I'm not trying to be a snot, but if you want help I suggest you actually state what "is not working" and clarify what help you are looking for beyond reading the manual to find out how to download an update and trying that first.

Unfortunately, what you bought is a home theater system that includes a standard DVD player. What you need is an HD DVD player. For example, a Toshiba HD-A3. You look like you're from Europe. The European model number for the HD-A3 is a little different and I forget exactly what it is. I think it's HD-E1 or something.

You need one of these:

(Or the HD-A30 or HD-A35)

Actually, to add on to sino's post above:

With the exception of the new BD-UP5000 combo player, Samsung doesn't have any other products that will play an HD DVD. Their other models play Blu-ray only.

So there is no con... you simply made a very uneducated purchase.
