Yesterday I finally got around to doing the firmware upgrade to my Samsung DVD HD841. I have done firmware upgrades on PCs and laptop computers (to the CMOS chip) but never on a HT component. I have experienced firmware upgrades go seriously wrong so I was reluctant to attemp the upgrade on the Sammy. However, I always think it best to upgrade to the latest version of installed software so I gave it a go. What would you know but after doing the software upgrade I popped in my "Pianist" DVD and selected DTS as the audio track I wanted to listen to. Curiously all I could get was Dolby ProLogic II to come on and I began to get worried that I screwed up my player. Well, what actually happened was that the firmware upgrade had reset my player's audio settings to default and had turned off DTS and DD in the setup menu; all the other settings had stayed the same. After turning on DTS and DD I played the disc, selected the DTS track, and to my surprise, NO DTS droupouts for the entire movie. I then decided to test this and put in my copy of "Man on Fire" which I knew had definate DTS audio dropouts on my system. Lo and behold, another disc free of DTS audio dropouts. Basically I think what has happened here is that Samsung has addressed the DTS audio dropout issue in their latest firmware upgrade for the HD DVD841 and not advertised it since the upgrade is supposed to fix the DVI connection bug only. My thanks goes out to Samsung. I have really enjoyed my Sammy and the only thing I had been unhappy about was the sometimes DTS audio issue. Now that seems to be resolved with this upgrade and I couldn't be happier!
