hi just got ir yesterday. finally hooked it up this morning. after many troubleshooting and lots of googling im calling it quits for now. i bought it online and since its Sunday and especially Easter today the store isnt available to get help from. Hope to hear from you talented and knowledgeable members before the end of the day if possible. anyway, i have a old but still highly functional Samsung LN46A650 LCD HDTV and i used it previously with a sweet LG bluray player before upgrading. this oppo player just in case you didn't know is the darbee edition i realize now it isn't possible to utilize now since that feature requires HDMI 1.4 and my HDTV model didn't even come out yet when it was released. but i can hang onto it for the time being for that feature. also i tried updating my firmware on my Samsung but apparently i have the same firmware that was the most recent. which is strange even tho there was only 3 and before doing that i did a factory reset on the Samsung. its quite possible the most up to date firmware which is very ancient was around or shortly before i bought that HDTV. after properly connecting everything according to what i read the Oppo just will not show up in my Samsung's input selection menu in order to view that device. On Oppo's LED display it says there was new firmware found. i used the remote to download it even tho i couldn't see anything but the cable channel i had on. the cable is only thing detected besides the ps3 and xbox360 when turned on and never the Oppo. after it was finished what it was doing with downloading and installing the firmware it still didn't solve the problem. im losing hope and this is really a crappy disappointment if its incompatible with my HDTV but i truly don't see how it can be other than the HDMI 1.4 aspect which thankfully was included by the store and not bought but now im currently using a 1.3. many thanks in advance.
