If your connecting up to cable DSL router, just do what PFC said and make the HDCP/DSN change. Also pick your connection speed/type and choose update in the maintanance screen. Took me about 10 minutes with DSL. It went up to 36 cycles on the menu screen... And you can still use it without the update.. It just has a few bug fixes for playback issues with some HD DVD's and a few inhancements. But always a good idea to keep it updated..
do i need to leave the player hooked up to the modem all the time i was hoping to just hook up to the modem when there is a update.THANK YOU

It's good to leave it hooked up all the time if you want to download web-enabled extras on movies such as Transformers. But it's entirely up to you.

Ahh, that's not good. Is that what you see as soon as you power up, or is this going on during the firmware load??

If you want to use the new cool internet interactive features that are coming on movies now I would recommend you to keep it hooked up.

If you do not have a router, you can get one for around $30.00, or just get a hub for $10-15.00 IF your DSL model has a router built into it. Otherwise I recommend a router with Firewall to protect your computer from hackers.

Try unplugging it for a minute or two and power up again.

If your connections/cables are good then you'll need to get the player exchanged. The green screen is unrelated to the firmware update.

Edit: It's possible you might have an HDMI handshake issue of some sort. Did you try component cables directly into the HDTV? If this works then you're good to go for a firmware update.

How do you have it connected?? If HDMI, I would just try connecting it with the composite cable it came with or S-video, and see what happens then. Unplug it for a few minutes and give it another try. After you do the update (if it is sucessful) go back to HDMI. When it is powered up, what does the status screen on the player say (setup , no disc or something like that).. Yo may have a lemon..

It shows up fine hooked directly into my TV via HDMI.

I just burned the .iso for the FW update. Says this disc is not DVD format and wont play.

EDIT: I forgot to burn as a disc image...

Just make sure you burn it as an IMAGE file. This is VERY important!
AWESOME!! Thanks for the info, you just saved me ripping my hair out.
