Samsung BD-P1500 Blu-ray Player Setup & Tests

The current version is listed under the drive name on the Update page. Aside from having automatic updates cued up, this is by far the easiest way to download and install updates for your Samsung smart TV. If you are looking to update the firmware of your devices, please contact your local distributor, or reach out to us if you’re a direct customer.

Select “By Internet.” A message will appear saying the Blu-ray player is connecting to a server. If a software update is available for your Blu-ray player, it will start downloading automatically. A dialog box will appear after the upgrade file is successfully downloaded.

For BD Live content, apps for YouTube, Netflix and other services. The problem stems from the logging system that stores user data and passes it back to Samsung over the Internet. Which data is logged and sent back is managed by an XML file which contains the policy settings that control this behaviour. According to a source known only as “Gary” “Gray”, the XML file posted on Samsung’s servers on June 18 featured a malformed list element.

We’ve switched to a new tool and updated our measurements. The color gamut and volume have changed slightly. The Samsung S95B TV is amazing for watching sports in a bright room. It has good peak brightness and incredible reflection handling, so it can easily overcome glare in a bright room.

  • It’s packed with a ton of features, and it has variable refresh rate support to reduce screen tearing.
  • Perhaps they thought the Blu-ray Disc Association wouldn’t actually issue too many updates.
  • Oddly enough it will not pass it’s network connection test, even though I can see it reach out to the NTP servers and update the time and date.

This is what the Toshiba help article would have you use. Assuming one is made available, you could use AC02 to upgrade your firmware from AC01. Although, I suspect that the “AC02” firmware was only released as stock firmware on “TS-L633C” models that rolled out of the factory, not as a binary download you could get over the Internet. I have come to this conclusion after some extensive google-fu and viewing some dodgy websites that claim otherwise. Thanks, I was able to find this information, finally, on line, and used it, only to find out that my firmware was already updated!

From our preferred viewing distance (~70cm or a bit further back) this was not an extreme gamma shift or saturation change for such a large VA model. Though consistency wasn’t the best we’ve seen for a VA panel of this size, either – the CQ32G3SU with its AUO VA panel performed significantly better in this respect. Neither model is up to the standards of competing IPS models when it comes to colour consistency, however. As noted earlier, the monitor includes a Mini LED backlight (FALD – Full Array Local Dimming) solution with 1196 independently addressable zones.

This software can also predefine splitting of the display and picture-in-picture for the simultaneous presentation of multiple inputs. That’s slightly annoying for those that want the best colour accuracy. Because that comes with the sRGB preset, and yet that option has limited adjustment controls. One interesting fact about this screen shared by Samsung with us is that the decoding electronics can accept 4K signals, which are scaled to display. As useful as this might be for playing 4K Blu-rays, for example, we don’t recommend you use this feature from a console or computer since it will introduce display lag and increase power consumption.
