Yes I do have a Samsung BD-UP5000 player. My only problem with it is, after about 5 or 10 minutes into a movie, whether it be Blu-Ray, HD DVD or regular DVD the picture freezes up and I have to turn it off, power it back up and then the movie plays fine. Other than this problem, the unit produces a beautiful highdef picture. I am hoping Samsung releases a firmware update for this problem soon. I hear some units are affected while others are not.

If you haven't updated your firmware yet, I suggest you do. If you already have I suggest you take it back to the store and get a new one. I have updated and tested over 5 of these and they don't do that. Only on one or two blu-rays, should you have any issues. Sunshine with video and Ratatouille on audio (just pause for a second and unpause fixes the audio) Sunshine will not be easily played until there is a newer firmware update.

There are at least 12 threads on the cross format section. The same one you post this in. It doesn't even take a search!

Check the "The BD-UP5000 is awesome thread."
