Yes, I have contacted Samsung and they said they issued a fw. I tried to download, but it turned out they were refering to the so far only fw they have released 2007-05-19 BUT it also says 'build date 2007-07-24' which could mean the update has been updated itself. Now, the problem is that when trying to download the upgrade through the P1200s ethernet connection, it won't recognize it as a new firmware or new build. It says I already have installed it and there's no need to upgrade. I downloaded the fw and burnt it onto a CD, and upgraded the P1200 that way and the player accepted the upgrade.
When I tried the Weeds disc it worked - BUT, when I tried the second disc it didn't work. I then went back and tried the first disc again and it did NOT work anymore at all!! So, all the fw did was to restore the problem to square one.
The menus on both seasons of Weeds are really slow and jerky too, much smoother and faster on the PS3 for some reason.
I contacted Samsung again and got a pretty fast reply saying it might be wrong with my player, but they were not sure. Somehow I doubt it since everything else works and several other users experience exactly the same problem on this title.
Please contact Samsung as well and make them aware of this problem too.
