I'm looking forward to hearing if:
. selecting Dolby TrueHD now results in 5.1 surround sound being fed to optical digital out (it sounds like this is now fixed . .)
- and
. if 4:3 source material is not automatically stretched to 16:9.
Thanks. hhhhdvd

My player isn't updating....... How do you reset the player again? That worked last time....

Nevermind....Firmware via ethernet is not up yet.

I have mine going thru optical and I get 5.1 with TrueHD & DTS-HD now
tested so far: Batman Begins, Day after Tomorrow, Italian Job, Sky Captain, and Sunshine, plus some others

I noticed the audio drop down menu is alittle different as well

I have never had a problem with 4:3 being stretched on old B&W movies
Check your TV, maybe its set to auto wide??

I am happier than a pig in S....... with this update
it even seems to load quicker........

My TV is set correctly (it works perfectly with my upconverting dvd player & hd-dvd player) so maybe I misunderstood the problem. Your report sounds very encouraging! Thanks.
Hmmmm:
- find a BD-UP5000 - and unload my HD-A30, or
- keep the HD-A30 and look for a new model 1500

Samsung doesn't deem this as a problem...I think it will require just a few more complaints (it seems to be gaining some traction as it was acknowledged by a CSR earlier today).

Show me my post where I said this player is garbage? I am not selling it off because of its perceived value to other people. $200-$250??? Yeah, for that, I'd keep it...and I will.

Not exactly garbage but you pretty much wrote it off before May even ended.
