Yeah the new cable didn't work. It was 6$ so I guess it will go in the box of wires. Not sure it is worth shipping back! Now that I think about it, with HDMI in all the rooms, not sure I need the box of wires anymore either!

Denon X2000 is on the way for 290$ as a refurb. Crazy how last year's models are basically half off. Now I will have my options open as others upboard suggested. Now the projector, DVD, and receiver are all new, so I should be good to go for a while! And 4K an 3D options, although I have no interest now, are open.

Thanks for the input, I appreciate it.

Question on the quick start feature on the 6200. Does the player keep the blu-ray spinning slightly when powered down/off?

Neither of my S6200s do.

Just wondering since I leave blu-rays in the drive and it was making a faint ticking/knocking noise like it was spinning slowly. When I powered up my 6200 this morning with the bluray in it started buzzing all loud until I ejected it. But played movie normally when I put the drive in again. I turned off the quick start function on mine hope my drive dont go out on me. Thanks.

it may spin up once powered on with disc inserted, but will stop down after several seconds.

if you are concerned, remove any discs and shut off quick start.

Had my 6200 now for a few weeks and zero issues. Plays everything I throw at it and streams flawlessly. This player is going down as one of the best Blu ray players I have yet to own.

I agree. 1200 and 6200 are great so far, granted Ive only used the 1200 as a streamer at night, but it does a great job.

5200 v 6200

Looking for a new 3D blu ray player-other than 4K upconversion, is there any significant differences between the 5200 and 6200. I send the audio to my AVR for decoding, so that is not an issue- but what about the picture quality (I assume that they should be the same??)? Was almost thinking of going with Oppo, but then reason set in-it is digital, so picture quality can't really be any better (without Darbee version), right?
Thanks

The 6200 has a dual core CPU, a front display, and two USB ports.(I use the back USB port for a flash drive for BD Live)

The 5200 has a single core CPU, no display, and only one USB port.

There might be other differences but those are the three reasons I went with the S6200 when I upgraded my S5100s. The S6200 seemed like the real sucessor to the S5100.

In my experience, not right. We have different Blu-ray players in use in several rooms. For consistency, each new purchase was tested on the same Panasonic plasma television. Our Sony 5100, Panasonic 320, and Panasonic 220, for example, deliver a better overall picture than the Oppo BDP-83. The Sony and Panasonics provide better sharpness on Blu-ray discs and better upscaling on regular DVDs. A Sony 590 (two years old) has a grainy structure that the Sony 5100 does not have. Our Sony 390's picture looks identical to our 590. The Panasonic 320 and 220 share the same video performance among themselves as well. The color rendition is a bit warmer on all the Sonys compared with the Panasonics.

So, no, not all players have the same picture quality simply because they are digital. Within a given brand of the same model year, though, I've found models close in price tend to have the same picture quality since they usually share the same basic video circuitry. Other features are what typically cause price differences.

All post-processing was turned off. It is, of course, the only way to properly compare the baseline performance of players.
