You just spend 200 bucks on a 1600? Where did you buy it? I didn't even think it was still available. Why didn't you buy a BD5500. it plays Netflix and it's only 129 bucks at Bestbuy and a few other places.
I agree that the 1600 plays netflix in the US but not Canada is ridiculous but if you just purchased that machine take it back and get the right one for less.
I just got off the phone to Netflix and "Jason" says that Samsung hasn't been asking for any Netflix Firmware Upgrades for "older" Samsung Players such a my BD-P1600. (For Canada!!)
They are available for newer Samsung Players though.
I just cancelled my subscription to Netflix and will wait until the firmware for the Samsung becomes available. He says it's OK on the newer C series Blu-Ray players from Samsung. Since I just spent $200.00 on this one I'm not prepared to purchase another one.... especially from Samsung.
Question for our Samsung Tech.
With the newest firmware 2.15 I am now able to view Youtube without a hitch. My only question I have now is.... Ever since I opened the box last week I've been unable to play any DVD or Blu-Ray movies on the BD-P1600. It says "Unable to play this disk"
Is there any quick fix or combination of keys to press to reset or allow me to play these disks. (Maybe drop it on it's side or something :)) )
I've already tried the reset keys (fastforward keys) but it doesn't do anything. If I have to return the BD-P1600 for repair it's not worthwhile and I can't afford it.
Thanks for listening
