I was able to successfully burn a the disc image on my Mac using Toast 8.0.3... it was a simple task...
dragged the disc ISO onto the Toast icon and then simply burned the CD-R. I haven't tried using Disk
Utility that comes with OS X Leopard as of yet.
Hey, I just downloaded the newest firmware upgrade of 1.5 on 01/25/08 and installed it on my BD-P1400. The player didn't operate correctly and the install didn't go as normal although it said it said it worked. I placed the burned ISO disc in the tray and it did it's thing and then ejected the disc and kept on doing it's thing. Then it powered off. I powered it back on and it took forever to get to the 'set language' part. The remote control also did not operate the player at all. I had to remove the batteries from the remote and hold down some buttons for several minutes to drain the microprocessor and then replace the batteries. The remote then worked again. Damn! These things get funkier with each upgrade. I spoke to a guy at Samsung before this upgrade came out. He said that the new Die Hard and Pirates discs would not play at all in the BD-P1400 until this upgrade. I own neither of those discs so I would like to hear from somone who does and see if this is true. So far, the only disc that has given me problems is '3:10 to Yuma'. It plays but has a hell of a load time.
We have had a BD-P1400 since November. We have now got 32 DBs (28 UK and 4 US). The machine has played every disc absolutely faultlessly since day one. We did install firmware update 1.1 (via DVD-RW) as many of our discs had DTS-HD Master Audio. Suffice to say that we now see DTS-HD Multi CH appear on the discs with this type of audio.
Indeed, we have the UK version of Rush Hour 3, which has picture in picture. This like all other discs and extras plays faultlessly.
Load times, particularly newer Fox titles can be very slow. We're reluctant to do anything about that, if if gives us playback problems.
We have Die Hard 4.0 and Fantastic Four: Silver Surfer. We have heard they are problem discs, but alas we have had no playback issues whatsoever. Luck of the draw I suppose, or maybe the UK versions of discs and players are different? If so, why?
We do have the output set to 1080p/60hz as there was some minor jerkiness on some discs (not camera pans). Using 60hz this has totally gone! Die Hard 2 in the airport was a good example of this!
I tried watching The Fifth Element on this the other night, I had to power off the player half way through as the audio started dropping out, then the picture started to drop out. When are they going to fix this issue? the same thing happened with Black Hawk Down, but Close Encounters of the Third Kind played fine.
Before I downloaded firmware 1.5, I was still able to play POTC3:AWE. The only difference I noticed was the main menu systems on Disc 1 and 2 looked different and I was able to maneuver faster on the icons of the Interactive "Enter the maelstrom" feature on disc 2.
I wish they could update our players so it can play Picture-in-picture bonus features included in recent BD titles such as Resident Evil: Extinction.
I've just updated to ver 1.8, however, both my newly purchased DVDs Iron Man and Indiana Jones don't play. Am I doing something wrong? Can somebody help? Are there any other settings that I need to change
My player worked flawlessly out of the box. Then I went and upgraded the firmware to the latest version from the Samsung website (version 1.9). Now blu-ray discs that used to work freeze up or are jumping, and the majority of discs I rent now won't even play. I guess there's no way to back out of an update, huh?
Before I fling my Blu-ray player in the Thames: has anyone actually got this thing to upgrade
successfully so it can actually play all Blu-rays?
Couldn't get it to play Taken (flashing lights then dead) so tried the upgrade CD (burnt on a Mac,
the manual didn't say PC-only but then the manual doesn't say much) which it didn't recognise.
Tried burning a DVD and that didn't work.
Then tried connecting it to the internet for an online upgrade, and it wouldn't connect. Even telling
it my IP address didn't make it any the wiser.
Any ideas? Is it me, or should Samsung be ashamed to sell, for hundreds of pounds, this half-
functioning piece of junk?
Hey people! I bouth Terminator 2, Skynet Edition and I put it on my Blu-ray, a Sumsung BD-P1400. It didn't work ... I made the fireware update and it still doesn't work. Does someone know what happens with this new edition? Or to my blu-ray? Thank you!
I've had an issue playing Wall-e with this system. The movie would start off fine, but as it went on it would start choking. I was hoping the latest firmware update it would be fixed but no such luck. Anybody else have this issue?
Not only does my t2 not work im finding lots of blu rays are not working. including underworld 3, now zack and miri, plus the last four netflix i got in the mail. i think im finished with samsung players. looking into the LG bdp390. i will stick with their tv's but their players blow.
I love how Samsung has not posted a new firmware for this product since December 2008, I guess this means they're not going fix ongoing problems concerning older models and let consumers' frustration persist. I have recently contacted them regarding the T2 Skynet Edition. The only reply I received is that they currently have no update at this time. Thanks for the vague response on the matter, this is the last time I buy a Samsung product.
