BD-F5700 Blu Ray player Owner's Thread

Is there any remote control with a keyboard that can be used with the Samsung BD-F5700 Blu Ray player?

I like the F5700 player so far but the UI in most of the apps like Youtube & Netflix are tedious at best and downright hostile at worst.

I'm told the USB port on the front of the player is for media devices only and doesn't support a keyboard (and this seems to be true from the testing I did)

Is there any kind of remote keyboard or solution for entering text through the player?

Samsung BD-F5700 CD info?

I have a F5700 that I've been using for a month now and just last night played a CD through it. It didn't show the info for any of my albums that I tried, all commercially bought CDs. It juts showed blank artwork and listed the tracks as "Track 01, 02 etc..." Is there anyway I can go about having the track info and album art appear on the screen while playing CDs?

Thanks

Samsung BD-F5700

What is the consensus on the performance of the Samsung BD-F5700? I'm pairing it with a HU8550 TV. The width of the BD-F5700 works well for my situation/cabinet.

Stupid Problem Samsung BD-f5700 and Denon AVS-590

I tried to add a Samsung BD-F5700 to my system. When I set it to bitstream, my Denon 590 detects the DTS HD (or Dolby HD) but plays it at a tiny volume relative to the other tracks. I can turn up the volume, but if I switch to say a commentary track, that now is blaring (any non HD audio on the disk). Things work how I want with my old Sony player. I don't remember it being this hard. Has anyone had any issues like this?

I've had 2 problems with the BD-F5700, to wit:

1) It will not pass Dolby Digital audio from a bluray disc or from USB media to my Yamaha RX-V377 receiver. If either the bitstream (unprocessed) or the bitstream (re-encode Dolby Digital) options are selected, and the source audio is any flavor of DD, it decodes the DD to PCM 2-channel and passes that. It will pass DD from streaming services like Netflix. The workaround to this problem with bluray discs is to select bitstream (re-encode DTS), but that means never getting to hear TrueHD. No workaround to USB media with DD audio other than encoding audio into DTS.

2) At first, the unit had a very hard time playing Netflix videos, with lots of re-buffering. This problem seems to have gone away by itself, but not before I went out and bought a Roku stick. Apparently installing a Roku stick made the unit jealous, and it decided it better shape up or it would be returned.

Samsung Players with Audio Outputs

I've got a BD-F5700. but assume all Samsung players work the same way. If I connect a cable to the audio output, be it optical or coax, will the player continue to send audio signals through the HDMI cable? I would like to be able to switch between the 2 outputs for audio without physically removing the audio cable.

Well, as it turns out, the player does send audio through hdmi even with audio cable connected, so you can easily switch between the 2 inputs with an AVR. Also I as expected, the player will send dolby digital through the coax cable but not through hdmi. Apparently, Samsung & Yamaha don't like to shake hands and would rather do things anonymously.
