Being stuck with a Blu-ray player that couldn't handle what is (probably
) the most popular movie on the format of all-time
sounds like a bit of a problem, which Samsung has moved quickly to resolve with firmware updates for its BD-UP5000
(to version 1.5) and BD-P1400
(to version 2.13) Blu-ray players. Forum reports indicate all is well on Pandora once users have upgraded to the new versions with no lingering BD+ DRM issues getting in their way. Of course, the question of why legitimate buyers had to wait several days just to play a movie that was still ripped and redistributed without copy protection as soon as it launched remains unanswered. So is anyone else still having Avatar
playback problems, or is all well in your high bitrate neck of the woods?
