Amazon is listing it as having two HDMI. Is it true? Also, in order to take advantage of the new Sony trimilous technology you'll need a Sony TV that supports it right?

Only 1 HDMI output.

Yes, in order to take advantage of extended color you need the following:

1. BD media with extended color enabled. (E.g Mastered in 4K recent Sony release)
2. Recent Sony (from 2013) Television with extended color support
3. BDP-S6200 (or lesser x200 model). Some x100 models also supported this.

Been there, done that. Whilst it works, it doesn't do so reliably. Multiple HDMI repeaters in series are never a good idea.

If you actually need dual HDMI output ports, best to get an AVR that will support that function. I've never had to use the second HDMI port of my S790 as AVR supports both monitors quite well.

It could but it really depends on the deviecs. For instance if each device has different audio capabilitites, when using an HDMI splitter, everything might default to the capabilities of the least capable device.

This is great. I was in the market for another 3D blu-ray player and was thinking about buying another BDP-S790 but this time with a warranty since the first one crapped out after a year. I have some BestBuy gift cards saved up that I just might use to purchase the BDP-S6200 and this time around buy a 2 or 4 year warranty. rolleyes.gif

The BestBuy two year extended warranty on the S6200 is $25 and the four year extended warranty is $35 with the S6200 at retail price.. Although the lower price you get the S6200 for the lower the extended warranty will be. I'm not sure if it needs to be below $175 or $150 for the extended warranties to drop to the next pricing level.

Only if it doesn't break down. If it breaks down during the four year period than the warranty would be worth it. The S6200 is certainly more expensive than the vast majority of BD players out there for sale. Most BD players cost under $100.

For the BDP-S790 at BB a 2 year warranty is $34.99 and a 4 year is $39.99. So for roughly $10 a year I can be covered for 4 years. That sounds like a deal. And seeing how my 790 only lasted me about 14 months, and now I have to spend almost $200 for another player buying the warranty might save me money in the long run. Peace of mind.

Or you can buy at Costco if it is available and whenever it breaks down, you can return it.

you cats can justify your money as you wish. your opinion and i have mine.. smile.gif I love you guys though... wink.gif

i mean you have a manufacturer warranty right? so what the player fails in 3 months--you can go to amazon or fleabay and get a new one or good used one for 100 bux or so.

and how many drives have failed on you cats?

now if the 6200 was built like a tank like the s950 or older players, then thats one thing, but the 6200 is so cheap and flimsy, well... wink.gif

ive had a million (im so dramatic) dvd and blu ray players in my lifetime (silly little early adopter bug) and i have not ever had a drive fail. i think that money can be best spent on a movie disc or thumb drive or a nice top for the lady.. biggrin.gif

here, you cats give me the 10 dollars a month and ill insure your drive. if it breaks down, send it to me and i will paypal you the cost of a comparable drive of equal or lesser value. biggrin.gif

I can't be fussed over the cheap kit. I prefer to save my money and purchase extended warranty only for the expensive items that would cause some financial difficulty to replace.

That's $10 a year, not a month. So under a dollar a month.

I have owned around 25 BD players/HD DVD players since Spring 2006. I've only had three of them have issues. Two were either fixed or replaced with the bestBuy extended warranty and one was just thrown away. but those were also the players that were mostly metal. Ones from 2009 and earlier. I've not had any issues with the players since they have cost much less and have been made with cheaper parts. but the extended warranties on those also cost a lot less than players costings several hundred dollars.

When i got my two s5100's I got one with an extended warranty from bestBuy and the one from Amazon I didn't get the extended warranty. When I get the S6200 I will get an extended warranty if i pick it up from BestBuy. Even though I probably won't use it, if I ever have to it's much nicer just being bale to drop it off at the local Bestbuy to get fixed or replaced.

I do hope its been fixed though as its quite annoying.

Well, done some more testing, it happens on DTS 5.1 MKV's aswell, not just DTS-HD as I originally thought.

Has anyone with a 6200 successfully passed DD+ (from Netflix) to their AVR for decoding? My Denon 4311 only shows DD being decoded when watching a DD+ audio-enabled Netflix stream.

If the warranty gives you peace of mind, then so be it, but the ROI is typically terrible.

Besides the fact that you'll likely replace the player before it breaks down because you'll want the latest technological improvements, even if it does break the warranty may not cover the repair or replacement cost -- there is so much fine print about what constitutes a manufacture defect vs it was your fault. Or, they'll pay to pay to repair it, but you have to pay to ship it to them -- so the warranty actually cost you a lot more than what you originally paid. (I had a subwoofer that died a month after I bought it; the manufacturer repaired it for free, but I had to ship it to them, and the shipping cost was brutal).

I've also found that stores like Amazon and even the manufacturers are pretty flexible when it comes to helping you out with broken electronics (which is why I'm buying the 6200 from Amazon).

How do you check the bitrate? Info just says 1080 super hd and 5.1 (primary).

Are there settings in the 6200's menu that would prevent DD+ from being output?

No. Bitrate doesn't effect if you get a DD+ stream. You're either get DD+ or not. Thats the whole point of DD+. It's designed for streaming unlike the original DD and can work when bandwidth is a issue.

If you selected DD+ 5.1 for the netflix title and have a DD+ compatible receiver and are using HDMI that should be enough. Are you getting trueHd and DTS-ma for BD material?

The player sends truehd and DTS-ma to the avr for decoding no problem. However, it just shows DD coming for Netflix with DD+ chosen. It is my understanding that DD+ contains the old DD data in it, so it seems my avr is using that. I just don't understand why.

Can anybody speak on the 6200's performance with DVD upscaling? Also, if possible how the DVD upscaling compares with the BDP-S790?

Also, does the 6200 have the additional picture adjustments for discs and streamed content like the BDP-S790?

Thanks.
