I personally sense both companies are near ready on their latest firmware release. I'll give them the benifit of doubt for a few weeks.

This is good to hear - I hadn't seen any of that.
I like Samsung equipment a lot and hope that they will indeed offer an update like LG.
However, my simple statement has been that the LG seems the better unit "at this time". My other point was that if Samsung does ineed intend to add this functionality to their player, now would be a very GOOD time to let those intentions be known, since the focus has turned more accutely to the matter since the LG update.
I have a Samsung 4695 LCD that wasoverscanning 1080p content, and when it became an issue, Samsung brought out the "Just Scan" fix for it pretty quickly, so I was certainly impressed with their support there. Partly as a result of that support, I now own a 4661 Samsung LCD, also, and it has been fantastic (a better unit than the 4695).
Perhaps my comments here should not be seen as a negative, but as "encouragement" for Samsung regarding a possible UP5000 update.
