    Playing regular dvd on Sony blu ray player

    When I play a dvd like old Dracula 1931 it has black bars on the side (this is normal I know) but if I turn the blu ray player OFF - when it comes back on, the aspect ratio has changed - no black bars and the picture is filling the entire screen. It doesn’t look stretched either! Why doesn’t it...

    Sony Blu Ray player freezes when disc first starts?

    I have a new Sony blu ray player where the picture freezes for about 2 seconds when I start a disc’s main title. When this happens it seems like the laser is sort of “waking up” from hibernation. After that, there are no more freezes throughout the entire movie. It’s definitely not any of my...

    Setting 4k blu ray player to play discs with HDR off.

    Hi guys, I have found from playing around with my set up that I prefer the look of 4k disks with hdr set to off. As after playing with setting up hdr I'm not I huge fan of it, I think Its a result of my liking for the traditional look of movies and my TV's poor 350 nits output. Is this...

    Xbox series X as a 4K blu ray player - playback issues?

    Hi, I was thinking of buying an Xbox series X. Since I dont' have (and don't really want to buy) a separate 4k blu ray player, I'd planned on just using the series X as a player too. I've read in various places, that there are issues with stuttering playback, issues with true 24fps blu rays...

    Blu ray player recommendation

    Hi all. Just found out recently that the x box x doesn’t support Dolby Vision when playing a blu ray. So now that leads me down the yellow brick road to find a dedicated player. Any suggestions would be great. Have my eye on a pana 820. Outside of Dolby vision lacking in the x box x is...

    My venerable Sony Blu Ray player seems to have lost its voice after 10 years of service. I've tried a new HDMI cable, using a DVD instead of a Blu Ray, but no luck. I tried a factory reset of the audio settings. It is running the latest firmware. Is there anything I could try so that I could...

    Fast choppy thrashing noise from new 4k blu ray player

    I bought a new Panasonic DP UB9000. Worked fine for several days with HDMI lead to TV. I then connected an optical lead from TV to my DAC then to amps and speakers. This worked for a bit but now mostly gives a horrible distorted noise instead of audio from disc, not even close to being music or...

    Question about input resolutions

    Hi, I own a Panasonic LED LCD TV along with a Panasonic DMR-BWT850EB. Unfortunately, because my TV has a native resolution of 1366x768, there is always some scaling involved.
