So I'm going to be inheriting a Samsung HT-BD2 7.1CH Blu-ray Home Cinema System. I love the sound that comes out of it but think the blu-ray player is a bit bleh. Any recommendations for upgrading the player while still using the sound system?

Will also be inheriting a 52" Samsung Series 6 LCD tv. I'm pretty sure it's a decent tele, but wondering how I would go about checking if it's all set up properly? It was originally just bought and turned on with minor configuration before it got used. What's the easiest way to get firmware updates?

Also thoughts on Wiselink and Anynet?

Lastly, yes, I know they're both old old systems. But since they're free, I'm not complaining.

The home cinema system is an all-in-one system so you won't be able to upgrade the player and still retain the system (unless it'll accept audio out from the new player).

Many wont accept hdmi inputs, so would pay to check that. You won't get hd audio over anything but hdmi.

I'd say you're best to concentrate on setting up the speakers in the correct positions in the room first, and worry about firmware updates last... with the exception of the BluRay player, those things need constant updates to play the latest and greatest discs *grrrrr*.
Are you familiar with how to place speakers / subs in a room?
