Hi Samsung_HD_Tech, do know of any information on this issue? Is there any possibility of a resolution? I really dont want to have to go out and buy a seperate Upconvert DVD player to go along with my Blu-Ray player that is supposed to be able to handle this. Thanks.
Searching through the forums here, I noticed this issue of standard DVD playback (skipping, pixelating about halfway through) was reported in 2009. But I never saw any resolutions. My BD-P4600 began doing this after the 2.09 upgrade. Installing 2.12 hasnt resolved the issue. What I have noticed is that (for me) it seems to start after the dual-layer trigger. Some have reported a lengthy delay during that pause, but what I have seen now, is that this is when the skips, pauses, dead stops, and pixelization begins. Removing the disc, and starting from that point again, will allow me to watch the rest of the film without incident, but this is not what I wanted in a $400.00 BD player. Im out of warranty now Im sure, Ive had this player for a year now. It plays Blu-Ray flawlessly, but Id would like to see this DVD playback issue resolved. Ive called Samsung support to no avail. Ive done all the standard troubleshooting steps, resetting, etc. Is there any new news on this issue? Thanks.
