Firmware 1017 for UNxxB7x00

by warrenbbs / January 12, 2010 2:28 AM PST


I just installed (online, not via USB) the latest firmware for my UN46B7100 TV. Just wondering if anyone knows what the changes might be (from 1016) because I don't see any. In fact, the Samsung website still only has details fo firmware 1013 (a least 2 revisions back now).

FIRMWARE 1017 for Samsung UN55B8000, UNxxBxxxx
by hellchoi / January 12, 2010 7:30 AM PST

my TV automatically installed the new firmware from 1013 to 1017. What I noticed so far is an upgrade to the Widgets. I am checking menu and blooming situation and give a report.

The biggest change I found is in DLNA operation.

If you dont know what that is, it probably doesnt matter to you. In brief: I use a Network Storage device that had movies and music on it and is a DLNA server. The TV accesses the files directly as a DLNA client.

FW 1017 cleaned up a few things that would cause the tv to crash and reboot when playing movies in this way. Also, they added the ability to use thumbnail images when displaying the files... further, they added the ability to display subtitles for a movie file.

Only thing I am still waiting for is DTS compatibility. Right now, everything has to be AC3 and this is just not standard nor as good when playing bluray movies.

Has anyone else found any changes? Would be nice if Samsung told the community *** they were doing. wouldnt it?
