Yeah...May 6th is asking a little too much for Samsung to be ready with the long over due firmware upgrade.

Someone spoke to a tier 2 tech today who mentioned this update only effing provides 1.1 compatibility and not the HD audio update. Also, there's corroborative evidence that Samsung never considered TrueHD 2.0 output a "problem" and are only providing a fix due to all the complaints. After hearing this plus the pricing for the new Panasonic, I wouldn't give an eff if the BDA and Blu-ray all come tumbling down.

Picture is excellent, plays most everything thrown at it. It simply needs a firmware update for the chipset in its current form.

Its suppose to be the same chip as whats inside the second gen LG and it has the firmware for the codecs in 7.1. However, there are still a few problems so maybe samsung is working out the details before officially releasing...

Whats more important?? Getting a half-assed patch out that ruins more things than it fixes, or waiting a bit longer for them to get it right? I agree that we've waited long enough, but a little while longer wont kill us.
