I was wondering if someone could provide me info on the specifics on the new Chipset that the dmp-bdt230 is using and answer my questions. I have a GT30 Panasonic TV and have moved from a Sony s780 blu-ray player to a DMP-BDT230 deck (Sony did not provide 5.1 and 1080P in Netflix).
1) I have read that Panasonic has moved to a new chipset for the 230/330 models?
a) Does anyone know what the chipset is? Mediatek?
b) How does the 2013 chipset compare to the chipset in the 210/220 models? Is the picture and sound quality the same or better in the 2013 models?
c) Looking at the Canadian feature page for Panasonic 230, that info is incorrect. Are we loosing anything in 2013 models by not having the Adaptive Chroma Processing feature? https://panasonic.ca/english/audiovideo/bluray/features.asp
2) I know that this has been debated way too many times but based on what I read, the Panasonic GT30 models prefer 4:2:2 instead of 4:4:4… due to a slight color decoding issue when using 4:4:4. Can anyone confirm this?
3) Is the picture and sound quality the same in the 330 compared to the 230 (2013 model)? Same Chipset?
I called Panasonic but they had no idea of the info on the chipset!
Ultimately, I am curious to know how the picture and sound quality compares in the 2013 models to the 2011/2012 models…since Panasonic has moved away from the LSI – UniPhier chipset. I realize that the old chipset has received years of firmware updates to improve the stability of the product.
Thank you for your time.
