@Bobtomay Thanks for the Monoprice link to that connector. Missed that somehow. Would have come in handy a while back when I was connecting the old receiver to my Mac.

Count me into the "starting to dislike Samsung" crowd. I bought one of their 32' sets a while back when our old CRT type Mitsu gave up. Bought the TV because I had good luck with one of their monitors. The TV is fine but the Samsung Blu-Ray player has been a nightmare.

The initial documentation lead me to believe the player would work with a wireless dongle and that with the right server software the player could play my iTunes library. Nice idea since the TV was already connected to the stereo. After purchasing the player I found out that:

1. Wireless support requires a certain chipset. The Samsung dongle with this chip was about $75. That was more than I payed for the player.

2. DLNA support was a joke. Tried three different programs as server software and the Samsung didn't play nice with any of them or they were a huge system drain.

3. The player does a poor job playing back Blue Ray discs. A brand new disc from the Harry Potter series brings it to its knees about 2/3 of the way into playback.
