Although the player should upconvert a DVD that is not HD to 1080p, the output resolution can be manually set to the same resolution as your display. Additionally, when you connect the player to the TV using the HDMI cable for the first time or to a new TV, the HDMI output resolution will be automatically set to the highest supported by the TV.

besides here Ive seen several others correcting mrsamsungs information. also got bad info from a live chat person on samsungs website. not sure what to do now

Currently, there is no information on whether or not the 2011 features will be added to the 2010 and earlier models. That said, the browser is only available on select Samsung TVs, and is a Samsung browser, and not a Google browser.

From the available information, it seems that, besides YouTube, all other video services will be subscription based. Sidereelz and Megavideo currently do not have applications on the Samsung Apps system.

The player should not have any impact on your speakers since they are driven through your receiver.

answer 2
Probably not.

The home theater systems include an amplifier that are designed to drive audio to, and out of, speakers.

Blu-ray players that are standalone models typically don't have the amplifier necessary to power speakers. If you were to purchase a Blu-ray home theater system, you may be able to use the speakers mentioned in your post, however our home theater systems would come with new speakers.

You may want to speak with your authorized Best Buy salesperson to see if they can help you best choose something that meets your needs.

The only automatic shutoff function that this Blu-ray player has is part of the Anynet+ (HDMI-CEC) options, which would turn off the Blu-ray player in the event that the Samsung television (connected with HDMI) is turned off. This option can be disabled or enabled through the menu system of the Blu-ray player.

Otherwise, the unit would stay powered on until you manually shut it off.

We appreciate your interest in Samsung products.

Question

Why is the audio choppy on the MLBTV app?

According to MLB tv, it's a Samsung issue...but I can't find anything on it. The audio on every game goes in and out about every 5 seconds.

Make sure to upgrade your firmware first. This may resolve the issue as this unit apparently has a problem with choppy video/audio when using online services like Netflix, etc. The firmware update fixes this issue. Check your manual on how to update it.

If that doesn't fix it then you may not have enough bandwidth to handle the game's video and audio. The MLB plugin should allow you to downgrade the quality of the video (to free up bandwidth), and that may help you too. Good luck!

I’m sorry you are having an issue with your device. Although with the information you have provided I do not have a solution for you; contacting Samsung Service (refer to your device's manual for more information or visit Samsung's website) would be your best next course of action.
