Default Firmware Update? Question for Josh?

Can Josh make an article about firmware updates? The majority of BD and HD DVD users have had mixed outcomes with the different firmware upgrades. Some players have been patched and still have issues while others (like my Samsung 1400) are factory settings and it plays the movies flawlessly.

Can he explain the advantages and disadvantages of doing the upgrade via Ethernet connection or ISO file burned to a CD? Does it make any difference? Should we do a firmware update if the player itís working fine?

I can add this to the list of potential future topics. The only problem with this idea, however, is that it requires familiarity with every firmware update for every player on the market.

I did not think about that. You are 100% right. Thank you JZ.

At most, we could have on thread for members to let us know when new update are available on different units.

I just found out that the 2.0 firmware update is out for the Samsung BD-P1200.

That could work. Also we need to know the results after the upgrade and the behavior of the player.
