Can the UD5005 output 7.1 LPCM via HDMI?
If I read the manual I can only find support for 5.1!

Unfortunatly I don't have a 7.1 system (for now at least) to test with, but... I'd be surprised if it can't? But then most players seem to have some weird quirks to them so maybe it wouldn't be that surprising. Anyone else have a way to test this?

Quick questions for everyone, (as almost always my question relates to the firmware updates that Marantz continues to refuse to tell us any details about...).

First: Does anyone know what the most recent Firmware does?

Second: Even if you don't know specifically what it does do I have a question about what I (hope) it doesn't do: Take away the ability to play SACD-R's.

Can anyone who has updated to the most recent firmware confirm whether or not the player will still play burned SACD's? (I like to play burned versions of my SACD's on my downstairs system, rather than the originals so if the copies get scratched or anything happens to them I can just burn another, and keep my more pristine originals just a bit safer for playing in my upstairs player which won't play burned ones).

I'll have to check when I get home. It's been some time since that post. I would say it's likely whatever firmware was out before the firmware that came out near that date.

I really don't understand why there still isn't just a site somewhere we can go to and see the release notes for the firmware updates. This is pretty basic stuff for most modern companies.

Sorry for being so late in replying. I recently checked back in here and realized I never replied with my firmware version!

Unfortunatly now that I'm sitting here with my player I can't figure out how to find the firmware version it's running! Anyone know how to find it?

Tried some tricks I did for denon, to find firmware version - didnt work. I bought a used UD5005 recently from ebay. Not sure what FW it was in. But I bit the bullet and upgraded yesterday to the latest FW thru network. SACD-R, DVDA-R plays fine. MKVs and PAL DVDs plays too.
Have problem playing large AVCHD folder thru USB. It tries and freezes. Best thing is it won't recognize cinavia copies. Overall I am happy

The Cinavia thing I believe has been in the player more or less from day 1, (or at least since I got mine) so I won't be losing anything by that. Thank you for confirming that it will still play SACD-R's just fine with the latest firmware though, that's a bit load off my mind. I'll go ahead and upgrade it then! I really wish all of this stuff wasn't so opaque though. We should be able to easily find what firmware we're running, and to know what firmware updates do before we install them. I don't even need the release notes to be there with he update on the player. Just give me a website I can go to and see!

Anyway, thank you for taking the plunge and testing!

Problem with HD DVD format

With James Taylor's birthday this past Thursday, I scored a used copy of a Musicares 2006 tribute. It has a stellar cast of musicians and looks quite promising. However, despite the manual's claim that this format is compatible with this universal player, I get an error message saying in effect "unknown disc".
This is the only HD DVD in my library and I have had no other problems with a variety of formats. I wouls love to enjot this concert and am hoping someone may have a suggestion.
This model is the last of the line that cannot be updated via ethernet, so I wonder if a firmware update would be worth the effort/cost?
I appreciate any advice on how to enable my player or on some other way to enjoy this tribute.

With thanks in advance

Are you sure we're talking about the same player here? Perhaps you posted in the wrong thread?

This is the Marantz UD5005, its a Blu-Ray player, but not an HD-DVD player (at least so far as I know!). It is a "Universal" player insofar as it can play Blu-Ray, DVD-Audio, SACD, CD, and probably a couple of other somewhat obscure formats. I do not believe it can play HD-DVD's (which haven't been made for some time, Blu-Ray having won that format war). It also absolutely CAN be updated via ethernet, I've done so several times, in fact most recently doing it, and talking about it in the posts just above yours.

Thanks for your prompt reply. You are quite right and I erred on two points. First I distinctly remember seeing HD-DVD specified as a format, yet when I track down my source, I discover it among a list of formats NOT supported. Ouch.
One the second point, I have confused the firmware upgrade methods involved with my other Marantz gear, the SR6005 which needs a trip to a service center for this service.
You are correct on both points and I regret the inartful query. I usually do my research before asking for the assistance of others. Thanks again and with an apology.

No worries. I just wanted to make sure that you were in the right place to get a helpful answer!

Don't think its the firmware

I purchased a UD5005 and having the same exact issue. Blu-ray freezes after being on for at least 40 minutes. I also had this freeze happen with Netflix. In both cases I powered down the unit, restarted and finished watching the shows but I am curious if there are any fixes. I really hope I did not throw money down the tubes. It tested fine, but I did not test it for an hour.

I have the latest firmware, the fan works and it is not overheating (at least there are no hot spots on the unit), I tried resetting to default (which was 16:9 squeeze, then tried 16:9 wide, Bitstream/PCM not sure why or if that would have anything to do with it).

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

So I'm looking through the manual and I'm not finding anything. Which is weird. Have you tried unplugging it for a while? Maybe like 30 minutes to an hour? That seems to be the way to reset some products.

You might also try contacting Marantz customer service. If/when you find out how to do it please share it here as that's definitely something I'd like too have in my back pocket in case I start having issues too!

Ok, I found this in the thread for the UD5007, it may work on the 5005 too:

"Yes, hold play and forward track buttons together for a few seconds and this will do a factory reboot. It should say "initializing" and then "initialized" when finished."

Do you have access to another remote you could try just to be sure it's not the remote that's the problem? (Like a universal remote?) I'm also disappointed to see there's no way (even a clunky way) to get around the menus without the remote.

