I tried loading 1.9 and at the end of the firmware verification, the player announced the installation (main) was cancelled! It then proceeded to prompt for the Loader and the other, neither of which changed revision. Naturally, my playback result was unchanged.

I then tried going back to my pre 1.8 firmware -- 1.3 from Nov 19, 2007. It loaded fine and guess what -- no more blocking during the rolling credits.

So both my players are now again on 1.3 and I'm wondering what the problem is with the rev1.9 main, and when they're going to fix the "Planet Of The Apes" rolling credits blocking problem with the more recent firmware (don't know what rev it starts with, only that 1.8 exhibits it !)

I have the Samsung BD-P1000, have had no problems w/ it untill recently.

Rented the new HULK, and X-files. neither of those will play, they just show loading.
Tropical Thunder plays, and so does the new Indiana Jones. But HellboyII and Wanted does not.

They all play on the PS3 at Blockbuster. The player is not hooked to the internet, so I had to download the new Firmware and uploaded it to the player via disc. That worked fine and the firmware is from Oct 08. I noticed that HELLBOYII, WANTED, X-FILES, and TROPICAL THUNDER all are BD-LIVE. Does that cause a problem, cause again TT still works

any advice or info would help

thanks

You need the latest firmware. A new one came out last week.

You probably had a bad burn. Make sure you burn at a speed that's about half of what the max rating is for best results. I had no problems going from the original 2006 factory firmware to 1.9 on my "new" player last week.
post #1745 of 1912
I did that
Ok, with the draw open and pressing info button, here is what I get

LDR: M29F / FRONT 21
PSD: 80225.1
DMN: 060929.01 REGION:0A/01


Is that old or newer?

I burned at X4, don't think it goes any slower than that ! Don't need anything faster for these update CD's -- they're quick anyway, so I always take the side of extreme caution. Still, I can take another shot at it.

Anybody else observe a problem with 1.8 or 1.9 and the "Planet Of The Apes" rolling credits at the end?

I always thought slowest was best, but I have heard that newer CD-Rs rated for high speeds actually aren't designed to be burned that slow. They do better at speeds closer to their rated speed. 50% rated speed is probably the best burn you can get.

Well, well, well, my second burn worked!
I now have:

LDR: T22F/FRONT:21

DMN: 060929.01

installed on the player, but guess what! I get colored blocks during the rolling credits at the end of "The Planet Of The Apes"! Both 1.8 and 1.9 are broken in this respect relative to 1.3!

Can anyone tell me what didn't work on 1.3 that does work on 1.8 or 1.9?

So did i burn it wrong? i went off of Samsungs website

I tried cleaning my BD and no change. I then loaded 1.9 on my other player and got the identical colored blocking during the rolling credit symptom as on the first player. This doesn't occur on either player with 1.3.

Anybody else?

When you load the new firmware CD-R, the player first reports it's verifying system firmware. When it finishes from a successful verify, it tells you the firmware ID (81121.1) and asks if you want to install it. If you select YES, it proceeds with installing all three firmware modules. If you don't see that exact behavior, then there is a problem and the new firmware is not being installed.

I don't have that movie to test. Is that at the beginning of the movie or the end (usually old movies had credits at the beginning but I can't remember)?
post #1754 of 1912
Sweet that we got another FW for this thing!!!
I'm burning the CD-R now.

Some kudos to Samsung! But, it did come a little late for me, I did change out the player in my theater.

I'll be anxious to read results with the new releases for sure.

Rolling credits are always at the end. Credits at the front are treated as a series of titles, they don't roll (or scroll if you prefer).

PS. It doesn't happen with all BD, eg "Total Recall" is fine. So far I've only tried those two BD with 1.8/1.9.

In that case it doesn't sound like a big deal. I'd stick with 1.9 because I think they have fixed a lot of other playback issues that you may run into if you don't.
post #1757 of 1912
All very well in theory, but I'm not yet aware of what works now, but didn't in my previous firmware revision (1.3). The only thing I'm currently certain of is a loss of functionality with a recent release title "The Planet Of The Apes." What are the clearly acknowledged gains? Judging from your response -- you probably don't know either!
post #1758 of 1912
Well the Bond films now work for one.
post #1759 of 1912
Seemless branching issues previously encountered, seemed fixed for me last night.
I was having some oddities with it on Close Encounters in particular.

I retired the player, so that was the only title I checked after updating.

Aha! Please excuse my ignorance, but please tell me what the hdmi problem was with the Bond films -- I just picked up some of those !
post #1761 of 1912
I've tried the 1.9 firmware, clearing the cache, and a few other tricks that have worked with other stubborn discs like pressing stop during the load and hitting the disc menu button... Anyway, nothing seems to work for me on X-Files

No, it's not working on my BD-P1000 either. I'm currently on hold for Samsung to report the issue.

From what I've heard about the new X-Files, you're not missing much.
post #1764 of 1912
Yeah, it's horrible.

I've only seen the one from 10 years ago and I liked it a lot. I'm going to see the new one tonight.

Has anyone gotten the new Futurama Blu-ray to work?

There are no problems using HDMI. Only component.
post #1768 of 1912
Has anyone successfully played "Horton Hears A Who!" via the component output? I updated to v1.9 and still get the "analog output restriction" message.

I have fw 1.8 on the 1000; I am using component and I am getting the same "analog output restriction" on ALL recent Fox releases that I've tried, including:

X-Files
Horton Hears a Who
Space Chimps
The Happening
Meet Dave
Super Troopers
(I haven't tried any of the Planet of the Apes or Bond movies yet)

It seems to me that Fox has decided to activate the prohibition against analog (component) video on all its BDs - I thought there was an agreement between the studios that they wouldn't do that until 2010(?)

I hate Fox

I heard the players were still suppose to play movies if this happend but downconverted. If this isn't so that is a real shaft to early HDTV adopters who do not have HDMI inputs.
