which players can play DVDs at 24hz?

I know the Oppo players can do this. Any cheaper options?

It's not 24hz its 24 frames per second (fps). You should post your question in the Help Me Find a Player thread.

Any one know how to fix the "HDMI ERROR - HDMI Compromised" thing on this Panasonic TC-P65S2? Thanks!

Hi all

New member, but have been an avid reader for years.

Recently invested in a Panasonic 50" GT60 and am looking for Blu-ray player to do it some justice (I haven't had a dedicated Blu-ray player for the longest time). I do already own some region A locked movies so getting something thats Multi-region is essential. Fellow forum members TPS seem to offer a good selection of hardware modded players and I've narrowed it down to:

- Sony BDP-S7200 - £299
- Panasonic DMP-BDT460 - £299
- Panasonic DMP-BDT700 - £539

Another candidate:
- Oppo BDP 93 - £450

Now I've read mixed opinions on here as to whether all Blu-ray players output the same quality for Blu-ray movies over HDMI, and judging by the HDMI benchmarking done by 'Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity' it doesn't seem like all do, with some not outputting accurate colours/adding sharpening which can't be bypassed.

Now, all I simply want is a player that will output an accurate image that is faithful to the material on the Blu-ray disc. Good build quality, fast loads times, and some future proofing is preferable. Other than that, don't really need any other bells and whistles in terms of DVD upscaling, dedicated DAC etc.

The Panny BDT700 looks incredibly solid and beautiful, but at that price point, like many have pointed out, you could potentially invest in an Oppo (In my case it would have to be the older BDP 93 which I'm not sure is dated, I definitely don't want to spend £600 on a 103)

This is also where I start to wonder whether there is much difference, if any, in terms of Blu-ray picture quality between a £300 vs £500 player.

Hopefully someone can help me

Someone reading this might realize I've been reading and sometimes commenting in the Blu-ray forum threads because I have been contemplating replacing my PS3 Slim with a standalone Blu-ray player. I've had the Sony S5100 before, which I returned due to Netflix issues and the player's inability to stay connected to the Sony network.

Well, I'm torn again. I've been looking closely at the LG BDP 340 and 540, the Panasonic BD91, or last year's Panasonic 230, and the Sony S1200 or 3200. I also was considering the Samsung H5900, but I hear the drive is noisy. However, I like the UI of the Samsungs. What are the opinions on the LGs, Panasonics, and Sonys? My research seems to say:
  • LG - Netflix issues on the 340. 530 rated best of 2014 by Wirecutter.com and Robert Heron.
  • Panasonic - Few reviews of this one. Last year's were noisy. Good DVD upscaling. Poor UI.
  • Sony - Softer picture, but better motion. Still requires connecting to Sony's network, which is a nuisance. XMB is long in the tooth, but IMO better than many other UIs.

Are there any currently available players other than Oppo that can internally decode Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HDMA 7.1 and send it as PCM over HDMI? It seems most available players will decode one format in 7.1, but will send the other only as downmixed 2Ch.

Ideas?