I tried the remote on another player and it controls it with no problem. The player is now informing me of a firmware upgrade, but that requires the enter button to start that. Close but no cigar.

Universal player won't eject disc

Does any one have some advice as to how I can open a disc bay that doesn't respond to panel or remote commands or to gentle tugging. I can find no obvious place to employ a paper clip strategy.
There is a disc in drive but it will play and has not been displaced. Player has been on a very stable rack for years.
I have powered down for 60 seconds and powered on again without success.
Live in Seattle and service center is in Portland, Oregon. Hoping for some advice in returning this to service. Many thanks...

PS: I just noticed the reset method described a few posts above.
No luck on first attempt. Additionally, I have not uodated thhe original firmware, it remains stock.

Did anyone ever find a solution to the tray not ejecting? I have the same issue, seems like a mechanical problem.

I found this thread after googling the term "burn sacd-r ISO to play in a bluray player". I need help.
I have a large number of *.ISO files that are backups (copies) of SACDs. They played fine via network (JRiver software) to a Marantz AV8801 processor. I've moved the hardware to another room and now these large files play with a stutter. So, now I have to forgo the network playing route and simply burn the *.ISO's to actual physical disks (DVD-R or DVD-RW).
The network stutter is completely beside the point here. Here is where I need help.
I've read up on the topic and apparently there are only a few bluray players that will play SACD copies. As I understand it, the makers of these universal disk players were behind the curve on copyright protection for these early models and they of course caught up with the later models that simply stopped reading the burned SACD-R copies.
Marantz UD5005 was mentioned most often as such a player, along with a few OPPO models. Here is one of the links:
https://github.com/sacd-ripper/sacd-...tible-players.
So, I buy a used UD5005, fully expecting it to play a DVD-R with an *.ISO copy of a SACD burnt onto it. But the UD5005 cant read it. And I bought it especially for this purpose. So, what am I doing wrong?
Here are the possibilities:
1) I am using the wrong disk types (DVD-R). Should it be DVD+R? DVD-RW? DVD+RW? A specific brand of disk - Sony, memorex, etc?
2) I am using the wrong type of SACD-R *.ISO files. Is there a certain kind burnt with certain software so the UD5005 will read it?
3) Something is wrong with the Marantz UD5005? It plays regular BDs fine. I have not tried SACDs on it, but I am sure it is fine. I tried resetting it to factory default firmware, then to the latest firmware update, nothing works.
The Marantz says either no disk or unknown disk.
Please help.
Thanks.

I'll have to check when I get home, but I seem to recall having success with DVD-R's, and I think also DVD+R's, and I have definitely had success with multiple brands but I'll try to see what brands I have used. To burn .iso's I have simply used Disk Utility in Mac OS to burn the disc image to a DVD, then popped it in my UD5005 and had no problem playing them.

It might be worth trying a commercial SACD just to be sure there isn't some problem with the player that prevents it from playing SACD's entirely.

One final thought: How exactly ARE you burning these .iso's to disc? Are you just putting the .iso file in the DVD and burning it, or are you using a program that burns a disc image to a DVD? In the first cast I don't imagine you'll have any success, as the player will just see it as a file on a disc and likely not know what to do with it. I don't believe the player is set up to know what to do with .iso files, so it needs to be "extracted" (I'm not sure of the correct terminology) onto a disc so it behaves like a normal disc.

Much obliged, looking forward to your update.

It might be worth trying a commercial SACD just to be sure there isn't some problem with the player that prevents it from playing SACD's entirely.
What a great idea. It plays BDs just fine, but I ought to try a commercial SACD, you are right. Will buy something.

One final thought: How exactly ARE you burning these .iso's to disc? Are you just putting the .iso file in the DVD and burning it, or are you using a program that burns a disc image to a DVD?
I've used 3-4 different kinds of software, Nero Platinum, ImgBurn, MagicISO. I have used them all before to convert stereo music to multi-channel DTS-HD MA blurays. The fact that I can stick the resulting DVD-R into my laptop and clearly see not an *.ISO file on the disk, but the actual SACD folders and files the *.ISO unzips into tells me that the software does what is supposed to do correctly.

Thank you for taking the time to comment.

Well, then it sounds like you're burning them correctly. I have no experience doing it on Windows but assume what you've tried should work. I just figured I'd ask to be absolutely sure! Burning discs has always been slightly more complicated than it probably should be and it's always worth checking to be sure people are taking the right steps.

I'm setting a reminder to myself to check my SACD-R's when I get home and see what brands and kinds I've used.

I'll also ask around among some others I know who've successfully done this for any suggestions or tips.

Ok, so I just checked and oddly, right now it looks like I only have one SACD-R that I can find. I know I've burned others in the past, though admittedly some of that was just experimentation to see if it worked. The .iso's I have are all basically just to have backups of the ones I've purchased (I try to take care of my discs but have a terrible history of scratching them). The one I have though is on a Dual Layer Memorex DVD+R (in this case it was big enough that a dual layer disc was necessary. Others I have are small enough to go on a single layer disc. I don't think a dual layer disc is necessary for the smaller ones, though I can't say that for sure. I might try to burn one later tonight if I have time. Sorry, it's been a while since I've burned any of these.

Thanks. That is interesting. I thought DVD+R are much less likely to play than the DVD-R. But it doesnt hurt to try that. Thanks.
