higher quality stream from Amazon when you watch the same content on your Roku then?

I think the BD630 is solid player. It's been a real champ for me. Coupled with my Apple TV, they do EVERYTHING I need as far as media entertainment. Apple TV is awesome for Netflix because it allows you to edit your queue, which most blu-ray players do not.

Roku doesn't have Blockbuster, but they have Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and a ton of smaller apps. These type of streaming services are really what Roku is all about. I've never used a Roku with the USB port, but based on what I've read it's much more limited than you'll get with the BD670. It won't play avi files, mpeg2 or allow you to select from multiple audio streams. It supports MLB, mp4 and mov all with h.264 and wmv/ASF. That's about it.

If the DVD issue is your primary concern, you might think about just buying a cheap DVD player to player your DVD discs. I think you can get a decent machine with HDMI out for $30 or $40.

I'm simply not willing to keep the BD670 which is a defective unit. Even though it does great with playing files from USB and it does "okay" with streaming Netflix and it does very well with Pandora.

At this point I am leaning towards the BD630 - if it plays avi's etc ; I have to check - and a ROKU which most people seem to say does an excellent job with Netflix which is my primary service for streaming content.

The BD670 has other issues in addition to the dvd playback problem:
It has a completely ridiculously bad youtube interface (even though youtube doesn't matter to me, it boggles my mind that LG engineers came up with something so lame). Netflix gets "stuck" sometimes and won't load, and the 670 has to be re-booted for Netflix to load (this is reported by several others, not just me). And from what I read the ROKU does a better job of streaming Netflix.

One more dumb question:

Does the 670 enable me (via software or ?) to wirelessly play music and video files from my computer hard drive? I have never looked into this. Is that what DLNA (?) is about...? And as I understand it this 670 is DLNA certified but I'm not sure my computer is, and what this means to me in terms of possibly streaming content from my computer which sits across the room from my tv/stereo.

The 630 plays AVI files quite well, even playing the multi channel audio that some have.

Did a few tests. It does play mkv files depending on the codec used, same goes with AVI and MP4.

I found that this player will not play any Divx codec (3-5), it will play AVC and Xvid video codes, pretty sure it will play h264. It will play AAC, MP3 and possibly AC3 audio codecs.

It will play a video if the audio isn't a supported codec, but it can freeze up the unit. I did that pressing the fast foward button. It froze up, but kept playing the video. I had to unplug it to get to work again.

The manual does say it will play the following for videos:
File extensions: *.avi, *.mpg, *.mpeg, *.mkv, *.mp4, *.asf, *.wmv, *.m4v (DRM free)
Video codecs: Xvid, Mpeg1 SS, H.264, Mpeg 4 AVC, Mpeg 2 PS, Mpeg 2 TS
Audio codecs: DD, DTS, Mp3, wma, AAC, AC3

The Roku PQ is definitely better than the LG when streaming Amazon. In your previous post you mentioned that with your LG the video improved with time. I had never ran a video for more than a few minutes at a time, so I loaded up Dexter from my Amazon queue and sure enough after about 4 or 5 minutes the PQ improved markedly and when I checked again I had a full 4 dot stream. The PQ was pretty good, but more compressed looking than my Roku. The Roku loads up to a 4 dot HD setting before the video runs.
If I watch a HD Trailer on Amazon with the LG I have bad PQ from start to finish. With the Roku I have HD all the way. The LQ PQ seems to be about the same as the Roku on Netflix, and the Vudu looks excellent also. The Roku does not have VUDU. I have not tried more than 8 or 10 minutes of solid streaming with Amazon on the 670, maybe if I ran stuck it out longer the picture would improve some more??

Yes, DLNA allows you to play back content on your computer via the network. This can be accomplished with the BD670 by running a DLNA server application on your computer such as the Nero software that came with the player or using the file sharing capabilities built into Windows and Mac OS.

Some notes about the BD630:
It does not have wireless built in, so to connect the player wirelessly you need to separately purchase a USB adapter. The player only has one USB jack so you won't be able to use wireless and USB media simultaneously (well, possibly with a USB hub, but I'm not certain if that will work...)

