Question about Samsung HT-BD2R 7.1 Channel Blu-ray Home Theatre System Theater System

1 Answer

Firmware upgrade Hi The samsung player i have is labelled a HT BD2 without the "R" - so i hope you can still help me with my problem. I am in Australia and the player is region 4 dvd and region B blu ray. New blu ray discs are being released with new features on them that require firmware profile 1.1 or higher. The player is 1.0 only. I have read on some sites that the movie should play in 1.0 player just not the new features. This is not the case. Aussie version of Scorpion King 2 will not play at all. States it needs 1.1 or higher for the new features.... So, my question is - when will there be an upgrade for this player? OR - is there a work around on the blu ray disc to get it to work? Thanks Michael

    I have upgraded the player to the latest firmware version and this issue is still not resolved. As I understand the profile 1.0 should still be able to play the movies on the disc, however I get horrible purple squares (like noise) all over the screen as if the player can not properly decode the disc.

    It seems that this player is being sold in stores without any warning that it might be incompatible with most blu ray discs on sale (and therefore completely useless).

Turning off and writing prot


It's not clear where you're seeing "protect" nor how you're connected to your TV so I have to make some assumptions.

The manual for the HT-BD2R wasn't available but the HT-BD2/HT-BD2S was...

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Samsung-HT-BD2-Home-Theater-Systems-manual/id/22986bh646/t/2/

Read the section of page 24 regarding HDCP and page 70 regarding Copy Protection.

If the unit is powering itself off...

Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts and overloads.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced hands-on tech.

How can I connect my PS3 to the HT BD2 and get it to play dolby digital or dts audio? Thanks


Use an optical cable and then it should work just fine. Just saw Avatar from my PS3 through the Samsung HT-BD2 and the sound was excellent.
So go and buy an optical cable :)
My problem is to get the BD2 to download updates. It doesn´t seem to work for me.

I have a Samsung HT BD2 region 4, I go many region 1, they wont play, how can I make it play?


To unlock the DVD code its defends upon what region you belongs or from were you bought the DVD unit. Just click this site to hack the region code ; http://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks

To keep it simple, this means that DVD players and DVDs are labeled for operation on within a specific geographical region in the world. For example, the U.S. is in region 1. This means that all DVD players sold in the U.S. are made to region 1 specifications. As a result, region 1 players can only play region 1 discs. That's right, the DVDs themselves are encoded for a specific region. On the back of each DVD package, you will a find a region number (1 thru 6).
The geographical regions are as follows:
REGION 1 -- USA, Canada
REGION 2 -- Japan, Europe, South Africa, Middle East, Greenland
REGION 3 -- S.Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Parts of South East Asia
REGION 4 -- Australia, New Zealand, Latin America (including Mexico)
REGION 5 -- Eastern Europe, Russia, India, Africa
REGION 6 -- China
REGION 7 -- Reserved for Unspecified Special Use
REGION 8 -- Reserved for Cruise Ships, Airlines, etc...
REGION 0 or REGION ALL -- Discs are uncoded and can be played Worldwide, however, PAL discs must be played in a PAL-compatible unit and NTSC discs must be played in an NTSC-compatible unit.

The end result is that DVDs encoded for regions other than Region 1 cannot be played on a region 1 DVD player, also, players marketed for other regions cannot play region 1-stamped DVDs


Hope it may help you;

NEED TO UPGRADE MY HT-BD2 SYSTEM


There are two ways to approach this. You can either download the update from Samsung's support page, burn it onto a CD, place the CD into your Blu-Ray player and let the update load...or you can connect your Blu-Ray player to the internet and let the player download and install the update automatically.

For the first approach, the upgrade file can be downloaded by clicking on the following link:
http://org.downloadcenter.samsung.com/downloadfile/ContentsFile.aspx?CDSite=us&CttFileID=2149020&CDCttType=FM&ModelType=N&ModelName=HT-BD2&VPath=FM/200903/20090318095607437/081227_01_HT_BD2_XAA.zip

...and the instructions to installing the file on your system can be found here:

http://org.downloadcenter.samsung.com/downloadfile/ContentsFile.aspx?CDSite=us&CttFileID=2149021&CDCttType=FM&ModelType=C&ModelName=HT-BD2&VPath=FM/200901/20090109105847140/HT-BD2_System_Upgrade_by_CD_Method.pdf

The second approach is detailed in the HT-BD2 User's Manual (pages 46-49). It requires you to first plug a network cable into the back of your Blu-Ray home theater unit, then connect the other end into a LAN connection on your wall (or into the back of your cable/DSL modem) Page 26 of the user's manual shows you how to make the connection.

Blu-Ray disc does not play.


You need a software upgrade. If your blu-ray is lan connected you can upgrade from the blu-ray, just follow the menu. If you have no internet connection, use your PC. On the manufacturers web site find your model and download a firmware update to cd, then play this in your blu-ray, follow the on screen menu. Good luck

How i can view divx whit subtitles (.srt, .sub.ssa)?


Look for firmware upgrades in Samsung's website.

You have to download a set of files, burn them on to a CD or DVD (check the help file in the download) and then insert the CD or DVD to your DVD Player and follow the on-screen instructions. It is really simple, just make sure you download the correct upgrade from the website. And one advice, use a RW DVD or RW CD because you may have to try it many times ;) .
