Hmmm... looks like it has now dropped on down to $389. Getting more and more tempting. Instead of buying the 5000 combo... this is looking like a cheaper way out for me to get Blu-ray in the house.

Did you ever buy one of these, Sonnie? I picked one up a couple of weeks ago, and have been pleased with it. I've applied the latest firmware so it can stream Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD MA out to my Onkyo 705 via HDMI. Awesome! I haven't had the freezing/skipping issues with SD DVDs that some have reported on other forums, either. So far, so good...:bigsmile:

I've been thinking about one of these too. My receiver doesn't have HDMI neither does my TV. I could get a switcher for the TV and go HDMI to DVI for both HD players but what would I do about my receiver? It only has one set of 5.1 analog inputs. I didn't notice does the Sammy have fiber optic and if so what kind of sound would I get?

My local Costco has this player for a very good price. I have been trying to decide between this and the PS3.

Nice deal but I still cant buy one as I'm in Canada. I get the lovely "We can not ship to your location" message!
Sigh:dontknow:

No, I have no relatives or friends in the US. I find that it gets complicated and usually cost me more doing it that way anyhow. Brokerage fees: $50, GST etc. The same unit here costs anywhere from $399-$550 I'm going to wait for a bit longer to see how the market deals with this issue of our dollar being on par with yours. Electronics in Canada simply should not cost as much as they do.
I ended up getting my Onkyo 805 for $750CAD including all the fees from the US because of the huge price difference here. I just don't get it :dontknow:

With all the absolutely fantastic AV equipment made in Canada...buy and support your local artisans...I realise that doesn't help in this particular situation, but where and when you can, if you support your fellow Canadians; you'll get equipment every bit as good as and in many cases better than equipment made elsewhere....Ay...

Cheers,
Konky.

I would start a thread with those questions and maybe PM RollsRoyce to chime in... otherwise it will derail this thread, which is a totally different topic.

Interesting problem has developed with my 1400 and I wonder if anyone else has had this issue?
Recently when I play a BluRay DVD the video and audio stops altogether through HDMI. The display on the Samsung continues to run and in most cases the audio/video returns after just a few seconds although not always. The display on my Onkyo says "no signal" during this time as well.
This also sometimes happens with no disc in the player at all.
Has anyone had this happen?

Update to my last post:
It turns out the problem was the HDMI cable. I swapped it out with the one on my A2 and the problem is now happening on the A2 the strange thing is its intermittent even if I am not touching or moving the cable, Why would that be?

Hello,
I'm just setting up my home system. Everything is going great. HDMI from my Comcast Cable, and HDMI from my BD-P1400 into my Onkyo 705. HDMI out to my Phillips 47" LCD.

My problem is when I play a movie in the Samsung any dark areas I get ALOT of blue pixel shifting going on. I have tried 720p/1080i/1080p and other combinations of screen size and such.

Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Kevin
