HT-BD2T Mad Men Season Two Blu-ray Disc Problems

by TVExpert / August 5, 2009 2:31 AM PDT

I have the HT-BD2T and love the system. It has played every Blu-ray I have used (over 35 titles) except Mad Men Season Two. The discs will load and then freeze the first 2-3 seconds or just continue to load indefinitely. The stop and eject commands will not work and I have to shut down and restart the unit to be able to command the disc again. I have firmware 1.4 installed, have replaced Mad Men Season Two with other copies including one directly from from Lionsgate. Is the problem Java related, will there be another firmware update and why won't the discs load?

Thanks, any suggestions for a way to get discs to play? Firmware maybe?

TVExpert,

I'm thinking if you turn of the BD-Live features, it may load. Just a shot in the dark until I can look into it more...

No BD Live support

If I could, I would. This is a 1.0 Blu-ray player with no BD Live support. If there is a option for the HT-BD2T, I'd appreciate it.

Same problem

I am having the same problem with my Samsung BD-P1600 and the Mad Men Season 2 disk. I watched two episodes, did the firmware update this weekend, and now it gets stuck at the menus. Netflix says they see this all the time. I sent a message to Samsung to tell them.

Problem continues on BDP-3600

Mad Men Season Two Discs #1 and #2 get to the menu screen, then don't display a menu to select an episode. They just loop with the menu background and no way to get an episode to play.

Hopefully, this will be resolved soon.

Mad Men

My Season 1 Mad Men works great, I had problems with Season 2 and exchanged tham so many times I gave up. I have not yet even put my latest copies of Mad Men Season 2 in the Blu-ray player.

Finally Fixed

I just received and installed Firmware 1.6 from Samsung and I believe it did the trick, Mad Men Season 2 finally plays normally.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
