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

2 Answers

Blu-Ray disc does not play.

I loaded "The Incredible Hulk" (new blu-ray disc) and the menu took forever to come up and displayed a (... loading ...) screen during part of that time. Once I got to the menu it displayed normally but when I hit play it went through the disclaimer page and then did nothing. I have tried this many times and even went to scene selection and tried going in a few chapters with no avail. Another thing that is weird is that the Menu (on the HT-BD2, not the TV) displayed "slide show". During some of the many times I tried to get this to play the movie, I was able to go to some of the other menu selection points like SETUP.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I downloaded the zip file, burnt onto a cd/rw as image to disk, and it was copied as a *.iso file.

    File placed into samsung HT BD2 and it is rejected?

    So I thought rather than copy image to disk I will crete a data CD instead, so I burn the image as a data CD get some RUF image loaded on stick it nto the blu ray and guess what it is still rejected.

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

I had the same issue with my fathers blu ray player.. it wont even update with the lan.. so what i did to resolve this..
i went to the web page found the blu ray player.. Take into mind that theres 2 versions of this player the "HT BD2R and HT BD2" find the one thats urs, download the update file from the page. Take into mind "drag and dropping a file onto a disc through my computer and then burning it will not work!!!" to make a readable data disc you will need a Burning software such as Nero Burner! which can be bought from any major online or highstreet computer store. and then create the data disc using such software.. once this is done turn on the blu ray player insert the disc and let it read.. it will eventually read it and ask would you like to update. and press yes and simply follow onscreen instructions!. and it works!

Select subtitle and audio track when ripping Blu-ray?

Among the Blu-ray ripping tools, Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper is favored by most movie lovers for its high success rate of ripping and free switchover of languages and subtitles. It removes BD+ and AACS protections, and handles Blu-ray discs up to MKB version 10 and above so that the Blu-ray movies are attainable freely. Recently Dolby TrueHD codec had been added to the app, which enables users to access any of the audio tracks in Blu-ray discs. It is “able to open, copy, and watch every Blu-ray, irrespectively whether the Blu-Ray was bought in Europe, Japan or USA (i.e. all the three zones)”. (commented by Markus Nolff, a user of Blu-ray Ripper). This guide shows you how to select subtitles and tracks of different languages when ripping Blu-ray discs. A step-by-step guide is displayed below:

Step 1. Load Blu-ray disc.
Make sure you have had an external Blu-ray drive connected with your PC. Insert the desired Blu-ray disc and run Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper. (A free trail version of Blu-ray Ripper can be downloaded from here.) Now when you see the interface, click on “DVD ROM” and the app will import Blu-ray movie from the BD-ROM. Check the directory and click “OK”. Do not expand the folders and try to look for certain M2TS files, since the ripper will detect and put all the M2TS files in file list. You can load DVD in the same way, the ripper is able to cope with any DVD, either protected or not. If your source movie is in folders, click “DVD folder” to import the folders.

Step 2. Set subtitles and audio tracks.
One Blu-ray disc usually comes with multiple audio tracks and subtitles of different languages. Right under the file list you could find Subtitle and Audio option from where the subtitle and dubbings are set. The dropdown list shows you the detailed information, such as the subtitle language, audio language, codec, channels etc. Here you check the main movie (with longest duration), set the subtitle and audio track, and double-click the file to preview your settings.

How to play Blu-ray ISO backups on WD TV Live

To play Blu-ray ISO backups on your WD TV Live, one thing you should know is that WD TV Live can well play ISO files from a USB drive, while network shares do have problems actually.
In order to get an ISO backup, what’s your workflow? As all I know, some people use tsMuxeR to back up the Blu-ray disc, and then converted it into an ISO using Daemon Tools. Personally, I use Pavtube Blu-ray Copy to make ISO backups for my Blu-ray discs.
Within several clicks, this program can finish its task, and enables you to get an ISO image file. What you should do is just loading your BD files via "Source" option, and then choose "Image File (*.ISO)" from the pull down menu of "Target" to specify the destination folder. BTW, you’d better indicate your USB drive as the save path, or you need spend time to copy the ISO image to your USB drive repeatedly. Once the two steps finished, the backup process will begin, and then you just need wait for the resulted ISO files for your WD TV Live.

As long as copying task is completed, plug the USB into your WD TV, and connect it to your HDTV via HDMI cable, what you should do next is enjoying your BD movies on your widescreen TV leisurely.
One more thing I should mention is that some users have problems to play Blu-ray ISO files via their WD TV, but DVD ISO is working well. Not clear about the accurate reason, but another solution can be recommended. Since WD TV is able to beautifully playback HD MKV files up to Full HD 1080p, thus we just need a utility to convert BD files to HD MKV, and then everything will be OK. Because of the Blu-ray copyright issues, some discs are highly protected, we must take advantage of a powerful application to do so. In that case, the following Blu-ray ripper is suggested, it is able to remove nearly all kinds of BD protections, including BD+, AACS, and even MKB Version > 10 is supported as well.
This Blu-ray ripper allows users exporting "MKV HD Video (*.mkv)" format, and also enables users to reset audio and video parameters via clicking "Settings" button. You can set the resolution at 1920*1080 to remain 1080p quality of your Blu-ray movies, as well as keep 5.1 channel of the original surround sound. All in all, all the parameters like bit rate, codec name, frame rate, sample rate are all changeable in the following interface.

After your preferred settings for your WD TV have been set well, just click "Convert" button to start conversion. Once finished, you can watch them on your TV via WD TV with ease, and the high quality of the Blu-ray movie has never been changed at all.
Is this helpful? Hope it is.

Why won't the samsung blu ray players play all blu

Software on blu-ray players need to be updated occasionally. You may need to visit Samsung's website for instructions on updating the software on your player. This may be as simple as downloading a file or requesting an update disc.