Also as you probably noticed, the BD630 does not support DLNA like the BD670.

Just got an update for my LHB536 - update .308.E

The audio glitch is now... 99% gone. lol

It's only doing it during chapters 2 and 3 of my test disk, and it's only doing it for a split second now. So... they're getting there. I hope they just realize it's not 100% fixed and keep working on it so that they can go back to providing us with a Premium apps update with a less buggy Netflix interface and something like the old YouTube app again. ;-)

There is a new update available for the BD670 as well: SW Version: BD.8.62.296.E

I installed it this morning directly via the player over my Wi-Fi network. This update is not available for download on the US LG.com Web site as of this writing.

I haven't had much chance to use the player under the new update, but I can confirm that I am still experience the brief audio drop out after chapter change on at least one DVD disc that I tested. I also tested a Blu-Ray disc and did not see the issue (which was expected since this has not been a problem on my player before). Premium app line-up had not changed as of this morning. I noticed some new apps in the LG app store such as a Nasa app and channel with content geared towards Mac, iPhone and iPad users, but I doubt the new channels are related to the update, I hadn't looked in the store for awhile prior to installing the update.

Perhaps this update is designed to address compatibility with specific discs and/or to fix some of the issues people have had with players getting in a corrupted state where they need to be powered off. I haven't been seeing any such issues myself, so I can't confirm. Hopefully LG will post some release notes once they make this update available on their Web site for download.

kusanagi-sama thanks for the info re the 630. Now the fact that it is not DLNA brings in another issue for me... Arrggghh!

The fact that LG just came out with a new firmware but STILL did not fix this problem is maddening!

Where do you get the new firmware update if not from LG?

Also, how do you contact someone at LG who really KNOWS about this issue as opposed to a lowly phone answerer who knows nothing like I got when I called their tech line?

You get it from LG via the update function on the player available on the settings screen (via a network connection). I was just noting that the update is not available for download on their web site (which means it can't be copied to a flash drive or optical media for installing). The updates usually become available on the players directly before appearing on the site for download.

Anyway, I'm sure it will be fixed the next time a Premium update comes, but who knows when that will be - so I wonder if there is a way to force the player to re-download the update.

For anyone who cares, I will update you on this:

So, after getting a picture of my friend’s LG LHB536 setup (running the latest firmware – 308.E), I now see that my Premium update was not corrupted – but rather – I was given access to an update that I should not have been given access to. I have some pictures to prove it. As you can see, my friend has the correct Premium apps, with the right sizes, and his "I-play TV" app has "BETA" written under it, as it should. Mine lacks "BETA." Also, we have different YouTube icons. And of course, I have some oversized icons (the CinemaNOW and Amazon icons are oversized too – and we have different NBA icons). Just thought I would give you guys a couple of quick pics of this.

I have no idea why I got this update and nobody else that I know did, but whatever. I’m sure it will be fixed soon. Please click the "Show" button to see the pics.

I upgraded the firmware to the latest version on the 670 (BD.8.62.296.E).

It seems like the upconversion was taken out in this version. Is this possible?!

Watching the same DVD or AVI files are more pixelated than last time I viewed them.....
post #687 of 2320
IMHO, LG puts the sharpening settings way too high by default. Perhaps the firmware upgrade you installed changed the settings back to default, or perhaps even maxed them out. I like my sharpness around -2 for best results. See if this helps. It's more obvious on standard DVDs and less obvious on BD.

Can someone recommend to me a cheap or free software that will do what Nero MediaHome 4 does (stream my music and movie files to my BD670) but better?

By better I mean maybe the ability to have playlists or have the pictures of the cd's appear as opposed to just having Folders with names... ? Is there any such thing that will interface with the 670 and allow iTunes or something like iTunes? (i.e. a music player)?

Using the Windows Media Player 12 server (the Homegroup server built-in to Windows 7) allows playlists and shows cover art when streaming from your network. If you don't have Windows 7... Does anybody know if TVersity works with this player? Don't see why it wouldn't.

Does any one who installed the new firmware (BD.8.62.296.E) know if that corrected the audio drops at chapter changes?
