Default Specs for Samsung dual player

Does anyone have a link that shows the official specs for the Samsung dual player that's coming out later this year? Or have they even released the specs yet?

Nothing has really been released yet about the player. What has been mentioned is that it will be both iHD and BD-J 1.1 compliant and will have all the built in decoding for the new audio codecs. What else was mentioned was that it would have the 1080 @ 24p output for BD only. This all was stated in a French article and said it would be released in July which we know is wrong because the Samsung press release said it would be released towards the end of this year. So I dont know how acurate this article really was. The article also said that it would not contain an Reon HQV video processor for DVD upconversion.

What's with all of the dual formats giving HD DVD the sh*t end of the deal?

The question is will it still be supporting 1080 60p on the HD DVD side, or are we going to be stuck with 1080i?

Everything is stating its 1080p @ 60 output for HD-DVD. But I am sure they will offer a firmware update for the 24p. If the machine can do it for Blu-ray, I am sure it can handle the HD later on if not right away.

Just saw on Heise.de that Samsung delivers their BDP-UP 5000 in October or November to the German Market.

Price seems to be 400 higher than your average BR-Player.

Only a couple links out on the web about this at the moment.

But it's still nice to see some kind of announcement.
I believe Samsung is holding their "Samsung 2007 Holiday in July Product Showcase" on July 11 and 12 in New York City. More details will most likely come out then.

I prefer Warner's TotalHD solution more than this, but more choice is always good and it will allow people to buy into HD with a lower level of risk.

Hopefully these players will drop in price fairly quickly.

This is great news for anybody who just HAS to have Pirates and the Matrix, but only has room for one input on the back of their TV, and doesn't want to have to buy a "signal switcher". Personally, I would prefer one player that can "do it all". Less wires to worry about. Less remotes laying around, and less buttons to push.
I sure hope it's reasonalbly priced. I am guessing on $900+.
But if it's successfull, it should drop it's price in time.
Personally I'm just happy to hear something about it. I was somewhat convinced that Samsung had given up on this project.

I will definitely consider this player to replace my current ones (HD-A1 and PS3). especially once the prices go down. Though I am also interested in seeing what Onkyo comes out with since historically I have been an Onkyo fan.

And who knows what else might end up getting announced.

I'm loving my new A2 just fine. I'll wait until next year for an upgrade.
