It is the samgsung upconverter, I completely replaced it with a sony converter and it works just fine. Samsung has said there was a bad lot of those specific players you are all talking about.

I also bought the DVD-1080P8 and a TV LCD LN40A530... When I use the DVD player connected to the TV via a Philips HDMI cable, the image blinks few times per minute... However, when I use the same TV and cable connected to my Scientic Atlanta cable HD TV terminal, it works fine... I called Samsung, they recommended me to try to upgrade the firmware. The instructions on ther website are weird (it mentions to check if the file extensio is "ruf", but the file provided has another extension. Anyway, I contacted Samsung, and they asked me to send back my DVD player because they would be going to replace it. But they are not sure if the new replacement player will come with the same firmware version... I no longer can return it to Future Shop. so I will try to sell it.

The problem is with the Samsung DVD having HDMI issues with the Samsung LCD. I ultimately bought a Philips DVD Soundbar and everything works, except for the Anynet+ since it's only for Samsung products. How embarrassing for Samsung for allowing this to happen.

DItto here; same problem. I have a new Samsung 32" and a new upconvert DVD. Tried using other HDMI outputs, which made it better but didn't fix.

Wow! I'm having the same issue. Brand new Samsung TV and DVD player. Tried getting a new HDMI cable, still doing it. I'm going to return the DVD player to Circuit City. Maybe I should try a different brand DVD player...how wierd...
