Mine didn't really lose the app, it just hasn't updated it as all other manufacturers have to work with the newer Youtube. Samsung has a history abandoning older models.

Does the old BD610 model play 1080i/50Hz (25 fps) discs out of the box? I found a thread on another forum that lists players that accept 50Hz discs, and it seems many LG players handle 50Hz, but it seems to vary from player to player. Some LG players are listed as outputting 50Hz when playing 50z discs, no conversion. Other LG players convert the 50Hz signal to 60Hz output. The 611 is listed in that thread as outputting 50Hz but it seems nobody has reported any information on the 610 so it isn't mentioned. I bought the 610 for them from Wal-Mart many years ago as a gift. The manual says nothing about this either way - there's no mention of 50Hz anywhere. I called LG to ask and of course I'm not certain she knew what she was giving me for information. She claimed their internal documents say it will output a 50Hz disc as 50Hz but of course I'd like to confirm it here if possible, since you have to take anything you hear from customer service with a grain of salt these days. She sounded uncertain. When I called back and asked a second tech support representative, he said it doesn't and he had no information on it. So as usual with "customer support", they don't know their own products.

I'd like to buy Planet Earth II on blu-ray from Amazon UK as a gift, and they own the LG BD610. The discs are 1080i/50Hz (25.000 fps), region-free, just like the original Planet Earth series. I want to make sure their player can play the discs before I buy them. Their TV is a Vizio and I know it will accept both 50Hz and 60Hz signals, so as long as their player will play the disc, it should be fine whether it outputs the signal as 50Hz or 60Hz since either way their TV will accept it.

I tried searching this thread, but oddly, the results came back blank.

I'm hoping some current or former owners of the BD670 or similar can shine some light on the picture mode differences between "standard" and "user setting." User setting is visibly sharper while standard is visibly softer. The question is, is "user setting" adding artificial sharpness or is "standard" artificially softening the picture?

"User setting" mode lets you adjust some picture settings. Sharpness and noise reduction can be turned down or up from a default value of zero. I think this means that some sharpness and noise reduction is in effect at zero, which would mean turning them down all the way would turn them off. I'm just not sure.

Which picture mode provides the "purest" picture quality, without any enhancements?
