So... anyone else periodically checking the LG support site to see if the new firmware has landed?


I'm looking forward to watching Clerks 2... and curious to see if it implements profile 2.0...

Of course. I hope you're periodically asking your player to dial in and check for updates as well.

Yep, I'm doing that too.


Historically though, haven't the updates been available on their website a few days before there were available through the player?

Do we know if a new firmware will actually be released? Havent seen any mention of new firmware apart from the poster who said he met someone at a show in NYC. Is he the source?

I contacted LG about Clerks 2 not playing on the BH200, and they told me it would be fixed shortly.


Someone in another thread stated that they contacted LG last week because they were having troubles upgrading their firmware and were told that a new firmware was coming potentially by the end of last week.


So, that's 3 different sources... could be any day now, or still a bit off.

How do you do that? Or do you mean you manually check, once in a while?

Correct.


I check every week or so. Now we have the Official Lossless firmware I'm not in a rush so much, but it would be nice.

This might be a dumb question, but I just picked up a BH200 this weekend and was watching Clerks 2 HD-DVD on it last night. I didn't watch the whole thing, but what is the problem with that disc?


(on an unrelated note, I was getting multiple video/audio dropouts like I was loosing HDMI sync with my receiver - denon 3808- on both HD-DVD and BD)

Sorry. "Was" as in I "was" getting them last night as I used the player. I'm sure nothing has changed.

Still nothing. What a drag.


There were rumours of "by the end of last week", but now it's looking like it might not even be the end of this week.


It just goes to show you how relative the word "soon" really is... it means drastically different things to large corporations and impatient consumers.

Screw that. They can take their time. I would rather them get it right. Toshiba just released an update this week that didn't fix what they broke in the last update.

Screw what? I didn't really say anything... I just said "what a drag" and commented on how "soon" is a subjective term...



As for Toshiba, I'm assuming you're referring to the 24fps jaggies they introduced in fw2.8?


I think it's pretty clear they didn't try to fix that in the fw... people have been reporting it since the first day 2.8 was released, so they had time to address it if they wanted to...

"Soon" has to be the most loosely used word ever
.


I'm in no rush to get the new firmware. If it means they fix more, great!

I will even wait much longer if we get Profile 2.0
