Could you try playing a CD as I can't get any CD's to play, it may be a firmware glitch, still waiting for the update for YouTube and iControl support.
my machine is playing CD's fine - a stupid question really, but have you connected everything properly, and double checked. The reason i ask is because i sold one of my other blueray players to a friend ( a Sony ) and connected it up, threw in a blue ray ( Ironman 2 ) - waiting to blow him away with the delights of HD ( he has just purchased his first HD TV ) - pressed play and ....!£@** NOTHING !! - i hastily went through the menu in the tv- tried everything - 20 minutes later when nothing eles worked i decided to check the connections - guess what - Stupid here had not pushed in the HDMI cable into the back of the tv far enough!!
Other than that i cant think of any other reason why it wouldnt work.
I tried to update via ethernet and the player was telling me that it already has the latest software.
Try speaking to the shop/store that you purchased it from as i am sure they will definately help - shops stocking/selling Pioneer machines generally have enthusiast working there that have better knowledge than the normal store sales people ( Currys/Comet ect ).
I hope you get it sorted - let me know how you get on - also if you watch a 3D movie before i do post your findings.
All the best
OK, I have had the player a few days now, and hooked it up to my new Pioneer SC-LX83 amp.
I can only compare it to my BDP-51FD, and the difference is incredible in both sound and vision.
I have had a play with load speeds with 3 random BD titles.
Quantum of Solace 1m 21s
The Rock 51s
Quantum of Solace 50s
The Rock 29s
As you can see load speeds are much quicker, and a joy.
As for build quality it is as good as the receiver and is quite heavy for a small unit, I can only assume it is the armoured chassis. I am unable to test the 3D side of things as I don't have a 3D TV.
Hello, I'm looking into buying the Cambridge Audio Azur 650BD but should I know be going for the Pioneer BDP-LX54?
Just spoken to my local Pioneer retailer and they are advising me to go for the LX52 as that is still the best model is this right?
Well, mine got delivered Saturday and connected to the Lx83 with single HDMI cable. Blu ray great, sound great. Music Cd's sound great but I am randomly getting a 1 sec complete drop in sound every three or four mins on some music CD's and less frequent on others. Doesn't happen with old Blu ray player as I tested with same CD's and never had this problem with other 2 CD/DVD players I own. Don't know if it is over sensitive to disc imperfections or what. Think it's going to have to go back. Anyone had similar problem or any ideas?
(Actually HDMI cable may go into TV - can't remember -anyway just one HDMI cable.)
Ok gonna give u an update. I took my Lx54 back to Richer Sounds complaining that music dropped every 2 to 3 mins for 1 sec. They gave me a replacement machine no quibbles - good on them. Just tried it. Exactly the same problem. Music drops every few mins for a second then continues. Plugged in old blu ray that came with the TV (Panasonic - same make as TV - VT20). Sound noticeably not as good as the Lx54 but no problems with the sound dropping every few mins. Maybe the Pioneer LX54 is not compatible with the Pioneer sx83 amp, I dunno - unbeleivable. Seriously annoyed. Don't want to give Blu ray player back cos music is notably better but *** it keeps dropping every few mins. Only one cable so I can't have messed up connections and it is a top of the range £100 HDMI cable from Richer Sounds. Dunno what to do. Really annoyed. Any ideas?
Only thing this should have is a hard drive on a website well known says it has a 1gb drive read my instructions now need to buy a usb stick.Not happy about that after all the money it was.
