Hi,

I have a Sumsung 46" f7000 connected to a Samsung BD-F6500. I notice visible 3D crosstalk when playing BluRay 3D, however when streaming 1080p 3D content via YouTube direct to the TV there is no crosstalk at all, any ideas why this would be? Says to me its the BluRay player but the reviews of this player say PQ is very good. Im at a loss, no idea,

Can any one advise or shed some light on what the issue maybe please?

Thanks!

BD players output FullHD 3D using special packed frames over HDMI. You don't loss resolutions in this kind of 3D.

YouTube 3D are half the resolution using either checkboard or side by side pattern packed into normal video frame. You only get half the resolution.

Not the same thing.

Hi all, thinking of getting a Samsung BD-F6500 but does it allow resuming of DVDs and blurays? My Sony BD 480 will only remember one disc at a time, and even then, a lot it won't meaning even stopping a BR will throw you back the the beginning of the disc.

Also, any experience with it playing DVD-Rs/BD-R/Es?

Thanks!

Resume play on Blu-rays is Java controlled. Some discs allow it, some don't. Some use bookmarks, Universal, to save places. All players will react the same way.

Thanks! However, my PS3 for instance behaved a lot better. it would remember multiple DVDs for instance. The Sony very easily looses its place.

PS3 is a different beast. It is more like a computer, it is software based, has built in memory. All BD players will work the same way.

Great for Lovefilm. Supports HD.

Would anyone know if I can downgrade the firmware and how to do it? I'm trying to make this player region free but looks like need to have the 1008.1 firmware or lower to be able to do it.

Thanks

Im looking for a DVD region free hack for the SAMSUNG BD F6500. 

 

The open disc/ close , repeat 29334 does not work on F series. 

 

Anyone have one that actually works?

I have read that the older BD-P1600 & BD-P2500 had amazing low jitter via their TOSLINK, but is this true of all Samsung players since then?

I am trying to get a player that betters or equals my Panasonic DMP-BD45 with regards to BR playback, but with faster load times, but one that I can use for 24/192 FLAC playback into a DAC and tis want the lowest jitter signal as possible.

Samsung have recommended the BD-F6500 & 7500, but as these have optical SPDIF, I was wondering if the BD-F5500 would be as good with it having electrical SPDIF? I have always thought coaxial was better than optical, yet the 1600 & 2500 were TOSLINK I think.

Thanks for any advice. I am not looking to spend over £100 really.

Has anyone with this player and another good low jitter transport compared the SPDIF outs? Would love to know how CD playback compares between this and a good CD player. Has anyone played any high res music from it via SPDIF? According to Hi-Fi World the early Samsung blu ray players had jitter readings below 40pS, which would make them as good as practically any CD player as a transport.

Read a review of the BD-H6500 (updated F6500) which states it converts all FLAC files to 48kHz. I assume this is true of the F6500 too then, which is a deal breaker for me. I need high res native FLAC playback.
