Also is there a workable link to firmware downloads? Samsung have just the 2.3 on their site. I'd like the others that were previous.
How can you tell what firmware update you have on your 1400? Ive updated once before (no problems) but forgotten what update it was...
No inconvenience, Planet Penwith.
But I'm not going to be much help. Early 1400 adopter, here. August, 2007.
Knock on wood, but I've never had any BD that wouldn't play that couldn't be helped with a FW update. And I've played close to 300 movies. I might add that I don't rent, however. Every BD disc has been a brand new purchased disc.
Don't know of any site that has a list of movies that don't/won't play on the 1400. I've been reading the various 1400 threads on this and other boards since July, 2007, and movies such as the "Pirates of Carribean" movies, "Drag Me to Hell" (don't own myself but have seen mentioned) and a few other isolated titles seemed always to play after Samsung came through with a FW update.
Of course, "Avatar" was the most recent. FW 2.3 came out because of "Avatar." The previous FW update was 2.1, and audio cutouts and chapter title popups were making people crazy with "Avatar." At least it played on the 1400, albiet not perfectly. On many other players, "Avatar" wouldn't play at all. If you wanted "Avatar" to play perfectly (before the FW 2.3 came out), it was discovered one could re-install FW 1.9. "Avatar" played perfectly on FW 1.9.
But I digress. And there is no list of movies that will not play. As I said, I don't know of one BD movie that won't play on universally on the 1400 with the proper FW 1400 AND if the 1400 in question is in good working order.
No site that I know of that has all previous FW updates. Maybe someone else might know of one. However because most people have moved on to other BD players, this thread is quite "bare" as far as frequent visitors are concerned. Sadly, the "day" of the 1400 is long gone.
And the few of us that are still "hanging in there" haunt these forums like ghosts.
The only way I know of to tell which FW update you currently have is to start the update process. The screen will tell you. Then if you don't want to change, just hit "no" at that point. I keep written records of what date I update my FW and to which version. But that's just me. Very "anal." HA.
Like I said, not much help.
But if I were you, I'd update to FW 2.3. Perhaps you already have done that (came out in early April) and forgot? Then I'd keep written records from now on. Just an idea.
Good luck, fellow 1400 user. - AJ
