I am very happy to hear of a new firmware update for the BH100. However, I am concerned about it coming from a megafile download link. I don't think I can expect help from LG customer support if something goes wrong and I tell them I updated the firmware with something on the internet that someone posted on a forum.

It is not that I don't trust you Samsungmaster... your reputation has been well established on this forum. But unfortunately there can be consequences just from not following official channels.

Is there an ETA when this firmware can be found on the official LG support page for the BH100?
post #1356 of 1391
What difference does that make? I'm pretty sure the player is out of warranty now so it's not like you have to worry about voiding it. Plus the update was written by LG. It's not like they have released the source code so only someone who works for LG could update the firmware.

I would like the file, too, please.

Compared to to BH200 at what it will play, sure. But I'd never count on it 100% for my Blu-ray watching need. Right now it's just for HD DVDs and Region B Blu-rays. Just like I wouldn't count on any Blu-ray player made before 2009.

For what it's worth, my Avatar BluRay wouldn't play either. For 5 minutes I had a dark screen and I gave up.

Then I applied samsungmaster's firmware upgrade to by BH100. Now Avatar plays. The machine is a little slow getting going with that disk, but it plays and looks stunning.

Thanks, samsungmaster.

I am guessing you have never had to deal with hyper-controlling hardware vendors before. Apple is one of the worst offenders in this area, and will essentially take revenge upon you if you try to use their devices in any way they have not explicitly approved. I would hope LG is not this bad, but I really don't know.

If LG is a hyper-controlling hardware vendor, in a worst case scenario they could decide to brick this out-of-warranty unit when installing the next officially released firmware if it happens to detect unauthorized firmware currently installed on the unit.

I would hope LG would not be evil as in the scenario above. Their customer support is still pleasant with me as well, which I would also expect to go away if I tell them I installed unauthorized firmware on the unit.

Therefore, I'll wait for official firmware to be released on the official LG support website area for the BH100. This is the safest course of action. I am hopeful that an official release will occur soon.

I've used my first-gen iPhone in a manner probably unapproved. But AT&T still gets paid, so no revenge exacted. Yet.

Just trying to understand samsungmaster's firmware.

LG does not have this firmware on their site and customer service just told me they are aware of the Avatar problem and will send me firmware when available.

Given that LG would have no reason to "sit on" functioning completed firmware, I wonder what samsungmaster's firmware is. The most logical explanation would be that it is beta firmware which may still contain bugs. Assuming this is what it is, if we want to go ahead and try it, does that mean we have to do a factory reset on the device to be able to install the official version when it is released?

TIA

The Apple bashing just gets really old. Let me give you a tip that you obviously have not been able to figure out on your own: if you don't like Apple, don't buy their products. There, I've solved your problem for you so you can stop b!tching.

Dave, I installed it and it works great. i threw a bunch of disc's that did not play before and now they do, X-files and Avatar are two. Also my Non USA region disc's still play so I think its a valid firmware.

Burn the iso with NERO, and you'll see that it works.

Try going to an older firmware and test it. then reload the new firmware again. sometimes that fixes weird problems.

I would like to sincerely thank LG for the latest official Firmware update for the BH100 player. I received my upgraded firmware disc from LG, used it to upgrade my unit, and it resolved all of my current Blu-ray disc issues.

I think many of us had felt that LG abandoned the users of the BH100 with many reported issues and such a long duration since the last firmware update. I'm sure that we are all thankful to see that this was not true, and hopefully this version will prove to be robust against future Blu-ray titles.

Thank you again LG, and please continue your support for this product.
