Note: if ever you are looking for something to do...you can select and download video samples from the site below from your PC to your USB drive and then plug into your S780 for viewing:

How do you download samples from this site? If I click on the part #s of the file I want to download, it saying me to use download manager...I tried to do that but still its not working.

Try this:

go to:
http://www.demo-world.eu/trailers/hi...n-trailers.php

Click on:
Part # of the sample you want to download

On the next page, Click on:
>>Download<<

File will download to your computer as a .rar file (( This is a compressed file) )

Extract:
The .rar file.. will extract to a .m2ts file
(PC users) Here's a free app (7-zip) for extracting .rar files on windows7 32 or 64 http://7-zip.org/

Here's a .rar extraction "how to" for both PC/Mac users: http://www.howtogeek.com/73904/begin...-and-mac-os-x/

Note for Mac users: try Double Clicking on the .rar file first to see if it will expand to a .m2ts file before downloading the free Unarchiver program from the App store. Mac OS has a "StuffIt Expander" app for extracting .rar files already built into the Mac OS

Drag .m2ts:
to your USB stick

Plug in:
USB stick into your S780

On S780:
Go to Video menu
Click on USB
Select .m2ts file and play

(works on both PC and Mac)

What it comes down to IMHO is how well it upscales to 4k. If there's a marked improvement, I'd bite for $250.

I've started to notice some goofy things happening with my S780. When a disk first starts playing or resumes after a lengthy pause, the sound cuts out for about 2 seconds but then everything syncs up and is ok. Also, some titling issues, although I wonder if it's with my Chuck Season 5 BD set. Disk one is listed as disk 3 ( there are only 2 disks in the set), and now Disk two says Castle Season 5 instead of Chuck Season 5 Disk 2.

Is this the gracenote database that's keeps popping up?

Sorry, strange but true...

I have Sony Blu Ray BDP-S780 and I just noticed the new foreign movies Netflix added Subtitles are missing but when watching on my Mac there is subtitles WTF is that about? Can anyone help? Why doesn't Sony just update to 1080P, 5.1 surround to the new UI for Netflix to make it easier for customers?

My S780 occasionally gives me the flashing "see you" display requiring me to unplug it. I don't think it's a problem with Hulu, because I have never used that service. Owners on Amazon have reported the same issue. This shouldn't happen on Sony's so-called flagship model. That they've let it continue is disappointing.

I have both Amazon Prime and Netflix and I have the same issue with BDP-S780 Blu-Ray player also, really annoying not only that but the new foreign movies added I do not get subtitles I can only subtitles on my iPad, iPod Touch, Dell Notebook, iMac and Kindel Fire. I think the subtitle problem is that Sony still using the old Netflix UI and their own servers, why not fix this problem? They completely ignore customers now on. As much as I appreciate the quality of Blu Ray I am starting to miss those simple DVD days sigh.

i get the dlashing "see you" every now and then s well, when it happens, it doesnt matter if i was wathing a bd, or steaming content, it seems to do after so many hours of use or something, its alsmost as if the player is rebooting itself, i have never had to unplug it for it to go away though, i usually let it go for awhile, unsually no lnger than abut a mnute or roughlymore, and its stops on its own,

sometimes after it hs done that i have noticed slight improvement in functionality, thats why i think its doing it owns reboot or whatever,

i have an s580 as well and it will do the same thing

one thing that has happened with my s780, its only happened twice, but illbe wathcing a movie, and forwhatever reason, ill have to stop the movie and start it again the next day, ill get a lock up on the player, itll just stop dead in the movie, and that will usually require an unplugging or holding the power button until it goes off, like i said it has only happened twice, just recently was the last one, i started watching the hugo 3d, and it was getting late so i remember where i was in the move, stopped playing, took disc out and yesterday when i oput it back in i went to roughly where i was and after about 5 minutes it just stiopped, i had picture,, it was as if it was paused, but hitting play or pause did nothing, i help the power button for what seemd like 45 seconds, it finally shut off, turned it back on, and the movie played fine from then on

has this happened to anyone else?

The SEE YOU on my unit will not go away. It is very aggravating because unplugging etc.... And it's right back. Do I have to leave it unplugged a long time?? Can I do a hold power button reset? Has anyone figured out a way to stop this from happening? I think it started at last software update. I hope Sony fixes this soon

I just want to give everyone a heads up. I installed Oshare DLNA media server a few days ago. Something about Oshare causes the 780 to continually reboot itself. I thought I had a defective unit. When a second unit did the same thing I decided to uninstall Oshare which fixed things back to normal.


Like others, I have to pull the plug on my 780 for various lockups at times when it won't shut down or reboot. My ancient Samsung 1600 is more reliable than this 780. But the 780 plays my sacd-r's like a champ and does not have cinavia.

Hello folks

I've had this Blu Ray player for a few months, but only today tried to access my Facebook on it for the first time.
Problem!
I can see that I'm correctly logged-in to my Facebook account. The familiar blue bar at the top with my user ID, Message, Notifications icons, etc are visible, but none of the actual content is being displayed, my Wall posts, Profile, etc. All blank space on-screen.
All I seem to be able to access is my Facebook settings.

Is there anything I should be doing in Settings to enable Facebook properly, or does this sound like a bug?
I've tried adding an empty USB stick to the rear port, thinking that perhaps the machine needed some kind of extra memory, but this doesn't make any difference.

Any ideas would be much appreciated!
Cheers!

A bump to an OLD thread - but I just bought a BDP-S780 to use for SACD (to replace my older PS3) and didn't expect to have so many issues getting the multichannel SACD to work.

My HK AVR 347 won't take DSD and I can't seem to get the 780 to output multichannel PCM! All I get is two channel PCM - over TOSLINK and HDMI.

I'm pretty sure I've tried every menu option combination - I'm starting to think it can't do it. I assumed (grrrr...) that it would work fine...

Is it impossible? Or am I just missing the right combination of settings?

Thanks!
Rob

Sony Blu Ray Player BDP-S780

Tried to play a 3D movie in the player and the movie would not play - No 3D player.


I had to factory reset the player.


Is there a reason this happened and how can I do this without resetting everything
