Here’s why your Samsung Blu-ray player bricked itself: It downloaded an XML config file that broke the firmware

Now, there are good HDR LCDs out there, but even the best struggle with fine HDR details like starfields or Christmas lights, and the worst panels with only a few zones look downright terrible. No such issues with an OLED panel like this, which looks brilliant in all conditions. The only concern would be the curve reducing the visibility of the entire screen, though 1800R is good for gaming at this sort of size and aspect ratio. Uniformity was great as well, continuing a trend of these QD-OLED panels delivering a nice and consistent experience. Minimum brightness was weaker than expected at 68 nits, a bit of a surprise considering the other options can push down to below 30 nits.

The PCM setting otherwise presents the highest-quality digital audio with all elements mixed together. It was speculated by netizens and some media reports that a HTTPS certificate error was to blame. However, it’s been suggested to The Register that the cause of the failure was an XML file downloaded by the network-connected devices from Samsung servers during periodic logging policy checks. Place the Bluetooth device within 3 ft. from the Blu-ray Disc player. On the supplied remote control, press BLUETOOTH button. Please note that this page is not being updated anymore as pretty much all players now have an Internet connection to download/update the player firmware.

These tests are important to demonstrate the player’s ability to deinterlace data on discs that store the content as 1080i. While the majority of commercial Blu-ray discs store the data as 1080p/24, there are some movies and concert videos that store it as 1080i. Finally, there’s Bitstream , which sends the selected soundtrack, be it Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD MA, or whatever, as a native bitstream to the AVR or pre/pro for decoding in that device. In the Audio menu, you can select PCM, Bitstream (re-encode), or Bitstream to specify the digital-audio output format. The PCM setting decodes whatever audio format you select on the disc and sends it as PCM over HDMI to the AVR or pre/pro.

  • If I can physically see a problem, I can usually fix it.
  • Without it, the display will refresh 240 times per second regardless of whether there is a new frame to display or not.

However, as there are only 8 zones on the monitor’s big 32″ sized screen, the local dimming solution is not particularly effective. It supports a 95% DCI-P3 wide color gamut (equivalent to ~125% sRGB), which results in more lifelike and vibrant colors. It’s also the first gaming model to feature an aggressive 1000R screen curvature for extra immersion. The other thing is that the issue happens mostly when turning HDR off, or when starting a video either on Hulu or Netflix , or just when doing normal stuff. At 1000R the Odyssey G7 has the curviest curve of all the monitors at this size.

Ahmad Hamza has updated details to Digital Isolator Breakout. FulanoDetail has updated the log for DIY Human-sized Mech. John Loeffler has updated the project titled Uno Plus+. I gave the player a WiFi password and it now has the boot loop.

The BG70 improves in a few areas, like peak brightness, reflection handling, and motion handling. It also has a built-in Tizen OS smart platform, which the AG70 doesn’t have, letting you stream content without a PC. The pixel response time speed is impressive, as well. In fact, the Odyssey G7 monitors are the fastest VA displays available at the time of this writing. Regardless, thanks to the monitor’s wide color gamut, high contrast ratio, and strong peak brightness, it delivers a good HDR picture quality overall with notable improvement over SDR.
