BD-C5500 won't play some mkv files after update

by brun0lm / April 2, 2011 2:47 AM PDT

Hi there,

After I updated my BD-C5500 it stopped playing some of my mkv files, I would like to know if it's possible to downgrade the firmware version to the one I had before the update.

Old version was 1.009.1
Actual version: 1.020.1

Thank you.

This one has folk re-encoding content to work with the changes. So far, samsung has yet to re-issue after an update breaks some coded content.

I don't have prior firmwares available to distribute, sorry.
