Bob McGovern says that a number of movies he purchased after buying his BD-P1200 wouldn't play on the device. The reason being is basically do to the profile specs
and Samsung not issuing a firmware
update to resolve the problems.
There are 3 different profile specs. You have 1.0, 1.1, and 2.0 profile specs. Because of Sony's
hurried efforts to arrive on the hardware scene at the same time as HD-DVD
released their players, the different profiles did not meet spec requirements.
Approving Profile 1.0, even though it limited the potential of the first players and ensured that they'd never be compatible with future profiles was a choice Samsung and Blu-ray
was willing to take.
