Does anybody have the latest firmware for the LE32R41BD that they can upload to some webspace (or email to me and I can host) for download?

My TV was delivered only last week and yet it's got the May firmware :thumbsdow

Any idea which of the 47 pages it's on?

I forgot about the cable. What type is it as I can probably get one at work?
Is it just a normal serial cable?

OK, I've got it.

Any idea what kind of cable that is. I realise one end is a standard serial connection but the other end looks like a 3.5mm headphone jack!

mparter sorry I think its in the first 10 pages?
you have found it well done.
The cable is as you say standard serial to 3.5 stereo headphone type jack
goes into the service socket which looks just like a headphone socket
Somewhere in the mamoth thread there is a picture with Pin outs if you fancy
making one yourself, but i would ring sumsung etc. (i do not know where the pic
is maybe half way onwards in the thread)

:lease: Please guys!
Someone with a 32" Rome model post the new firmware somewhere!
The cable can be made by ourselves but we don't have the correct mot file!

You do know that Samsung will actually email you the firmware if requested? They gave me this option, but I needed the cable.
To check which version you have you'll need to enter service mode:
1. Put tv in standby
2. Press INFO, MENU, MUTE and then POWER on the remote
3. To get out of it press POWER again
***DON'T TOUCH ANY OF THE SETTINGS, YOU CAN BORK YOUR TV PROPER***
I would email the firmware, but mine is the freeview version. Although, I'm sure my CD had the words ROME on it?

Can you tell us the email address where we can ask for the firmware?
Also, I think the correct firmware for rome models is called "Rome2.mot".
Do you have it on the CD?

Also, whats the difference between the Rome and Greenwich models? :confused:
Greenwich is the model with digital freeview tuner.
Rome includes only the analogue tuner.
Firmware will tell GRNW or ROME so you'll know...

You need to phone them (number is on page 1 of this thread). They'll want your serial number and model. Tell them you have the cable & just need the firmware emailed to you.

Rome2.mot (LE26R41B) and software are available from my webspace Here

im as of yet unsure if the Size of the Tv matters with the firmware files, i know some have tried the Firmware i have on larger Tv's but they havent reported back to me if it worked or if i did not.

OK, is working now (thanks, MrHat), I have the files.
Also, someone promised me the files from his 40" Rome model. It will be interesting to compare them to see if there are any differences.

MrHat, just one more question. I'm not sure if the firmwares are different for other countries. Can you check please if your updated TV includes also the Romanian language and if there is an option to set the channels as Eastern Europe?
Thanks again!

I like the way you are on the case and made up your own lead
Hope the update goes well, mine took minutes with the samsung kit
and i'm convinced the normal dtv picture is better

Well, that was the most nerve racking experience I've had for a while. I always get nervous upgrading firmware, even though I've done it quite a few times and never had any issues!

Firmware updated and TV working fine. All my settings with the exception of the picture ones seem to have been remembered.

So, apart from fixing the tearing issue(s), what improvements over the May 18 2005 firmware will I get with this?

there is a slight improvement to RGB on my tv with the new firmware, it also got rid of a green streak that i got when the screen size changed from 4:3 to 16.9 on occasion.

I can confirm that all Rome models have the same firmware, it's not depending on the screen size. Owners of 26", 32" and 40" send me their Rome2.mot files and they are the same!
