A new firmware is being tested right now and could be out as early as Friday. You should call 1-800-Samsung on Monday or you can go to samsung.com.
Congrats on your 1500 purchase. I got some interesting news for you. We will be launching a microsite specifically for Samsung Blu-Ray owners or potential owners in the near future. We are calling it the Samsung Blu-Ray Resource Center and it will have information like Firmware Updates or tips on how to optimize your player. I'll let you know when it's up.
Thanks for the purchase.
I own the new BluRay BD-P1500. I've noticed intermittant audio drops while playing a couple of the BDs. Do you have any information as to when a new firmware upgrade will be coming out? And what fixes will be addressed with the upgrade?
