Yup.

That's right. It's been discussed at length as well as workarounds and pleas to it's maker to add such. It's not a format issue but what formats work over each interface.

Some want to know what's going on and I have yet to write at length because some get a little uppity about it. There are patents about playing this or that over this or that interface. Not that there is no technical reason but there are legal ones.

thanks

Thanks Bob for your answer!
Do you know if there is a hack version of the Samsung OS to bypass these legal reasons ?

Sorry no.

The only hack I know of is to use other players like Apple TV, Roku, Boxbee, PCs, 360s, PS3s and so on.
